The Challengers Baseball and Softball Club is proud to introduce the newly acquired pitcher Lowuin Sacramento. The 26-year old Venezuelan arrived in Zurich on Thursday to join the Challengers organization for the remainder of the 2014 season. The big right-hander was signed by the Colorado Rockies in 2006. The El Tigre native played three years with the DSL Rockies, where he pitched in 40 games and had an ERA of 3.00 ERA a 3-5 record in 66 innings of work with 36 strikeouts.
Sacramento was also named on the Spanish National Team roster for the 2010 European Championship, where he appeared in two games as a reliever. The last couple of years he played in the Spanish Division of Honor for several teams. He already knows the Heerenschürli ballpark, as he played with Team Venezuela at the Swiss International Alpine Cup from June 27 till 29 in Zürich, where he tossed a complete game allowing one earned run and two hits with no walks and 13 strikeouts. He will make his debut for the Challengers on Sunday, August 10 against the Bern Cardinals.
