Czech Republic: Technika Brno Opens Title Defense with Sweep of Olympia Blansko

CZECH REPUBLIC – Daniel Mraz popped one of six home runs and Technika Brno opened its Czech Baseball League title defense on Saturday with a 15-1 drubbing over Olympia Blansko in the front end of a twin bill.

Matt Lawman, Jiri Marek, Matej Mensik, Wayne Ough and Richard Sazavsky also hit long balls for the reigning league champion.

Martin Stritecky (1-0) scattered four hits, no walks and six strikeouts over five innings of one-run ball to get the win.

Technika edged upset-minded Olympia, 3-2, in the second game behind three dominant relief frames by Jakub Toufar (1-0) before completing the three-game sweep on Sunday with a 9-2 victory.

The Arrows Ostrava stunned Czech powerhouse AVG Draci Brno, 7-4, to avoid a season-opening sweep. Draci won the first two games a day earlier, 5-2 and 12-0.

Skokani Olomouc regrouped after an uninspired 16-0 loss to Kotlarka Prague in the season opener to win the next two games, 5-4 and 7-5.

Hrosi Brno took the rubber match against Eagles Prague in blowout fashion with an 18-5 rout. The Eagles claimed a narrow 7-6 decision in the first game of the new season before dropping the second contest, 8-6.
