Great Britain: Herts Falcons Stay Unbeaten

GREAT BRITAIN – The Herts Falcons stayed perfect in the British National Baseball League Easter Sunday with a doubleheader sweep over the previously unbeaten Essex Arrows.

Jake Michels and Dave Tretheway paced the offensive onslaught as the Falcons rolled to a 15-7 victory in the first game. Michaels collected a double, two triples and five RBIS, while Tretheway drove in six scores with a pair of doubles and a three-bagger.

Jordan Farkas (2-0) picked up the decision while former Herts pitcher Darrin Ward (1-1) took the loss.

Essex (2-2) raced out to a four-run lead in the second contest before Herts (4-0) countered with seven unanswered runs to earn a 7-4 win.

The Harlow Nationals captured a pair of narrow wins against the Bracknell Blazers. Jamie Ratcliff carried a no-hitter into the seventh and finished with a one-hitter in a tension-packed 1-0 victory. The Nationals finished off the sweep with a 4-2 win in the second meeting as Reiniel Martinez doubled and homered.
