Czech Republic: Three-Way Tie Atop Standings

CZECH REPUBLIC – AVG Draci Brno moved into a three-way tie for the top spot in the Czech Baseball League with a three-game sweep over Kotlarka Prague last weekend.

Draci is knotted with Eagles Prague and Hrosi Brno in first-place with identical 7-2 cards.

Tomas Polansky went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, and Thomas Brice tallied two RBIs on a pair of doubles to help Draci claim an 8-3 victory in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader.

Martin Schneider (1-0) notched the relief win despite surrendering a run in just one frame of work.

The Czech powerhouse, which won an unprecedented 16 consecutive league titles until last year, nipped Kotlarka 7-6 in the second game. Michal Sobotka (1-1) scattered two scores over seven innings to get the decision.

Draci completed the sweep on Sunday with a 10-5 win as Petr Minarik (3-0) threw seven scoreless frames to remain perfect on the young season.

Hrosi Brno and Eagles Prague also bagged a trio of victories. Hrosi disposed of Skokani Olomouc (10-6, 10-5 and 3-0), while the Eagles manhandled Olympia Blansko, 7-1, 15-1, and 10-6.

Martin Drong (2-0) went the distance allowing just five hits to help Arrows Ostrava avoid a series sweep with an 8-2 triumph over Technika Brno in Sunday’s finale.

The reigning Czech titleholder took the first two games a day earlier, 16-5 and 3-1.
