Austria: Stock City Cubs Stay Unbeaten

AUSTRIA – The Stock City Cubs continued its perfect start to the 2012 season with a pair of hard-fought Austrian Baseball League victories over the Vienna Metrostars. With the twin bill sweep, the Cubs improved to 6-0 on the young season.

Moritz Hackl collected an inside-the-park home run to help Stock City claim a 6-4 win in Sunday’s opening contest. The Cubs finished off the sweep with a 4-2 triumph in the second game.

The Attnang-Puchheim Athletics (6-2) knocked off the Dornbirn Indians (3-3) twice, 12-2 and 6-4, while the Vienna Wanderers (2-4) topped the Union Kufstein Vikings (0-6) in a pair of hotly-contest encounters, 6-5 and 3-1.

The final matchup on slate last weekend saw the Vienna-Neustadt Ducks (3-3) split a doubleheader against the Schwaz Tigers (2-4).
