Austria: Union Kufstein Vikings Pick Up First Win of Season

AUSTRIA – The Union Kufstein Vikings picked up its first win of the 2012 season with a 6-4 victory over the top-ranked Stock City Cubs this past weekend in the Austrian Baseball League.

Bubbie Buzachero drilled an early two-run shot to help the Vikings snap a seven-game losing streak and deal the surprising Cubs their first setback of the year in the opening game of a twinbill.

Stock City (7-1) salvaged a split with a narrow 3-2 win in the second game as Cubs starter Seth Brevins outdueled Buzachero in a low-scoring affair.

The Vienna Wanderers and the GEI Attnang-Puchheim Athletics battled to a draw. Raphael Mayr singled home a pair of scores to help the A’s claim a 3-1 victory in the first contest.

The Wanderers avoided the sweep in a big way with a lopsided 12-0 victory. Jeff Reeves punched out 10 batters in just four frames to post the win.

The Diving Ducks Vienna Neustadt and Dornbirn Indians also split a pair of games, while the twinbill between the Schwaz Tigers and the Vienna Metrostars was rained out.
