EC Regensburg: Unipol Bologna Leads Standings After Day 2

Day 2 of the European Cup in Regensburg is in the books. There wasn’t a close game all day as one game didn’t last the full nine and a team from Italy improved to 2-0 to lead the standings.

Game one featured the Bern Cardinals and the Eagles Prague. Both teams came into the game having lost their first game and needed to get on the winning path.

Bern Cardinals 4, Eagles Prague 12

Bern started off strong scoring three runs in the top of the first inning and even picked up another run in the top of the second. Things were looking good, but that was all they would get. The Eagles took the lead in the bottom of the first scoring four runs of their own and never looked back taking advantage of five Bern errors to score six unearned runs.

Daniel Vitek started off slow giving up four runs in two innings, but then shut down the Cardinals for six more innings to earn the win for Prague. He got some offensive support from Matej Hejma who had a nice day at the plate. Hejma scored three runs, drove in four more, and collected a pair of hits going 2-for-4 including a two-run home run. He also stole a pair of bases.

Helping out Hejma offensively was third baseman Lukas Borecky who added three hits of his own (3-for-4), scored three runs, and stole two bases.

Patrick Lawson took the loss for Bern pitching just 3.2 innings allowing nine runs (six earned) on just five hits. He struggled with control walking six batters and unleashing five wild pitches. He also hit two batters.

T&A San Marino 4, Unipol Bologna 14 (8)

Roger Luque got some much needed run support to pick up the win for Unipol Bologna as they improved their record to 2-0. Luque went 5.2 innings allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits en route to the win.

Juan Carlos Infante had the big blow for Bologna with a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The game was close through seven innings with Bologna leading 5-4. They would score nine runs in the bottom of the eighth to end the game early. Two San Marino pitchers failed to record an out giving up big run totals in the eighth inning.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates 9, Buchbinder Legionaere 1

Amsterdam busted out of the gates scoring three runs in the first two innings and cruised from there giving up just five hits and taking advantage of six Legionaere errors.

Ben Grove tossed 6.1 innings allowing just a single run on five hits to pick up the win for Amsterdam. Kyle Ward came in to finish off the game and didn’t give up a hit the rest of the way.

Michael Duursma had a nice day at the plate. The shortstop went 2-for-4, drove in two runs, scored three more, and stole a base. Bjorn Hato also had a nice day going 2-for-5, stole two bases, and scored two more.
