Germany: Solingen Alligators Win North Division

The Solingen Alligators won the German Baseball League North Division over the past weekend. The Alligators took two games from the Berlin Sluggers without allowing a single run. After the sweep the Alligators will be the #1 seed heading into the playoffs and now await the end of the South Division schedule to see who they will face in the first round of the playoffs.

A day later, the Bonn Capitals, knowing they needed a sweep to finish in 2nd place, took two games from the Cologne Cardinals allowing only one run themselves. They finished a game ahead of the Paderborn Untouchables for the 2nd seed and now await the conclusion of the South Division schedule.
