The baseball season is under way in France as Rouen looks to keep up their continued dominance in the French Division I. So far they are still going strong starting the season 5-1 to stay tied atop the standings with Montpellier.
Rouen’s only loss so far this season was a 7-5 defeat to Toulouse (4-2) in Week 2. They will take on Senart (4-2) this coming weekend.
Tied with Rouen at the top is Montpellier who dropped their only game to Paris University Club in Week 2.
The newly promoted French Cubs from Chartres have struggled so far making the jump to Division 1. It took them until Week 3 to compete in a series even though they dropped it to Stade Toulouse.
There are only two series this coming weekend but both top teams will be in action. Rouen travels to Senart and Montpellier travels to Paris.
French Division I Standings:
1. Montpellier Barracudas 3-1
