August 3/4, 2019: Buttermaker Cup International Tournament in Freising (D)
August 17, 2019: Beasts Home Division I Tournament in Zwingen (CH)
Neuenburg am Rhein, June 9 2019: The Beasts played their second Division II tournament of the season on Sunday. The first game against the Flyers didn't disappoint. Both teams were able to get the ball in play and score many runs. In the top of the seventh inning, the team was able to tie the game with four runs at eleven, which sent the game to extra innings. Unfortunatley, the Flyers came out on top with a game winning RBI-single in the eighth.
Game two of the day was a first this Season as the Beasts played TruckStar for the first time. A total of nine Beasts managed a multi-hit game (six of those Beasts even got three hits). That offensive outburst lead to an undisputed 19-1 win.
The hosts Atomics were the next opponent for the Beasts. Were as the Beasts clobbered 24 hits against TruckStar, the team was only able to collect a total of six hits in that game. This circumstance and the many defensive Errors led to a wel-deserved Victory for the Atomics (11-3).
Finally, the team got to Play the Orcas in their last game of the day and it as a doozy of a game. After making up a 4-run deficit, the team tied the game at 6 before entering the last Inning. There the Beasts got all ten players to the plate and scored a total of seven runs for the lead. Half a strong defensive inning later, the team had its second Victory of the day.
The team once again had a lot of fun that day and the two losses didn't change that. The team did a great job all day long and will keep working on improving on both sides of the plate. Usually we don't like singling out individual players, but in this instance we just must mention two players who stand out in particular: Jason Selby, who reached base 12 times in 16 plate appearances and Jan Clausen, who pitched his first complete Tournament and did a marvoullous job at it.
The next Tournament is just around the corner. See you on the 16th of June in Hünenberg. Go Beasts!
