RECAP
C's REACH .500 MARK, SWEEP CARDS
Saturday July 12, 2014 - by Chris Palatinus
The Challengers evened their record at 7-7, as they swept the Bern Cardinals on Saturday, July 12 at the Heerenschürli ballpark led by two strong starting pitchers. Ryan Byrne lifted the C's to an 8-1 win in Game 1, as he allowed only one unearned run and four hits with four walks while striking out 18 batters, what is also the second best mark in Challengers history, just behind Robert Sedin's 20 K's performance on June 27 in 2013 against the Zürich Lions.
Robert Sedin carried a perfect game into the sixth frame of the second game, as he led the C's to a 10-0 shutout win over the Cardinals. He ended up tossing seven innings of two-hit ball.
