SAISONENDE BEI DEN CHALLENGERS
Am vorletzten Wochenende ist mit dem NLA-Team nach den Softballerinnen und dem NLB-Team auch die dritte Equipe in den Playoff-Halbfinals ausgeschieden. Das Team von Headcoach Chris Palatinus zeigte einen grossartigen Kampfgeist. Am Samstag konnte mit einem 3-0 Erfolg gegen die Flyers ein fünftes und entscheidendes Spiel in der Serie erzwungen werden. Dieses ging am Sonntag in Therwil jedoch denkbar knapp mit 5-6 verloren, womit das Saisonende besiegelt war.

Ein versöhnlicher Saisonabschluss gelang dem 1.Liga-Team. Dieses gewann sein letztes Saisonspiel gegen die Lions/Rainbows im Baseballstadion Heerenschürli mit 20-14.

Das war es somit mit der on-the-field Action für 2014. Ein Fixpunkt im Challengers-Kalender steht noch an. Am Sonntag, 30. November findet die diesjährige Generalversammlung statt.

CHALLENGERS LOSE GAME 5, FLYERS MOVE INTO FINALS
Sunday September 28, 2014 - by Chris Palatinus
The Challengers lost the winner-takes-it-all Game 5 on Sunday, September 28, as the Flyers edged the C's 6-5. The team of head coach Chris Palatinus opened the score with two runs in the top of the first inning but couldn't hold on. Trailing 3-6 in the top of the ninth, the C's came within one run, but the Flyers recorded the third out with the tying run on second base to eventually move into the Finals.

With the defeat the Challengers' season ends in the semi-finals for the third consecutive year. The Flyers will play the Zürich Barracudas in the Finals with Game 1 taking place at the Heerenschürli ballpark on Saturday, October 4.

CHALLENGERS FORCE GAME 5
Saturday September 27, 2014 - by Chris Palatinus
The Challengers evened their best-of-five Semifinal Series with the Therwil Flyers at 2, after winning Game 4 at the Heerenschürli ballpark on Saturday, September 27. Lowuin Sacramento tossed another masterpiece and Ryan Byrne drove in all three runs en route to a 3-0 shutout victory for the C's.

The two teams exchanged zeros on the scoreboard through five frames, before the C's put the first run on the board. Säntis Zeller doubled with one out in the sixth and was driven in two batters later by Ryan Byrne's RBI-single. And Byrne added two insurance runs in the eight. After fouling off eight pitches he hit a line drive into right field enabling Harry Bregy and James Sanders to score with two outs. Lowuin Sacramento outdueled Flyers starter Gavin Guarrera, as he threw nine innings of two-hit ball while striking out 14, in what was the second best start in Challengers history with a game score of 95. He allowed only two earned runs in 35.1 innings pitched and lowered his ERA to 0.53.
