No nightmares in Düsseldorf
On a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning, the Senators faced off against the team from Neunkirchen. Due to several factors, the team was only sparsely manned and only 11 players found themselves on the lineup card. However, this did not prevent everyone from going all in for the last game before a short summer break.
The Senators started with Finn Jakoby on the mound, who did an excellent job for five innings. With not even a handful of hits allowed, he was able to keep the opposing bats in check with numerous strikeouts to show for.
In the 6th inning, Robin Thorenz took over on the bump. The good lefty lived up to his task and finished the next two innings without any problems.
The exciting question, however, is how the offensive was to perform, which hasn’t been rewarded with points in the last few games despite solid performances. After many close games and especially the last game against Dortmund, which was lost in extra innings, one might think that frustrations at the pleat would be high.
An aggressive and attentive approach however led to many hits and stolen bases. Especially in the early innings, the Senators were able to hold their ground and scored important runs. In the end, the Senators were able to score 6 and thus won the game deservedly 6 to 0.
The coach also had many positive words about Philip Kirschner, who excelled in both offense and defense.
Coming off of a big win, the team went into the second game of the day feeling quite positive.
Unfortunately, in the second game they didn’t turn out to be the better team. An excellent performance from Neunkirchen at the dish put the Düsseldorf pitcher under a lot of pressure and was able to score many runs in the first two innings.
The Senators then tried to make a comeback in the middle innings. Despite good contact, hardly any runs could be scored, thanks to the opponents’ good pitchers.
So we ended up with a final score of 2 to 11.
All in all, however, the Senators seemed satisfied and are now full of anticipation for the second round of the 2. Baseball Bundesliga.
