The Guggenberg Legionnaires Regensburg clearly have the upper hand against the guests from Mainz in their first home game of the young season in the evening. In the Armin Wolf Baseball Arena, after a lively exchange of blows, the score was 12:4 for the home team

They were able to score in the first inning. Eric Harms scored the run on a fielder’s choice. Shortly afterwards, the home team loaded the bases. But Mainz starting pitcher Kevin Schnorbach kept his nerve and took the third. But the Guggenberg Legionnaires didn’t mourn the missed opportunity for long.

Just one inning later, Devon Ramirez made it two with an RBI single before Antonio Torres pushed the lead to four runs with a two-run homer. Two innings later, Devon Ramirez scored the fifth run on a passed ball from third base before Antonio Torres scored the sixth run with an RBI single.

The Athletics only had a chance to score their own points in the fifth inning. However, with runners on second and third base with no outs, Regensburg starting pitcher Joe Cedano de Leon showed all his class and sent the next two Mainz batters back into the dugout with a strikeout before ending the inning with a flyout and no Mainz runs . Afterwards, his working day was over after 70 pitches, 48 ​​of which were strikes.

As a result, the Athletics found their way into the game better. In the sixth inning, Peter Saldana got the guests on the scoreboard with an RBI single and shortly afterwards Carl Feldmann shortened the score to four runs with a walk with the bases loaded. An inning later, the Athletics loaded the bases again. But at the end of the inning, the Rhine-Hesse team only recorded one run. Not enough to put the legionnaires in trouble again as the game progresses. Quite the opposite. In the same inning, a 6-run rally by the home team brought the final decision. Felix Thierolf’s solo home run in the eighth round only made the result a little cosmetic.
