After the 3:6 defeat on Friday evening on their own field, the Ducks are looking for revenge on Saturday afternoon in Traiskirchen. Without pitching ace Eoghan McGarry, who was out due to illness, Klaus Scheicher (4.2 innings), Vitus Gneist (3.1) and closer Alexander Kienberger (1.0) will take over on the pitch – and the trio should do a good job.

The Grasshoppers only managed six hits that afternoon. Nevertheless, the hosts were once again fighting for victory for a long time. The first two hits came in the eventful second inning, in which the Hoppers scored two points thanks, among other things, to an error, a walk and runs batted in by Niklas Fröhlich and Tobias Werner. The Traiskirchen team also took a 2-1 lead. Previously, Max Tracey had put the Ducks ahead 1-0 after a single from Elias Kreska.

Wiener Neustadt presents, Traiskirchen answers

In the third period it was the Ducks’ turn again. Henry Leabourn came to bat with bases loaded and one out and scored a single to make it 2-2. Melvin Perdue then “sacrificed” himself – his fly-out became a run for Elias Kreska – and then Moritz Scheicher benefited from an error, so that Wiener Neustadt took the lead 4-2.

The Hoppers’ answer didn’t take long to arrive: In the fourth inning, two runs were scored again – Markus Trimmel and Kyle Ashby (one run batted in each) as well as McKee and Fröhlich (one run each) made it 4:4.

The Ducks pull away and get the win

In the second half of the game, the Ducks defense got the Traiskirchen offense under control. The decisive scores were also recorded in our own attack. In the fifth inning, Perdue hit a solo home run to give the reigning champions the lead again.

The Wiener Neustädter put one run on the scoreboard in the sixth and ninth innings and ultimately deservedly won 7:4. The Traiskirchen Grasshoppers were still able to look back on a good series. Like against the Blue Bats, the Indians and in the first double of the season against the Ducks, a split is achieved again. Hoppers star McKee is also satisfied in the interview.
