Our Youth League team improved constiderably in the game on July 12 against the Füssen Royal Bavarians. The three pitcher Michael Schirmer, Tobias Hofmann and Benedikt Dangl had good control and again the defense worked well, despite being charged with 3 errors. The players have gained confidence in batting. However, the second Füssen pitcher was too good for them, which ultimately cost them the game.
After an initial deficit of 1:4 after the first inning, the Mallards charged back and scored 9 runs against Füssen’s 4 in the second. The third inning saw now runs, but in the fourth and final inning the guests landed three hits, leading to runs. Three strikeouts ended Erding’s chances of turning the game.
Although losing with one run, the youth players were satisified with the day. Best batters were Moritz Christ with 1 hit and 2 runs, followed by Michael Schirmer with 2 hits and 1 run.
Coach Jörg Frank:
The kids played really well today. They can be justly proud of their achievements – I am, for one.
