The Freising softball women in Regensburg had to be content with a split.
It didn't look like that after the first match.
- For the softball ladies of the Freising Grizzlies it was the first time this Bundesliga season to an away match day. After three wins and one defeat in previous home games, they had to play against the Regensburg Legionnaires on Saturday - and returned with a split from the Upper Palatinate. The Freising women won the first match with 11: 3 runs - they lost the second with 0: 2. The Grizzlies are now with 4: 2 wins in second place in the southern season - behind the undefeated Stuttgart Reds.
As guests, the Freising was the first to hit: Mara Sandner got the first score thanks to a strong hit by Fiona Brosch.
After that, Brosch was also on the mound as a pitcher and did a good job.
Nevertheless, the Regensburg women managed to score two points.
Due to the Mercy Rule, game one was over after the sixth inning
The Grizzlies did not want to put up with that, however: They switched Shaya Raziorrouh on as pitcher in the third inning - and she and her teammates did not allow any points in the field until the fifth round. In the end, the legionnaires secured another counter - but it was nowhere near enough to keep up with the Freising girls. Because thanks to strong strokes, clever use of the game and mistakes by the opponent, they scored ten more points throughout the game. The game ended with a score of 11: 3 in the sixth inning thanks to the Mercy Rule. Before that, I switched back to Brosch as a pitcher.
In the second duel, however, the tide turned.
The Regensburg women now use an American pitcher.
Their game wasn't great, but somehow the Grizzlies couldn't use the balls.
This played into the cards for the home team: The Oberpfälzer women got two points in the first inning and never let the Freising girls run over the home plate.
Countable for Freising?
The bears managed to keep their opponents in check as the game progressed, which was also thanks to pitcher Mara Sandner.
In the end it was 2-0 for Regensburg.
There is an opportunity to take revenge on the coming weekend
The Freising women are still satisfied with the split.
"It was definitely two good games," emphasized player Rebecca Hillebrand.
“Of course it always gets better.” The Grizzlies girls get the opportunity to do it even better and to return the favor for the zero number in the second game on the next home game day on Saturday, June 19th.
The two rematches against the legionnaires will take place at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
