SAPPERS GO LONG BALL!

SAPPERS GO LONG BALL!

The Red Sappers won this saturday afternoon their 4th game in as many games. They remain unbeaten in the SWBSV Landesliga while beating Diekirch Phoenix 18-7 after 7 innings.



The ballgame was decided by the long ball. The Sappers hit 4 Home Runs in this game, Nickels hit 2 Home Runs including a game tying grand slam in the bottom of the third, the score was then 5-5, Fermin R. added a Home Run his second of the year as well as Martinez, his second of the year.



The game didn't start so well as the Phoenix jumped to an early 5-1 lead but the Red Sappers would come back thanks to the aforementioned grand slam by Nickels and his pitching which was dominant as he allowed 2 runs over 4 innings and 1/3rd. Nickels was the story of the game as he did it defensively as well as offensively, going 3-5 with 2 Home Runs and 6 RBI's.



The Sappers hope that they can keep going like this! Go Sapp's Go!



Next game: Red Sappers @ St. Ingbert at 2pm at the Wallerfeld!
