Mainz Athletics beat up Regensburg Legionaere in game one

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor baseball bundesligaJust like in the Netherlands, the German competition is at the stage of the championship series now. Where the first game in the Netherlands was a close one (a 6-5 for L&D Amsterdam Pirates over Curacao Neptunus), it wasn’t the case in game one in Germany.

The championship series between two South Division teams, the Mainz Athletics and the Regensburg Buchbinder Legionaere, took off yesterday. In Mainz the home team was vastly superior in a game that was shortened due to the mercy rule thanks to a 13-2 blow out score.

After Mainz took a 4-0 lead in the third inning, the game went without any runs being scored for the next three innings. But in the sixth Mainz would score four more runs.
In the mean time  the Mainz pitching dominated the Regensburg lineup. In six innings Jan-Niclas Stoecklin limited Regensburg to only four hits as he walked one and struck out eight.
Mike Bolsenbroek, the ace of Regensburg, was hit hard in only five innings. Bolsebroek surrendered eight runs on thirteen hits and took the loss. His successor Jan Tomek, did not fare much better as he gave up five runs on two hits and a walk in just 1.1 inning.

The Athletics’ offense caught fire in the third when Lucas Dickman singled home Lennard Stoecklin and scored a run himself on Kevin Kotowski’s single.
Belgian international Thomas de Wolf and German international Max Boldt lifted Mainz to an 8-0 lead in the sixth with back-to-back homeruns.

Max Boldt and Thomas de Wolf both drove in five runs. Boldt went 2 for 4 and scored two runs. De Wolf collected three hits and drew two walks in five plate appearances.

Here is the summary of the game. Play by play announcer is Tim Collins.
