Bern Cardinals 8 – 16 Therwil Flyers
In Saturday’s game the Flyers had the home field advantage. After a scoreless first inning, the Bern Cardinals’ offense exploded for six runs in the second inning. The Flyers countered with three runs in the bottom of the second. In the top of the third, the Cardinals scored once and the Flyers scored four runs to tie the game at seven. From there, the Flyers clearly walked away as it scored nine more runs in the remaining six innings against just one for the Cardinals.
Hide Oshima earned the win after seven innings as he allowed eight runs on fourteen hits and two walks as he struck out six. Arnaud Droxler took the loss. In six innings he surrendered twelve runs (eleven earned) on eleven hits and seven walks as he fanned three.
Nick Kyrose was the best hitter for the Therwil squad as he went 4 for 4 with three doubles, three RBI and three runs scored.

Therwil Flyers 16 – 3 Bern Cardinals
One monster inning did it all for the Flyers but without that nine-run third inning, they would have won as well. At the start of that third inning, the Flyers had a 4-0 lead already. Eventually, the Flyers would prevail 16-3. Pitcher Chris Horne helped his own case as he went 2 for 2 with an RBI. According to the official box score, Horne earned the win even though he only pitched four innings. But according to the rules, a pitcher gets the win with at least five innings pitched, the win should be appointed to Lukas Croton who pitched a scoreless ninth inning.

Anyhow, the Therwil Flyers are only one win away from their second championship in a row, their fourth in the last five years and their thirteenth overall.
