2021 U12 European Championship: Belgium no Match For Germany

In Belgium’s first game of today, it did not stand a chance against a strong German team. For the Germans it was its third double digit win and its second with twenty runs or more.

Belgium 2 – 22 Germany
Unfortunately for the host nation, the Germans were way too strong. The German pitching limited Belgium to one hit and two runs. The Germans on the other hand saw the pitches of the Belgian pitching staff very well as the team collected sixteen base hits. Four of the runs that Belgium allowed were unearned, thanks to four miscues the defense made.

After the first inning, Belgium already trailed by many runs. A three-run home run by Jayme Warlies opened the score and in the remainder of the inning, the Germans extended to a nine run lead.

In the second inning, Belgium managed to do something back. A wild pitch and a a fielding error by the German first baseman allowed Belgium to score its only two runs of the game.

The Germans would add three more runs in the second inning and a whopping ten in the third, that ended the game prematurely due to the mercy rule.

Julius Bähr earned the win for Germany as he pitched 1.1 perfect innings. Owen Adams took the loss as he lasted only one inning in which he gave up nine runs (six earned) on nine hits and a walk.

The best hitter for Germany was Benito Bull, who went 3 for 3 with a double, an RBI and four runs scored.

Thanks to the three convincing victories, Germany makes a statement of being a serious contender for winning the championship.
