There were 2 really interesting matchups today at Horbach field. And man, there were some great plays and the ball was hit really hard today. In the morning game the Emperors won their second game in a row, taking revenge on the Dragons for the loss in the round robin phase. Although Baptise Blancot homered twice for the Dragons, he could not carry the Dragons pas the Emperors. Jamie Joseph homered for the Emperors and Darnel Collins went 3 for 4 for the Emperors. The Dragons ran out of pitching after the 5th inning when the score was 4-3. The Emperors ended up winning 9-5.
The Chargers were carried by Robberse and Manoff. They both homered and Robberse closed out the game when the Vikings were pushing in the 6th inning, putting the tying run at the plate. Robberse sent Hoyer and Willem back to the dugout with a strikeout. Olle Jerfsten went 4.2 innings for the Chargers for the win. Matis Crouwel homered for the Vikings.
