Game #7: Untouchables Paderborn vs Swiss National Team

190502 Pad Swiss 0196

The Paderborn Untouchables couldn’t be stopped offensively by the Swiss National Team in the third game of day two, as they put up at least one run every time they came to bat in a 12-2 victory. Switzerland struck first in the top of the first, when Livio Bundi began the game with a double and later came around to score on Michael Diaz’s ground out. In the bottom of the first with the bases loaded, Landislaus Landwehr squeeze bunted in Merlin Bendlin and then Max Eckerman hit an RBI single (2-1).

The Swiss tied the game back up at two thanks to Dominic Scheffler scoring on a German error. From there, the game was all Paderborn, and a five-run bottom of the sixth inning completed a victory by 10-run rule. Despite allowing the two runs early (one of which was earned), Paderborn’s Patrick Harrison controlled the Swiss offense from the mound. He went four complete, allowing two hits and a walk, while striking out eight for the win. Offensively, Luca Rammelmann and Florian Herwig paced the team with two RBIs each. Bendlin scored a game-high four runs, while going 2-for-3 and Eckerman was a perfect 3-for-3.

On the other side, Bundi’s double represented the Swiss’s only extra-base hit in the game, while Diaz recorded the team’s only RBI. Paderborn leads off the day tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. against Netherlands United with the hopes of taking a commanding lead in the tournament at 3-0. Switzerland will vie for its first win of the tournament against the North State Warriors at 11:30 a.m. local time Stuttgart.
