CARDS DIG HOLE AFTER DROPPING TWO TO THE MUSTANGS

21.04.2010
Roger Savoldelli and the Embrach Mustangs shocked the Swiss powerhouse  
Bern Cardinals on Sunday, winning both ends of the double header; 7-5,  
and 12-2. Savoldelli's complete game effort, working in and out of  
jams provided by sloppy defense, stole the show. Cards emergency  
starter Raphael Hanzi, also not supported so well by his defense,  
worked six solid innings for the Cardinals. Once again the Cards  
predicted high octane offense struggled to plate runners, allowing the  
Mustangs to hold onto its early adavantage, and take home the game one  
win.

Game two Tobias Imboden for the Cards, and Josh Crouse for the 'Stangs  
matched up on the hill. Imboden ran into early trouble, surrendering  
three runs in each of the first two innings, creating an early deficit  
his team could not come back from. Crouse on the other hand worked  
through some early control issues to finish what he started,  
completing the game allowing only two hits. The Mustangs celebrated  
their first ever sweep versus the Cards with a game two, 12-2 victory.

The Cards will travel to Zurich to take on the Challengers on Saturday.
