The Sharks fought heat, Bats and other things. In the end, they came up empty.
Playing at Karlskoga is not an easy task. With scorching heat and a skeleton crew it’s even harder.
Behind the battling starter, ”El Gallo Negro” José Martínez, the Sharks were on the verge of taking the first game. In a back and forth game, Gothenburg was up two runs in the bottom of the 7th but the Bats walked off with a score of 10-9.
The heat got to the Sharks as they looked like Sharks would on land. Still, a stellar start from Erik Earnest in game 2 had them believing before this one got away from them.
Final score of the second game was 10-4 in favor of Karlskoga.
