Regionals split series in Malmö

Three years without a victory.
Göteborg B finally got back in the win column.
“This feels really good”, says Coleman Lukas.

The regional team season opener was a treat to watch. Malmö Pilots swung the bat well early in the first game. Despite Mikael Lindquist great pitching, Hajarna found themselves down 0-3. Josef Hussein came on in relief and threw two shutout innings but Hajarna could only muster one run offensively. That would soon change.

“Warm water in Malmö allowed Hajarna to go on a feeding frenzy”, says Jason Norderum, special assistant to the GM and executive advisor to the travel coordinator.

Göteborg got on the board early in the second game and Josef Hussein, now starting, threw a gem. Hussein tossed five no hit innings and seven total shutout innings.

Offensively, the runs kept coming for Hajarna. Solid hitting all through the game and the regionals first win in three years was a fact. The Pilots got two runs in the 7th but Hajarna took the game 12-2.

“Organizationally we improved throughout the whole weekend. And we’re obviously happy to have the regional team win for the first time in three years”, says Head Coach Coleman Lukas.
