Bats Sweep Sharks in Regional Doubleheader

The Karlskoga Bats, 2012 Elite Series champs, swept the Sharks’ regional team Saturday, 13-3 and 6-0. The Sharks where within striking distance coming into the sixth inning of game two, trailing just 2-0, but the Bats mounted a four-run, two-out rally to put the game away.

Newcomer Jack Warwick from Australia was impressive in his debut for the Sharks both at the plate and on the mound, blasting a towering three-run homer to left-center in game one and limited an explosive Bats lineup to just one run in three innings in starting game two.

Outhit and outpitched in Karlskoga, the Sharks are nonetheless optimistic about continuing their winning ways in Tranås next Sunday.
