In a complete team effort, the Sharks won two games against the Malmö Pilots taking their win streak to three games before the much anticipated trip to Karlskoga.
In the first game, the battery of José Martinez and Toofan Khazal dominated the Malmö Pilots for a long time. After giving up a hit to the first batter of the game, Martinez gave nothing away as he held the Pirates scoreless through five and only giving up two or three hits.
The solid game calling and catching from veteran Khazal should not be overlooked as he was as stellar as ever as the backstop. Indeed, he would not be hard to include in an all-league kind of team.
The offense was hungry on this Sunday and never gave the Pilots a chance to breathe. The first game’s final score was 17-2.
In the second one the Sharks came back famished and put up eleven (!) runs in the first inning and never looked back. Behind pretty much the whole staff in what was a bullpen game, they took won game two 17-10.
A full recap will be posted when stats are provided digitally or when I come around to the decipher the score sheets.
