Third wins for Czech Republic

Third day of the 39th year of Prague Baseball Week told us about the second finalist. Russia ensured its advance into the final after a win over Prague Selection 6:0. First finalist, Czech Republic, was clear after Thursday´s games.

Russian pitchers did not give much chances to Prague Selection players who had only one hit. On the other hand Russians were successful in the 2nd inning and also scored three times in the 3rd inning.

Evening game between Czech Republic and International Stars was not about the advance into the final, it was already clear that the defending champions would not fight for gold. Czech team was strengthened by more players: Jakub Hajtmar, Jakub Malik, Boris Bokaj, Petr Cech and Jan Novak. Marek Minarik, who played first two games in the outfield, was a starting pitcher. Martin Cervenka went back to his catcher position. “I’m satisfied with my performance. I like pitching to Martin, I do not have to think about what to pitch, I just do what he says,” described Minarik successful cooperation from EURO 2019 and Olympic games qualification.

International Starts scored right at the beginning of the game but Czech players responded and found their way against lefty pitcher Ryan Johnson. “At the beginning I did not play what I should but I was fine. It was my fault, if I had played better, they would have not scored,” said Minarik about the 1st inning. Ryan Johnson took part in homerun derby and won it just hour before the game and still pitched nearly 7 innings. His opponent from homerun derby Marek Chlup hit homerun also in this game and added 3 RBI into his statistics. The score was 8:1 after that and even though International Stars scored couple times, final result was 8:4 for the Czech national team. Losing team will play against Czech Republic U18 on Saturday. Final game between Czech Republic and Russia starts at 18:00.
