German Playoffs to Game Five

The German playoffs will go to a game five with the Buchbinder Legionaere’s 3-1 win over the Solingen Alligators.  It was a pitcher’s duel between Buchbinder’s Justin Kuehn and the Alligators Nick Renault.  Buchbinder scored two in the eighth to take away the victory.  Two walks, a bunt single and a ground ball that got past the second baseman allowed the two go ahead runs to score.  The final game five will be played on Thursday.

Solingen had won a dramatic game four to take a 2-1 series lead, scoring three runs in the bottom of the ninth to steal the victory.  Dustin Hughes hit the 2-run walk off single.

Buchbinder has won the German championships for the last three years.  The Alligators last won a championship in 2006.
