French Division I Baseball Week 4 – News

0

In the first of three ‘reserve weeks’, when previously postponed games are played, Metz was finally able to start their season, traveling to Montigny to face the Cougars, who were tied at the top of Pool A. Cometz were rudely awakened by the hosts, as Yorfrank López struck out a season-high Division I 17 batters on a two-hit shutout in Game 1, while Robinsón Maestre was aces in the last drink.

Summary
The opener was all López, who prompted a pop-up to start play before striking out the next eight batters consecutively. After losing his perfect game on a Rodríguez single, the Cougars ace allowed just one more hit and a trio of free passes the rest of the game. Meanwhile, a two-run single from Jaspe in the first and another from Fagnoni in the fifth, was all the López (2-0) needed. Each had two hits for the game.

The Cometz held a 2-0 lead when Montigny came to bat late in the fourth in Game 2, but the lead quickly evaporated as the hosts racked up eight runs, six of which were unearned. Fagnoni netted a two-run brace in the frame, heading home on a Jaspe single. Each again had a pair of hits.

Maestre (2-1) struck out 10 runs in just five innings, allowing two unearned runs on two hits and one walk. Trevor Rogers was excellent in relief for Metz, shooting four shutout innings to end the game.
