The Regensburg Legionäre IV wasted a three-hit game by David Keilhauer in losing 15-8 at Munich Caribes to drop their record to 1-2 in the Bezirksliga-Südost.

Keilhauer went 3-4 with four runs scored while Travis Gaug had two extra-base hits and three RBIs and Bobby Flynn went 2-2 with 2 RBIs to lead Regensburg’s 11-hit attack.

Unfortunately, the Legionäre IV’s American pitching duo of Gaug and Adam Lederway struggled to get Caribes hitters out, despite a solid Regensburg defense.

Regensburg loaded the bases in the top of the first but Benedict Ott struck out to end the inning without a run for the guests.

Gaug walked the first four Munich batters in the bottom of the first and then gave up a two-run single for a 3-0 lead. But Regensburg got out of the rest of the inning unscathed.

In the second, Flynn singled to cut the deficit to 3-2 but David Hein struck out swinging with the bases loaded to end the rally.

Gaug gave up five hits in the second inning, including a bases-clearing triple as Munich pushed the lead to 7-2 with four runs.

Regensburg began to be more aggressive on the base paths and picked up another two runs in the third with two hits to cut the margin to 7-4.

Legionäre IV finally kept Caribes scoreless in an inning, allowing just one hit. And Flynn’s RBI single in the top of the fourth trimmed the gap to 7-5.

With Lederway on the mound now, Munich scored once in the bottom of fourth to make it 8-5 – a run which Regensburg got back in the top of the fifth on Gaug’s RBI triple to make it 8-6.

The Caribes however scored three runs on two hits and three walks for an 11-6 advantage after five innings.

Regensburg went down 1-2-3 in the top of the sixth and Munich added four more runs in the bottom of the frame with six hits for a 15-6 lead.

With two outs in the seventh, Keilhauer and Lederway singled before Gaug drove them both in on a double. But it was not enough in the 15-8 loss.

Regensburg have a chance to even their record on June 2 at Erding Mallards.
