Croatian League week 7: soaring division wins two, streak reaches five – News
Two weekends at Starom Placu (Old Square) Field in Split seemed like just what the Adriatic club needed, as they suddenly hit a milestone in the 2021 Croatian Baseball League season. This week Zagreb hosted Hope (“Nada”) and were beaten by two unbalanced wins. Elsewhere, Medvednica had the difficult task of getting to table top Karlovac, who continued his relentless barrage in attack in both games.
Nada Split in Zagreb (13-1, 16-1)
Split hit the road after two invigorating weekends at home, heading to Zagreb. Hope gave the Croatian capital club a beating and toppling Zagreb 13-1 and 16-1. The pair of wins put Nada second in the Croatian Baseball League, just four games behind Karlovac. Meanwhile, Zagreb fell after a strong start, with seven straight losses.
Medvednica in Olimpija Karlovac (9-19, 4-16)
Medvednica was back in action after a fortnight’s layoff. Its last games were against Karlovac in Week 4, when the league leaders beat the Bears, 24-2, 13-1. Against this background, Olimpija’s patchy results actually show some improvement from Medvednica.
Karlovac, meanwhile, continues to wipe out competition in the Croatian Baseball League, with an average winning margin of 15-5. Including five non-league games, the leaders are 17-2 and have beaten their opponents 239-79 (in all 17 games with published scores). The 19 and 16 points posted last weekend represent 10 double-digit efforts in 12 known attempts.
Late results of week 6: Zagreb to Olimpija Karlovac
Although the scores are not available, Zagreb were unable to part ways with Karlovac as they did in the clubs’ first meeting as Olimpija swept the two-game set. Zagreb’s 11-9 win in Week 2 was, in fact, the last time the capital-based team entered the winning column.
