This is a four-team tournament, and every team plays each other twice. The top two teams will play for the championship at the end of group play.

Guggenberger Legionare (Germany) 6, Eagles Praha (Czech Republic) 0

Guggenbereger Legionare right fielder Joyce Terrel hit a two-run home run to open up the scoring against Eagles Praha in the fourth at Baseballovy areal Eagles Praha. This was all the offense needed, as the Legionare pitching staff was lights out.

Eagles Praha tried to piece it together using five pitchers, but two of them weren’t effective. Reliever Emmnaul Herrera surrendered the home run to Terrell. The game remained 2-0 until the ninth inning when Guggenberger Legionare put up four more runs.

Matyas Trcka came in to pitch the ninth and was wild. One run came in on a wild pitch, and two others scored from passed balls by catcher Lukas Derganz. Center fielder Devon Beaver Ramirez drove in the fourth run of the inning with an RBI single.

Kieran Lovegrove started the game for Guggenberger Legionare and pitched four shutout innings with seven strikeouts—three relievers combined with Lovegrove to preserve the shutout.

Guggenberger Legionare is 2-1, and Eagles Praha are 0-3 in the Baseball European Championship Cup.
