The Butchers Strike Back

16 year-old Rättvik player Adam Villamo is probably the fastest base runner Lund has faced this season. However, his amazing performance was overshadowed by an incredible performance of the veteran pitcher Magnus Höglund who seams better than ever on the mound. he gave away only 2 hits in 5 innings, struck out 4 of the best Lund players and didn't give a single walk or a single run. The defensive play of the day was made by the young Rättvik third baseman Kristoffer Sjöberg who made an incredible diving catch on a powerfull line-drive hit to his left by Brian Jordan in the 4th inning.

Magnus Höglund has been dominant as a pitcher. Takaaki Fujikawa has been much better at home than in Rättvik. DDarin O'Connor got 2 hits and scored twice as a DH.
