Lithuanian National team finished in 5th place
2013 07 27

Yesterday, in the last game of the European Group B-Level Championship in Vienna (Austria), Lithuania lost to the home team Austria 2-3.

Even before the game, Lithuania had a guaranteed 5th place, and in case of winning could not move up anymore. Austria guaranteed themselves first place after the win and the home team advantage in the final. In case of Lithuania winning, Russia and Belarus would have played in the final. Today in the final, Russia beat Austria 3-2 after an intense game and came back among the 12 best European teams. By the way, in the 9th inning with 2 outs Austria was winning 2-1 and practically had the win in their hands, but the center fielder made a clumsy error dropping the fly ball (which would have been the last out and Austria's win) and letting Russia tie the game. Later Russia scored again and defended successfully.

We really cannot say that Lithuania's performance in the Championship was good. All 6 teams that participated were alike capability wise and finished higher because of better preparation, cold-blood, and luck.

Lithuanian national team made the most errors of all the teams - 16 times, and that is averaging 3 times more errors per game. Defense was the weakest part of the performance, because among the pitchers Lithuania was 3rd, among hitters - 4th.

Among the top 10 pitchers with the best ERA (Earned Run Average) was Aivaras Jacyna (6th) and Eimantas Žičkus (7). Most strikeouts (12 each) - Edvardas Matusevičius (over 7 innings), Eimantas Žičkus (9,2), and the pitcher from Ireland (9,2). Unfortunately, the pitcher Dovydas Neverauskas could not participate in the Championship because he is playing in the United States.

Among the top 10 hitters with the best BA (Batting Average) was Klaidas Stravinskas (8 - 0,444), and Marius Tatarūnas (18. - 0,350). Also we could mention successfully making it to the bases, Marijus Dargis, and Kęstas Vilimas. These four hitting leaders did not make any errors on defense. Unfortunately, their teammates were not as ready for the Championship as them.
