With import Ballarat import Rob Shaw keen to stamp his authority on Summer League Baseball – and with the Ballarat City Club anxious to improve on a very creditable last season at this level – the drumming of rain on dugouts just minutes before game time put a literal dampener on the start of the summer baseball campaign.

The umpiring decision to not take the field in early drizzle was vindicated as rain became heavier and more persistent after the call had been made to abandon the contest – which under current match conditions will not be rescheduled.

Led by the sterling starting pitching of Werribee’s Trent Evins, the Giants opened up their summer campaign with a 7-2 road victory over the Williamstown Wolves.


In five innings of work, Evins walked four but surrendered only two hits while striking out three. Entering in the sixth, Josh Lee finished the game, fanning five and ceding just two runs on four hits. Lee wasn’t too shabby at the plate, either, slugging a triple and knocking in three.


Behind the plate, Oliver Box did yeoman’s work and also contributed two singles in three at-bats.


Next week the Giants attempt to continue their winning ways on the road at Upwey while the Wolves hit the road seeking their first win at Berwick.
