Werribee 11 vs Ballarat 10
On a hot summer day in Ballarat a barnburner broke out.
Werribee took the lead first, tallying thrice in the second. After the Giants plated another one in the top of the fourth, the Brewers struck back for four of their own. Another single tally by the Giants in the fifth was immediately answered by three more for the home side.
After both sides traded single markers the big blow came in the top of the eighth when the Giants scored four. Ballarat tied it with two in their home half but a single run in the top of the ninth proved crucial for Werribee.
Ceding only two unearned runs, Josh Lee started before being relieved by Connor Wilson. John Curnow then threw the sixth, seventh and eighth before Trent Evins closed out the impressive victory with a spotless ninth.
At the plate, winning pitcher Curnow also starred, going 3-4 with two doubles and two knocked in.
