MELBOURNE, 18 January - The Jet Couriers Melbourne Aces kept their hot streak alive on Friday night, coming away with a commanding 8-2 victory over the Adelaide Bite.

Kevin Reese picked up his second straight win at home, throwing seven strong innings, striking out seven in the process.

It was another strong outing for the Aces bats, who put together eleven hits, highlighted by a Carlo Testa home run and a two-run double from Scott Wearne.

Wearne came into the game in the sixth inning, and wasted no time settling in when he ripped a double down the alley in right field, scoring Harman and Testa, in the process giving the Aces a lead they would never relinquish.

Speaking after the game Phil Dale confirmed that Justin Huber is likely to miss the rest of the series.

"He's got a slight hamstring problem, he probably won't play for the rest of this series and he'll be questionable coming in to next week."

The Aces added to their two-run buffer in the seventh with Testa hitting his sixth home run of the campaign.

Liam Bedford finished off the scoring in the 8th with a single to left, which scored James Beresford.

Kable Hogben and Zach Arneson continued the red hot form of the Aces bullpen combining for two innings, striking out five of eight batters faced.

The series continues at 5.05pm on Saturday where the Aces will look to take their second straight home series.
