PERTH - Huge news out West as the Heat once again become the #HappyHeaters as they break through for their first series win since November of 2015.
In a weekend of emotion, the Heat one the concluding game in extra innings! The International Tie-Breaker came into play in the 11th inning. Your final score: Perth Heat 7 Sydney Blue Sox 6.
The game was set up with a good earlier outing by Nick Veale. As you'd know reading the game notes, that first inning is a killer for the Heat this season and Veale as small as it seemed averted trouble earlier.
The offence all pitched in with RBI's to Wong, Peterson, Hughes, T Kennelly, Riley & Bojarski. A vintage Tim Kennelly was the pick of the hitters going 3-5, improving his season average to .325.
The arms were solid . Nick Veale pieced together a good start, he seems to be well placed to throw 5 innings. It will be interesting to see if that's the game plan in Adelaide. Justin D'Alesandro was a real asset, came in on a bases loaded 0 outs jam and got a way with minimal damage.
Warwick Saupold mowed through 2 batters, unfortunately gave up a 2 run shot top of the 9th with the Heat set to win it, but overall keeps impressing. Cameron Lamb chimed in for a solid inning and Jake Bowey was outstanding.
