Sydney starter Clayton Freimuth carried a no-hitter into the sixth and the Blue Sox bats got hot in an 8-2 win over Canberra on Saturday night.

Freimuth did not allow a hit until Boss Moanaroa singled in the top of the sixth as Sydney snapped a two-game losing streak at MIT Narrabundah Ballpark.

The left-hander finished up allowing one run on two hits while striking out three batters in 6.2 dominant innings on the mound

With Freimuth firing, Sydney's bats eventually followed.

Trent D'Antonio broke a scoreless tie with a solo home run in the fifth and the Blue Sox added five runs an inning later.

Chih-hsien Chiang homered and a run scored on a bases-loaded walk before Alex Howe tripled to clear them to give Sydney a six-run buffer.

The Cavs got two of their own, including one on a solo shot by Moanaroa, in the eighth but saw the Sox get them back in the ninth as Chiang hit a second home run.

D'Antonio led Sydney's offence, going 4-for-5.

Earlier, Canberra starter Steven Kent worked out a jam in the third.

Kent gave up singles to Howe and D'Antonio before walking Michael Suchy, but escaped without harm as Chiang flied out to centrefield.

He lasted 5.1 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits while punching out six.

The Blue Sox can split the series when it moves to Wollongong for the second annual Wollongong Classic tomorrow, live on ABLtv.com from 2pm AEDT.
