Utility Wade Dutton hit a grand slam to send Brisbane to a 15-12 extra-innings walk-off win over Sydney on Sunday.

With the bases loaded Dutton delivered with his second home run of the game as the Bandits notched their seventh-straight win to start the season at Holloway Field.

Mitch Nilsson sent the contest to extras with a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth as Brisbane pulled off a miraculous comeback.

The Bandits improved their record to 10-4 with the win and sit atop the standings after four rounds following the sweep.

Earlier, Michael Suchy hit a two-run bomb to tie the ballgame at 7-7 ahead of Alex Howe and Max Brennen driving in runs to build a three-run lead.

Sydney struck first on Connor MacDonald's two-run homer in the second and regained the lead three more times in a see-sawing battle.

MacDonald put the Sox ahead for the second time with a two-run single in the fifth, before a seventh-inning burst.

But Brisbane did not roll over.                                                          

T.J. Bennett homered after Lin Chih-sheng's one-out single to cut the lead to one run.

The Bandits took a 4-2 lead on back-to-back homers by Wade Dutton and David Sutherland in the fourth.

Sutherland's second of the game - a three-run effort - put Brisbane on top in the sixth.

The Bandits finished with six home runs for the game and 16 for the series.
