Brisbane starter Ryan Bollinger tossed a complete game shutout as the Bandits took down Adelaide in game one of their series at Adelaide Shores on Friday night.

The left-hander was dominant as Brisbane recorded its 11th win of the season with an 8-0 victory over the last-placed Bite.

Bollinger struck out 12 Adelaide hitters, allowing three hits and not issuing a walk as the Bite failed to score for the third time in nine home games this season.

A three-run homer by Donald Lutz in the third gave Bollinger and the Bandits a lead.

Adelaide starter Chris Powell issued a two-out walk to Adam Weisenburger and Andrew Campbell doubled before Lutz completed the punishment with a shot to right field.

Powell lasted 6.2 innings, giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits while striking out nine.

Brisbane added two runs in the seventh to end his night and piled on further pain in the late stages.

T.J. Bennett's RBI-single in the eighth extended the lead to 6-0 and Campbell went deep with a two-run bomb in the top of the ninth.

Bite reliever Chris Horne gave up three runs on five hits in two innings.

The Bandits improved their record to 11-4 with the victory.

Adelaide sits last in the ABL with a 3-14 win-loss ratio.

The series continues with a doubleheader on Saturday, starting at 4pm local time.
