Brisbane maintained its perfect home record, finishing fast to down last-placed Adelaide at Holloway Field on Friday night.

The Bandits outlasted Bite starter Greg Mosel and added plenty of late runs to pick up an 11-3 win and improve their record to 8-0 at home this season.

Brisbane took until the bottom of the fifth to hold its first lead, hitting the front on a sacrifice fly by import Lin Chih-sheng.

T.J. Bennett's sixth home run of the season and a three-run blast by Adam Weisenburger made it 7-2 in the sixth.

The Bandits fell behind twice on homers by Angus Roeger and Rodrigo Ayarza.

Roeger opened the scoring with a lead-off homer - his second of the season - against Brisbane starter Pat Young in the second.

Young made a shaky start, walking five in four innings but allowing just the one hit to Roeger.

Ayarza restored Adelaide's lead with his fourth home run of the season after Lin scored on a groundball by Wade Dutton.

After putting up a six-run sixth to take a 9-2 lead, the Bandits extended their lead in the seventh on Andrew Campbell's two-run home run to right field.

Jordan McArdle hit a late solo homer for the visitors.

Brisbane reliever Zac Treece punched out five in two innings and Rhys Niit fanned the side in his only inning.

Mosel worked five innings for the Bite, allowing three runs on four hits and striking out six.

The series continues with a doubleheader on Saturday.
