Jesse Williams had a five-RBI night and Perth extended its ABL winning streak to five games with a 17-10 victory over Adelaide on Friday night.

Starter Kyle Simon carried a no-hitter into the fifth and the Heat's offence proved almost unstoppable for the last-ranked Bite at Adelaide Shores.

The Heat racked up 19 hits, including five home runs, as they improved to 17-8 on the season.

Alex Hall homered twice and Williams, Jake Fraley and Matt Dixon all went deep in the rout.

Adelaide's bullpen gave up 14 runs - including seven in the eighth - as the Bite slumped to their 20th loss in 26 games this season.

Perth got to Adelaide starter Ryo Koura, scoring three runs on eight hits against the Japanese right-hander.

Fraley's eighth home run of the season guided the Heat to a 3-0 lead in the fourth.

Williams' two-run double in the fifth extended the lead to six runs.

Chen Kuan-Jen gave the Bite a glimmer of hope in the sixth with a three-run homer to right centre field.

But Hall's first homer of the game in the seventh and a seven-run eighth broke the game wide open.

Scott Mitchinson replaced Simon, who allowed three runs on four hits across six innings, in the seventh and was taken deep by Chen and Bas Nooij as part of a five-run Adelaide inning.

Homers to Hall and Dixon in the ninth pushed the lead back out to 17-8 in favour of the visitors.

Jordan McArdle's two-run blast in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Bite to a season-high 10 runs.

The series continues at 7pm local time on Saturday.
