What to watch in round three
11/29/2017 8:28 PM ET

Adelaide and Canberra clash tonight to get round three Australian Baseball League action underway.

ABLtv.com will bring you five live games across the round, including a rematch of last season's Championship Series between Melbourne and Brisbane.

The remaining games will have audio broadcasts while the Baseball Live app is your one-stop spot for all ABL content, with live scoring, results, streams, highlights and the latest league news.

Here is some of what you have to look forward to during round three:

TONIGHT

Canberra @ Adelaide, 7.30pm AEDT

The Bite and Cavs enter the round in the bottom two spots on the ladder and need wins to stay on the heels of the top four. Canberra took three of four against Sydney last weekend while Adelaide fell to successive series defeats to start the season against Melbourne. The Cavs head to Adelaide without Boss Moanaroa and will need a strong performance from their pitching. Brian Grening will start game one for Canberra against Bite right-hander Chris Powell. Will Adelaide's offence find some form or will the Cavs' momentum continue to build?

 FRIDAY NIGHT

Brisbane @ Melbourne, 7.00pm AEDT

In February, the Bandits denied the Aces Claxton Shield success in the ABL Championship Series. Now, nine months on, the teams meet again at Melbourne Ballpark. Brisbane has started the season hot and look in January form in November. The Bandits' offence scored 47 runs in a 3-1 series victory over Perth in round two and their pitching has been solid, especially starter Tim Atherton. Melbourne will look to build on its first series win in Adelaide. The Aces kept the Bite to 12 runs after struggling to silence Perth's bats on Opening Weekend.

 SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Perth @ Sydney, 12.00pm AEDT

The Blue Sox and Heat have made positive strides as they chase a return to the postseason. Sydney is off to a 5-3 start and Perth sits at .500 after navigating a daunting opening fortnight against last season's best two teams, Brisbane and Melbourne. A series win for either team here would put them in a great position after three rounds. The Heat will start Tom Bailey and the Blue Sox turn to Luke Wilkins.
