A hard fought close game this week against the Blacktown side resulted in loss to the Sharks by 3 runs to 2. Strong pitching meant there were only 3 hits to the Sharks and 4 to Blacktown in all, Blacktown jumped out to an early two nil lead after the first innings and when they added another run in the 4th they led by 3 runs to nil.
The Sharks fought back strongly in the last and pulled back two runs to have runners on the bases at the end but couldn't convert them into at least plating a tying run.
The three hits tonight were shared by Blake Cavill, Ethan Stacey (welcome back E) and Jackson Mannix.
RBI to Blake Cavill. Walks to Alex Brook, Josh Dean and Blake Cavill with two each.
Another strong pitching performance from Darcy Edwards with 3.1 innings and 4K's. Brett Elliot also came on and threw well with 3K's
This loss drops us down to third on the table but we have another chance against Blacktown on the weekend at Laybutt Reserve.
