Rick Wills, our on the spot reporter, sent in the following update:
“The Australian Senior League team maintained their unbeaten run with a fighting 2-1 win over Guam today in the Asia Pacific Senior League tournament.The Victorian team gave up 1 run in the first innings then scored in the top half of the second innings.
The Victorian team gave up 1 run in the first innings then scored in the top half of the second innings.
The game was played in extremely humid conditions and a temperature of 33 degrees at 10.00am.
Josh Meyer was superb on the mound stifling many challenges Guam threw at the Australian team. Josh fought through 6 innings and handed the ball over to Jordan Barnett to close out the game.
Routine outs for the first and second outs before Guam mounted another challenge and loaded the bases. A soft fly ball over Barnett’s head forced him to lay out diving backwards and take the final out for the game in a spectacular finish.
Both teams played uncompromising baseball and may meet again in the final.
The Australian team will enjoy a well-earned rest tomorrow and look to be fresh for the final on Saturday where the victorious team will be ensured of a place at the Senior League World Series.”
Good Luck in the final on Saturday!
