After losing the first 3 game of the season mostly due to defensive lapses MLR team has progressed steadily over the last 2 weeks picking up 3 wins in 3 games. The latest team to succumb to VOB were the Maitland Giants.
The game started with Lee van Wyk on the mound. Lee kept it simple and ended the inning in just 8 pitches while keeping the Giants scoreless. VOB responded scoring 3 runs to take a 3-0 lead. In the 2nd inning, van Wyk tried to do a bit too much and put a few runners on base allowing giants to pull 3 runs back tying the scores. VOB hit back with 4 more runs taking a 7-3 lead into the 3rd.
Giants managed to scrape 3 more runs in the next 2 innings before Jason Ranck came on to shut them out in the final 2 innings. VOB accumulated 6 more runs in their last few inning for a convincing 13-6 win.
