Day 3

In a tight match, the Victorian men couldn’t get the bats going in their 2-0 defeat against NSW. Connor Cole pitched a brilliant game, only allowing one run in the second and seventh.

Hayden Gillett and Cody Smith continued to be strong contributors at the plate.

Connor Cole’s pitching performance was the highlight for the Vic’s, only allowing 3 hits for the game.

Cody Smith and Hayden Gillett contributed at the plate with a hit each in the game.

Their second game at 9:15 against Queensland concluded with the final score reading at 5-3.

It was another solid game in the field, with consistent batting from Hayden Gillett getting Victoria back within reach, but it wasn’t enough to grasp the win.
