Uviedo Wins, Gimenez Homers


AUSTRALIAN LEAGUE
Adelaide Bite  6,  Melbourne Aces  3  —  
Paul Mildren made the start for the Aces, pitching 6.1 innings, and allowing 6 hits with 6 strikeouts.  His own throwing error after a double gave the Aces their first run in the 2nd inning.  The Bite came right back to tie the score at 1-1 in the top of the 3rd, with a run on a walk, a single, and an RBI ground out.  Mildren gave up only two singles and a walk over the next 4 innings, and one of those base runners was thrown out trying to steal second base.  But Mildren was tiring in the 7th, and the inning began with a single and a double, then a ground out.  Mildren was relieved, but both base runners scored on a single given up by the reliever, and Mildren was responsible for those runs.  His teammates bailed him out by scoring 4 runs in the top of the 8th (two doubles, a single, three walks, and two errors) and one more in the 9th (double and single), as the Bite pulled out the win.  Quincy Latimore did not get into this game.

Canberra Cavalry  9,  Brisbane Bandits  7 —  Rinku Singh had one good inning and one wild inning in this game.  He came into the game for the Cavalry in the top of the 5th, with the Bandits leading 5-1, and he retired the side in order.  Then in the bottom of the 5th, the Cavalry rallied for 3 runs, on three singles and a double, plus an RBI ground out, pushing the score to 5-4.  Singh came back out to begin the 6th, but walked the first batter, then made a fielding error on a bunt.  Two more walks forced in a run, and Singh was relieved.  The Cavalry inched closer with a run in the bottom of the 7th, but Brisbane got the run right back in the top of the 8th.  Then in the bottom of the 8th, the Cavalry charged again, scoring 4 runs on two singles, a walk, and a grand slam, to take the lead and the win.
