All Stars con­tinue early winning run

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - SPORT -

THE Coffs All Stars have main­tained their un­beaten start to the year af­ter down­ing the hard-hit­ting Blue Sox 5-4 in a come-from-be­hind win.

Blue Sox dom­i­nated the Stars for the ma­jor­ity of the match with pitch­ers Cody and Ai­den Banks giv­ing up just one hit be­tween them.

The Blue Sox bat­ting line-up was also in form.

Ai­den Banks drove several hits to the out­field and Jor­dan Par­sons, in his A Grade de­but, col­lected two hits for the game, in­clud­ing one off the first ball faced.

But field­ing er­rors and walks were enough to keep the All Stars in the game, along with the pitch­ing of Derek Jor­dan.

In the end a Bill Lan­gler ground out was enough to send the winning run home in the bot­tom of the fourth inning.

In Satur­day’s match-up, Dodgers proved too strong for Brew­ers col­lect­ing an 18-7 win.

The Dodgers got off to a hot start with Brew­ers’ pitcher Juaques Kruger fac­ing down 15 bat­ters in that first inning.

Brew­ers staged a fight­back in the third inning, get­ting seven bat­ters across the home plate, but it was too late to reel in the Dodgers by that point of the match.

The Dodgers were well served by Scott McLean who col­lected three hits and An­drew Mainey who pitched two score­less in­nings, giv­ing up just one hit in the process.

For Brew­ers, Hunter BakeSmith was strong with two hits and Matt Ersk­ine per­formed well in his sole in­nings of pitch­ing.
