Australian Baseball League 2016-2017: Jeremy Guthrie hit hard


Today, Jeremy Guthrie debuted with the Melbourne Aces. Guthrie must have dreamt of a better debut as he was hit hard and lasted only four innings in which he gave up six runs to the Sydney BlueSox.

With a lot of uproar, the Melbourne Aces announced that they had attracted Jeremy Guthrie for the second half of the ABL season. Without having thrown a pitch, Guthrie received an invitation to the World All Stars roster in the ABL All Star Game.
But Guthrie’s debut was far from stellar. In four innings he gave up six runs (two earned) on six hits, walked one and struck out one.
The Sydney BlueSox jumped on him in the first inning already. Three doubles and a single drove in three runs for the BlueSox. Three innings later Sydney added three more runs to their total thanks to a throwing error, a double and a single.
All the Aces could do was scoring a run in the second and one in the seventh. Sydney added three more (two in the fifth and one in the sixth) for the 9-2 victory. Thanks to this win they BlueSox tied the series at one.

After Loek van Mil earned a two inning save yesterday vs the Brisbane Bandits, he saved the day for the Bite again, even though he did not record another save. Leading 13-8 in the bottom of the ninth, Christopher Horne entered the game and gave up two runs while recording only one out. As Horne couldn’t get out of the inning, he was replaced by Loek van Mil, who gave up a hit but still recorded the final two outs for Adelaide.
At bat, Bandits’ Donald Lutz had a good day as he went 2 for 5 with a double, and a run scored after going 1 for 4 in the previous game.
In the meantime Bas Nooij has been reassigned, so he is not on the active roster of the Bite anymore.

After the Canberra Cavalry fell 8-3 to the Perth Heat yesterday, they restored the order by winning a close one today. The game was tied at three for a very long time as both teams scored three runs in the first inning.
Eventually the Cavalry scored the winning run in the seventh inning. Robbie Perkins hit a one out double to left field, followed by another double, hit by Aaron Sayers that allowed Perkins to score the go-ahead run.
Louis Cohen pitched seven innings for the win. He gave up three runs (none earned) on four hits, walked three and struck out five.
Aaron Sayers was the best hitter for the Cavalry as he went 3 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI.
