A MIX of strong offense and defense was a feature of the Bendigo Baseball Association’s junior Friday night competition last week.
In the T-Ball match, Strawberries clashed with Oranges.
Maddie, Josh, Mason and Darcy all hit safely for Strawberries at the top of the first innings, while in the bottom of the innings Lilly, Nathan, Jimmy, Will and Hayden scored hits for Oranges.
The second innings featured Jeff, Tahlia, Leander and Axel hitting safely for Strawberries, and Owen, Ted, Logan and Hagan all swung hot bats for Oranges.
Meanwhile, the under-13 game was an entertaining contest between Feds and Rebels, with pitching from both sides proving difficult to hit.
The ultimate difference in the game was decided in the batting box. Feds only managed to get five scattered hits for the game, while in an even team effort Rebels had 10 hitters who all recorded one safe hit each as they were able to score regularly throughout the match.
