Giants Subdue Canterbury, 5-3
Starting pitcher Michael Halfacre pitched well enough to help the Parramatta Giants beat the Canterbury Bulldogs by the score of 5-3. Halfacre, now 8-5, was the winner. In 7 innings, he gave up 4 hits, while striking out 4, walking 2, and allowing 1 earned run. Sam Tuxford notched his 23rd save in 27 chances.

Parramatta used the bat of Steve Turvill to get the win. The center fielder hammered a grand slam home run in the top of the sixth inning to put the Giants ahead, 5-1. It was his lone hit in 5 at-bats, but it did its damage.

"Throwing strikes was the main thing," Halfacre said.

The first-place Giants, at 51-39, now lead their division by 2 games.
