The first-place Parramatta Giants welcomed St. George to Paramatta Fields.

The Parramatta Giants relied on the hitting of right fielder Tony Hotham to stop the St. George Dragons, 9-5. For the game, Hotham was 3 for 4 with 2 home runs and a double. He drove in 4 runs and scored twice. Tristian Shepherd, the winner, improved to 10-5. He held St. George to 1 earned run on 4 hits over 5 innings, while racking up 6 strikeouts.

Though it wasn't a flawless game -- few are -- the fans who filled the stands at Paramatta Fields seemed to enjoy watching the Sydney Baseball Championship action.

"It feels good to get this one," Hotham told the Parramatta News.

The Giants bumped their record to 53-44 with this latest triumph.
