Tigers Lose to Giants in Walk Off
The Parramatta Giants picked up a win at Paramatta Fields, knocking off the Balmain Tigers, 4-2. Starting pitcher Michael Halfacre, who captured player of the game honors, was a big reason why. Parramatta reliever Sam Tuxford picked up the win, upping his record to 1-0. Alan Theyer was saddled with the loss. The Tigers drop to 10-13 and continue their inconsistent start to the 1985 season.

Tony Hotham was the walk-off hero for Parramatta. With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Giants right fielder hit a dramatic 2-run home run to send the teams home.

"I liked his command," said Parramatta manager Derek Stringer. "Michael was throwing strikes."
