The Parramatta Giants finished things off in style today at Paramatta Fields.

With catcher Michael Whitlock leading the charge, the Parramatta Giants defeated the St. George Dragons, 6-4, at Paramatta Fields. Whitlock was 3-5 with a home run, 2 singles, and a walk, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once. The Giants bumped their record to 59-56 with this latest triumph.

Whitlock had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the 12th. On a full count curveball from Carl Harola, he banged a 2-run home run to left, giving the Giants a 6-4 lead. It was the 4th home run of the year for Whitlock.

"I'm just looking for a good pitch that I can hit well," said Whitlock. "And not try to do too much."
