Bulldogs Bang Out 7-5 Win Versus Western Suburbs
Western Suburbs right fielder Tristan Sandbach had a terrific game, but it still wasn't enough to get his team a win. Sandbach went 4-4 with a double, 3 singles, and a walk, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once, even as Canterbury beat the Magpies, 7-5. Sandbach was named the player of the game despite the loss. David Heighway got credit for the save for Canterbury. It was his 15th of the year. The Bulldogs bumped their record to 24-21 with this latest triumph.

The Bulldogs got a big at-bat from pitcher Ben O'Connell. For the game, O'Connell threw 4 innings allowing 5 runs. In the bottom of the fourth, with the bases loaded, he stroked a 2-run double. His 1st double of the season gave Canterbury a 5-4 lead.

"Winning the game is always the first objective," O'Connell said.
