The Parramatta Giants topped the South Sydney Rabbitohs, 8-6, with third baseman Fred Mottershead playing a big role. Mottershead was 2 for 3 with a home run, a double, and was hit by a pitch. He drove in 4 runs and scored once for the Giants in the win. Sam Tuxford converted his 9th save in 11 tries. The Giants move to 25-30 with the win, while the Rabbitohs drop to 26-29.

Mottershead had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the seventh. On a 1-0 fastball from Dannie Beacher, he banged a 3-run home run to right, giving the Giants a 8-6 lead. It was the 2nd home run of the year for Mottershead.

"We'll relax tonight and enjoy this win," said Mottershead.
