Late Rally by Bulldogs Secures Win
The Canterbury Bulldogs took East Sydney pitcher Cato Thirlwell's best shot and still were able to claim a win at Centennial Park. The final score had Canterbury getting past the Roosters, 6-2. Thirlwell went 7 innings and allowed 1 earned run, striking out 2. John Toshack, the winner, improved to 7-3. He held the Roosters to 2 earned runs on 6 hits over 7 innings, while striking out 6 and walking 1. Canterbury goes to 35-26. The win puts them 2 games up in their division.

Had Sinbad Hooks not delivered a key base hit in the top of the eighth, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and runners on 1st and 2nd, Hooks hit a 3-run home run. That made the score 4-2, in favor of the Bulldogs.

"I'm not out there for personal accomplishments," Hooks told a Canterbury Observer reporter after the game. "I'm out there to help the team win, and that's what we did today."
