The Cronulla Sharks picked up a win at Leichhardt Oval, knocking off the Balmain Tigers, 3-1. Starting pitcher Michael Musselwhite played a key role in the triumph. In 7 innings, Musselwhite surrendered 5 hits, while striking out 3 and walking 1. He allowed 1 run. Justin Kennerley converted his 14th save in 17 tries.

The Sharks got a big at-bat from third baseman Jermaine Povey. For the game, Povey was 1-5 with a double. In the top of the first, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring double. His 15th double of the season gave Cronulla a 1-0 lead.

"I tell our guys all the time, 'Every pitch is the right pitch if you put it in the right place, you believe in it and have conviction,'" Cronulla manager Matthew Carlisle said.

The win boosts the Sharks to 32-41. The loss puts the Tigers at 30-43.
