Tigers Slip Past St. George, 3-2
A 3-RBI performance from Matthew Whitlow, the 4th overall pick in the 1980 draft, helped the Balmain Tigers beat the St. George Dragons, 3-2. Balmain is off to a sluggish start, getting just their 5th win in 14 games.

Whitlow had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the tenth. On a first pitch fastball from Rafaello Nesta, he banged a solo home run to right, giving the Tigers a 3-2 lead. It was the 5th home run of the year for Whitlow.

"We take it day by day here," said Whitlow, "and today was a good one for us."
