Victory Over Tigers Takes Western Suburbs to 11-3
With first baseman Brad Bowlby leading the charge, the Western Suburbs Magpies defeated the Balmain Tigers, 6-3, at Liverpool Fields. Bowlby, who was drafted in the 2nd round of the 1969 draft, was 3-4 with a home run and 2 singles. He scored 2 times. The winner was Western Suburbs reliever Michael Annear, now 2-0. The loser was Graeme Porter. Western Suburbs, now 11-3, is setting the league on fire so far.

Tangaroa Armstrong, who is tied for 9th in the SBC in bases on balls with 9, aided the Western Suburbs cause with a run-scoring walk in the bottom of the first. For the game, the third baseman was 1 for 3 with a double and a walk.

Armstrong told the Western Suburbs Observer: "Sometimes the big stage is not big enough for me."
