Tigers Shut Out Magpies
Balmain right-hander Cec Palk was in fine form, shutting out the Western Suburbs Magpies, 1-0. Palk, the winner, moves to 1-1. He threw 8 innings of 4-hit ball, while fanning 2 and giving up 4 walks. Kenji Egawa got credit for the save for Balmain. It was his 4th of the year.

Kevin Berry, who is a eight-time Gold Glove Award winner, chipped in for Balmain with a solo home run in the top of the fourth. For the game, the right fielder had 2 hits in 4 at-bats with 1 home run, 1 single, 1 run scored, and 1 run batted in.

"We put it together today and came out with the win," Palk said in postgame remarks. "That's the main thing."

Losses have been few and far between for the Magpies, who are now 11-4.
