History made in Lismore at baseball championship

THE Australian Senior League Baseball Championship pool play has concluded with the competition still wide open at Albert Park, Lismore.

History was made late on day two, with the first two home runs of the tournament being hit.

Eastern Phantoms Mason Talbot nailed a three run homer against Hills, and later in the day, Southern Mariners catcher Ciaran Palmer blasted a two run shot on the main diamond against Cronulla.

Both the Eastern Phantoms and Southern Mariners continue to make headlines with the two teams setting the pace at the end of pool play.

The Mariners began the day having to work hard against Manly, giving up a seven run lead early, however Manly's pitching faded late, with the Mariners plating an astonishing 16 runs in the fifth and six inning.

After an incredible pitched performance on day one, Jack O'Loughlin is proving a menace with bat in hand also, nailing two hits and picking up two RBIs in a powerful display of hitting for the Titans in the opening game of the day.

The Adelaide Armada have been building this week, and have been lead extremely well by Mason Clavell.

Clavell has been selected in the Major League Baseball Australian Academy Program for 2016, and showed his talents against Central Coast, going 3-for-3 with four RBIs and a home run.

The qualifying finals begin this morning at 10am, with the final on Thursday.
