Corey Adamson Leads Perth To Victory... Again

Lars Baron

Padres minor-leaguer Corey Adamson drove in the winning run for the second day in a row as the Perth Heat defeated the Adelaide Bite in Saturday's Australian Baseball League play. This time it was with an RBI single in the bottom of the tenth inning.

Perth took an early lead with a three-run third inning, but Adelaide evened it up with one run in the seventh and two more in the eighth. Both teams were scoreless in the ninth, so it was on to bonus baseball. Daniel Schmidt came in for the Heat and retired the side in the top of the tenth. Allan de San Miguel led off the bottom of the inning with a single and moved to second on a bunt by Alex Stuart. After George Barber struck out swinging for the second out, Adamson stepped to the plate for the sixth time. One-for-five with a run scored and a strikeout under his belt, Adamson singled up the middle to score de San Miguel from second and push Perth's record to an astounding 31-14.

Adamson's 2-6 showing pushed his batting average up one point to .311. The two teams will meet up again tomorrow in the final game of the regular season. Perth, with the only record over .500 in the six-team league, is of course postseason-bound. They will be vying for their third ABL championship of the past four years.
