Central Coast Marlins ran out with a convincing 9-1 victory over the Canterbury Vikings in round four of the State Baseball League played at Baseball Park, Springfield, on Sunday, October 12.
Marlins came out swinging in the bottom of the first inning, with leadoff batter Jason Rees hitting a home run over the left field fence. Hits then to Michael Campbell, Adam Howe and Josh Tippett resulted in an early 4-0 lead. Marlins added another two runs in the bottom of the third inning when both Chris Ings and Paul Anderson singled and scored. Marlins had Craig Anderson on the mound to start and he cruised through his four innings of work without giving up a run. He was relieved by brother Paul in the fifth inning who closed out the game conceding just one unearned run. The game was put beyond doubt in the eighth inning when Boss Moanaroa crushed a three run home run. The win left the Marlins with a 3-2 record.
