Another tense game at Aquatic Reserve on Saturday saw Pittwater claim a stunning upset over the Redbacks to make their way into the Grand Final against the Big Dogs.
Despite claiming the Minor Premiership, the Redbacks struggled without injured starter Ben Logue on the mound and once again Pittwater jumped out to an early 4-0 lead.
The Redbacks pegged them back to 4-4 going into the final few innings, but some clutch hitting by Dan Cox (solo home run and a 2 RBI single) helped Pittwater extend their lead to 9-4 going into the bottom of the 7th.
The Redbacks once again mounted a strong comeback, eventually falling just short and losing 9-7, with the 8th run tagged out at home after a magnificent throw from Pittwater centrefielder Matt Monty to end the game.
So the Cinderella story continues for the Pittwater team as they make the Grand Final from 3rd place and look to erase the scars of last season’s one run Grand Final defeat to the Hornets.
It all comes down to this: Big Dogs vs Pittwater at Aquatic Reserve at 2pm this Saturday (10th March).
