Ducks continue undefeated run


MORDIALLOC Ducks remain as the only club in the EL division of the Melbourne Winter Baseball league to keep their undefeated status intact after a dominant victory over the Croydon Rams on Saturday 12 May.

The Ducks braved the cold, wintery conditions for a seven-run victory over the Rams (8-1) at the Cheltenham Baseball Club, and bought up their fourth win in their opening season.

With just the one home-run hit in their previous three matches, the Ducks came into their own against the Rams and showed why they remain as the only undefeated side by belting three back-to-back home-runs (James Coyne, Luke Thompson and Eddie Meadows) in the second innings.

While the Rams scored first, some tight fielding kept them scoreless for the remainder of the match as the Ducks continued to pile on runs to the scoreboard and bring up their fourth victory.

Mordialloc Ducks’ president Ben Newton said he couldn’t be any happier with the way the side is progressing.

“When we got going we didn’t really slow down,” he said.

“It seems like the infield players have really found their groove. To see us keep another undefeated side to just the one run was pretty special.”

Despite remaining undefeated, the Ducks sit at second on the ladder behind Watsonia because of a bye in the third round.

The Ducks are hoping to continue their flying start to the season on Saturday 19 May where they’ll face the Knox Falcons at home.
