PERTH – It was the Alcohol. Think Again Perth Heat who drew first blood in the Post Season defeating the Canberra Cavalry 6-3 in front of a smaller than anticipated Friday Night crowd in Perth.

In a quick-fire game that saw both starters Canberra’s Brian Grenning and Perth’s Alex Boshers impress on the mound.

For the Home Town Heat, it was a 4 spot in the 2nd that caused the most damage and proved to be a gap too wide for the Cavs to close.

For the Heat it was a tick, tick, tick on the hill as Alex Boshers was complimented by a quality bullpen effort from Joe Van Meter, Warwick Saupold and Cameron Lamb.
