After Sunraysia set local baseball clubs back on their heels in the opening round with a 23-1 win against Waikerie it was a different situation last Friday night when Renmark, after losing to Berri 5-0 first up, had a stronger lineup available and defeated Sunraysia in an entertaining contest 4-3.

At Waikerie the enterprising local Black Sox had their usual carnival atmosphere on show but out on the field although they never looked like throwing in the towel they could not hold on to Berri and went dowd 14-2.

In B Grade there was an entertaining, high scoring game between Renmark White 11 and Renmark Blue 8.

Berri Blue defeated Waikerie 16-0 in the other game with two innings of seven runs on end deciding the result.l
