Friday overnight (U.S. time) - Game Log / Box Score

Brisbane was trounced 22-2. The Bandits actually led 1-0 after three innings.

After three outstanding outings to begin his Aussie adventure, RHP Michele Vassalotti had a second consecutive rough effort, this one an uncharacteristically wild relief appearance.

1.1 IP, 1 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 1 HBP, 2 K

Catcher Nick Kahle was behind the plate for all of this one. Kahle was 1-for-3 at the plate. You can see his sharp line drive to center field on an 0-2 pitch as his at-bat begins at the 23:50 minute mark here.

Vassalotti entered in the 4th inning with one out and the bases loaded. He closed the inning with a strikeout, two walks (each sending in a run), and then another K.

In the 5th, Vassalotti's game log - F8, double, HBP, F3, walk, walk (final walk forced in another run). The reliever that followed allowed all three of Vassalotti's runners to score. Brisbane pitchers walked 11 in the game.

You can hear the announcers discuss Vassalotti in some detail during his warmup tosses which begins his night on the mound at the 01:22:45 hour/minute mark at the same video link as above. Throwing gas to that first batter.

***

Perth played a doubleheader, but neither game was televised. In Game One, Alex Hall was behind the plate for a 7-1 win, but was 0-for-3 at the plate (two K's). He sat out Game Two. In 49 AB's, Hall has a .648 OPS, but has fanned 19 times.

Saturday overnight (U.S. time) - Game Log / Box Score

Brisbane loses 10-7, to fall to a 6-16 record.

Day off for the lone Brewer position player on the club, Nick Kahle.

Paxton Schultz was the only one of the three Milwaukee pitchers active on the team (Hardy, Vassalotti) to see action, making his 7th appearance.

1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R (a HR), 0 BB, 0 K, 1 WP

Unfortunately, the home run came with two outs and it was to the first batter Schultz faced. It was a grand slam on an 0-2 pitch (video), allowing three inherited runners to score. The dude who hit it has three grand slams in his last two games. In this at bat, he fouled off four really tough pitches just prior to going deep.

After the HR, Schultz got a groundout to end the 4th.

In the scoreless 5th, it went groundout, double, wild pitch, pop out, line out.

To watch Schultz's outing from the start, go to the 01:10:50 hour/minute mark here.

Perth was idle, so no update on Brewer catcher Alex Hall today.

In case you missed it earlier in the thread here:

Mass Haas said:
Via Adam McCalvy:

"Particularly astute fans may have noticed that Minor League RHP Brandon Ramey has not appeared in the Australian Baseball League after traveling Down Under with a group of other Brewers prospects. He developed a minor wrist injury while throwing bullpen sessions, and the Brewers opted to play it safe, considering the brevity of the Australian season. Ramey was one of three pitchers acquired from the Phillies in August for reliever David Phelps."

Thursday overnight (U.S. time) - Game Log / Box Score

Bandits lose 5-4, in extra innings.

RHP Paxton Schultz continued his excellent ABL season, tossing three scoreless, only allowing one baserunner (a single). 17-to-1 K-to-BB in 13.2 IP over eight appearances, sweet. His outing began with two out in the top of the 4th when he stranded two baserunners.

The ABL posted a nice summary piece of his work here.

Catcher Nick Kahle was 0-for-4 ( two R, one BB, two K). One SB against, one throwing error.

Friday overnight (U.S. time) - Game Log / Box Score

Brisbane falls 12-11 in eleven innings, archived here.

This game was even wilder than the score indicates. Each team scored four runs in the 11th, with Brisbane surrendering a grand slam in the bottom of the inning that tied things at 11-11.

Earlier in the game, RHP Matt Hardy tossed a scoreless 5th, but was taken out for a three-run HR in the 6th that tied the game at 7-7.

Hardy - 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR.

You can watch Matt's stint as he enters the game right at the 02:00:00 hour mark at the link above. He ends the 5th with two K's after his mate's fielding error put him in trouble.

On the flip side, go to the 02:32:15 mark to see the HR against Hardy.

The Canberra announcers were pleased throughout as the 11-14 Cavalry ended up clinching a playoff spot with their win.

Nick Kahle was behind the plate for the full game. Kahle was 2-for-5 (double, single, BB, two RBI, K).

His single was of the bloop variety and can be seen here.

Kahle's first-pitch line drive RBI double to the LF wall is at the 01:48:00 mark in the game archive video.

With the loss, Brisbane falls to 8-18 and is eliminated from the playoff picture. In fact, they "clinched" the bottom spot in the league standings. The Bandits would have had to win their final four games to qualify.

Still has been fun to follow, a nice baseball distraction.

Saturday overnight (U.S. time) - Game Log / Box Score

Brisbane drops its finale, 4-0.

Nick Kahle was a late sub at catcher but did not get a plate appearance.

20-year-old RHP Michele Vassalotti made his 6th appearance

2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K

To watch Vassalotti's outing, go to the 01:51:30 hour/minute mark at the game video here.

(Maybe it's just me, but I've been fascinated with the base Michele is able to get with his "long" feet. Optical illusion?)

Here's a link to the Brisbane final stat page.

Some of those WHIP's are miscalculated...

Catcher Nick Kahle finishes with a very solid .749 OPS.

RHP Paxton Schultz was consistently good throughout, while fellow RHP's Matt Hardy and Vassalotti had their good moments as well, just not as steady each time out.

RHP Brandon Ramey was sidelined by a minor wrist ailment and did not pitch, as Adam McCalvy told us.

***

FYI - While this was Brisbane's finale, catcher Alex Hall of Perth will be participating in the league playoffs, and we'll track his games here. So our thread lives on for now.

Final update of the off-season:

Perth lost the Australian League Championship Game 9-2, the Heat's first run scored on an RBI single from Brewers catcher Alex Hall (video).

I'm always mentioning how Hall is a switch-hitter, and we finally have video evidence in the form of a home run, as Alex finished 2-for-4 and drove in both of his the Heat runs.

Two years ago, then 19-year-old Hall had 145 ABL at-bats. A year, later, 95. In 2020-2021, just 49 with a limited Covid schedule.

***

Thanks everyone who kept up with this thread, even if it was a quiet winter in terms of the number of players participating.
