Brisbane lead the league in batting average, with a .285 team mark, and rank second in team runs score, with 49.
On the other hand, Perth enter their second homestand of the season after splitting a road series against the Blue Sox in Round 2. Behind a strong start by new ABL all-time wins leader Daniel Schmidt and clutch hitting in extra innings by team mainstay Matt Kennelly, the Heat won the first and final games of the four-game series, ensuring entry into the next round with the momentum of a win.
The Heat won last year’s season series 8-4. The two teams will play a pair of doubleheaders this weekend, starting with 8:05pm and 11:05pm AEDT on Friday, 6 November. The series concludes with two more doubleheaders on Saturday, 7 November at 7:05pm and 10:05pm AEDT.
