Martians play Pi’s in Geraldton women’s A-grade softball on Saturday before Rams contest a double header in the men’s.

Pi’s are coming off a loss to Midwest Marlins last Saturday and will be hoping to get some runs back.

In the men’s, Rams will be hoping to emulate their opponents in the late game at 8pm, Suiside, who won both their matches last Saturday. They play Martians in the earlier fixture, at 6pm.

In the women’s, Pi’s went down 14-4 last Saturday as Midwest Marlins went on a hitting spree to go top of the ladder.

In the men’s division, Suiside go into this round on top of the ladder with three wins from three after they won last week.

Rams are 1-1, and in second, and Martians are 0-3.

Suiside beat a youthful Rams side missing pitcher Dean Pascoe and catcher Shane Clark last Saturday, with Rams coach Paul Valenti forced to improvise. Suiside won 4-1, thanks to a two-run homer by Dylan Percy. Suiside’s best were Percy, who is lightning quick around the base path, and Cooper Jefferies.

For Rams, there were only three hitters — Valenti, Jake Chapman and Dion Harrison.

Suiside then took on a solid-looking Martians outfit, who welcomed back Tane Brott from work.

Dylan Percy again led the young Suiside team, hitting a second home run of the day, this time inside the diamond.

Suiside hit the lead and never looked back, with Cooper Jefferies solid in the middle and not allowing much offence from the Martians’ line-up.

The juniors put some big numbers up last Thursday night. Midwest Marlins beat Bulldogs 18-0, and in the second game Martians got on the board with a 14-7 victory over Blaze.
