MONASH University Baseball Club have notched up their first win of the season in round 7 of the Melbourne Winter Baseball League B grade competition.

The university team were able to get the better of Croydon, 3-1 at Monash’ home ground.

Monash coach Michael Hunt said it had been a tough start to the season for his club, having lost all of their pitching line up from last season.

He said David Beaumont was sensational on the mound, throwing six innings and holding Croydon to just one run.

“That was the difference,” he said.

“A few bats got up too and we got a couple of knocks too.”

Hunt said the club had suffered a tight loss last week against Melbourne University but that they were looking forward to two weeks off with the bye and Queen’s Birthday weekend break.

Croydon coach Sam Mather said it was a good performance by his team, despite the tight loss.

He said Ryan Masters and Ben Garland pitched well but that unfortunately his side didn’t capitalise when they were on base.

Croydon have only won one game for the season and after being relegated in 2014, Mather said the club was still rebuilding and blooding young players.

“We’re looking at establishing young players and getting them to learn as much about the game as we can,” he said.

Croydon will take on Melbourne University next week and Mather said his team would “have a real crack”.
