SALEM, Ore.–Every summer, the Perth Heat Colts come to America as apart of expsoure for kids of Australia and those from other countries as well, to the game at the American-pace as well as introducing American College Scouts to the international talent.

One of the first-games they had was against the Withnell Dodgers of Salem, Oregon and for the kids of the Dodgers, it was interesting to play the different talent that the Colts brought to the States.

“It’s pretty cool to see how they travel across the ocean so far just to come and play in Oregon, it’s pretty cool” said Cascade’s Jake Davidson.  “It’s definitely different, you could tell that they don’t play like the teams in Oregon do.”

Withnell took advantage of Perth’s slow start to the game by taking a 3-1 lead after the first inning as a Error, bases-loaded walk and a Kaiden Doten single built the temporary lead as the team from down Under tied it up in the top half of the second with a Josh Greenham sacrifice fly and Jess Williams RBI double.

That’s when the Perth Heat Colts settled in as they held the hot bats of the Dodgers to one more run over the next eight innings in the 9-4 win Wednesday evening at Willamette University.
