The Hedland Baseball Association finals series is in full swing, with the final two teams battling it out to see who will reign supreme.

In the first two games of the three-game series, the Swans and Brewers take one a piece, meaning the final game will decide it all.

The Swans were victorious in game one last Wednesday night, winning it 6-5 in an unexpected but welcome result.

The Brewers struggled to hit the ball in the first game, only scoring one run in the first six innings.

With the Swans ahead 6-1 heading into the final three innings, some concentration was required from the Brewers. They managed to hold the Swans scoreless and get home four times in the last three, but fell just short in the end, losing by just one.

Flying high after their first game win, the Swans seemed to get a little complacent, slipping in the second game, which saw the Brewers smash them 25-5.

The first innings set the tone for the game, with the Swans only scoring one run to the Brewers’ 11.

From there on, it was an onslaught, with the Swans not scoring any runs in any innings except the fifth, in which they managed four.

Kris Brown was the MVP of the night, getting home four times on the night and managing six RBIs from six hits.

Despite the deficit, it was an exciting game with plenty of big hits, acrobatic catches and at-times awkward piggy-in-the-middle tagging situations.

Game three will be played at Marie Marland Reserve at 7.30pm on Saturday and will decide who takes home the flag.
