Canberra Cavalry hold off Adelaide Bite to clinch ABL series

Outfielder David Kandilas continued his dominant season with the bat - with a solo home run and a three-run double - while Reed, Witherspoon and Cam Warner joined him with homers of their own.

They should've won by more, getting out to a 12-3 lead, but the Cavalry bullpen struggled when Bachar left the game and the Bite took advantage to rally late.

The visitors had been their own worst enemy at times - dropping fly balls and missing simple outs at first base - but their offence exploded to score 10 runs in three innings to level the score.

But the Cavalry steadied, with the Perkins brothers, Kyle and Robbie, both bringing runners home to make it 15-13, before Canberra closer Michael Click put the Cavalry fans out of their misery despite Bite scoring once to halve the lead.

The Bite were on track to be the worst team in ABL history with a winning percentage of 22.5 per cent, with no team ever finishing with a percentage less than 30.
