Clem, Brown Succeeding Down Under
Two members of last season's Husky baseball senior class have been enjoying the "winter" by playing for the Perth Heat in the Australian Baseball League. With the southern hemisphere's summer moving along, Jacob Clem and Geoff Brown are a part of a Perth squad that begins the playoffs today as the top-seeded team.
Clem recently made headlines with a remarkable relief outing in a 15-inning victory for the Heat. In the same manner as he was known to do it for the Huskies, Clem went seven innings in relief, allowing just two hits, before a teammate's homer in the 15th delivered the victory.
Meanwhile, Brown, the Huskies' all-time pitching appearances leader, posted a sparkling 5-0 record and 1.88 ERA for the Heat, who finished the regular season 34-11.
Perth hosts Melbourne in the first round of the playoffs while in the other semifinal series, Sydney takes on Adelaide.
