Berkeley Eagles continued their phenomenal start to the Illawarra league season on Saturday, piling on 16 runs to overpower Dapto Chiefs.
It was a tight opening to the game, with Berkeley registering just one run until the floodgates began to opening in the bottom of the third.
Three there was followed by four more in the next innings, before Berkeley ran out 16-7 winners.
It means the Eagles have now amassed 52 runs in five games to be unbeaten at the top of the standings.
The seven they conceded to the Chiefs is more than half of their total runs against throughout the campaign so far.
In the other game, Northern Pirates closed the gap on second-placed Wests Cardinals with a gritty 4-2 victory.
It brings the Pirates to within one game of Cardinals, with the Chiefs languishing winless in last place.
It was a special occasion for Illawarra baseball, which held a special pink round, raising hundreds of dollars for breast cancer support network BreastAware Australia.
