Alex Burg (Volcanoes '10) got two hits in the Perth Heat's opening round 10-2 loss to the Samsung Lions, Korean champions. Both teams are part of the four-team Asian Series to crown the best club amongst all defending APAC country champions.
While there are no moral victories, it is worth noting this is Australia's first time sending a champion to this tournament - and as we have seen, top Asian teams can hold their own against anyone.
The Heat battle Taiwan champions, Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions, later tonight.
