12:03 pm on 27 February 2013

A home run from catcher Aaron Stroman-Neemia catapulted the Black Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Czech Republic in a warm up match before the World Softball Championship begins on Friday in Auckland.

With a four-run lead midway through the fifth innings, the veteran pitcher Jarrad Martin conceded a three-run home run to let the Czechs back into the contest, before he closed them out over the final two innings.

The Black Sox' final warm-up game is against South Afria on Thursday.
