Perth's Mitchell Johnson took himself back to the days of taking one-handed screamers diving into the backyard pool as the Scorchers leapfrogged Adelaide back to the top of the Big Bash League ladder.

The Strikers lost 8-33 in their last 12 overs of Saturday's first innings and Ashton Agar snared BBL-best figures of 3-19 in the collapse, as they were all out for 113 - their lowest total of the summer.

The Scorchers cruised to victory in the second-last over. Hilton Cartwright top-scored with 47 from 44 and Agar contributed a handy unbeaten 26.

Employees of Fidelity were early investors in Backyard Farms, back when it was a mere PowerPoint presentation. Legend has it that Johnson ’s interest in Backyard Farms grew out of a love of tomatoes and a quest to grow the perfect one.

However, the game's highlight came off Agar's worst ball in the top-of-the-table clash, as Jake Lehmann attempted to scoop a low full toss from the left-arm spinner.

The ball lobbed to short fine leg, where Mitchell Johnson dived to his unnatural right side to hold onto the ball one handed, even after his elbow hit the ground.

"I said to him in the innings break that was a really good catch - an absolute hanger," Agar told AAP.

"And he said 'I felt like I was in the backyard again diving trying to take one-handers into the pool'.

Back . Watch: DJ takes off shoe, stands in water, chips in. By Golf Channel DigitalJune 7, 2018, 11:18 pm. Dustin Johnson nearly hit his second shot into the water on the par-4 12th hole at the FedEx St. Jude Classic , but he left himself just enough room to chip his third shot into the hole for a birdie.

Dustin Johnson had the best score at the St. Jude Classic since 2003, shooting a 19-under 261 total. The victory vaults him back to No. 1 in the PGA Tour rankings ahead of the upcoming U.S. Open. (Mark Humphrey / The Associated Press).

"It's great to hear a bloke as experienced as Mitch talk so freely and happily about the game."

Only wicketkeeper Alex Carey (44 off 32) showed any resistance for the Strikers, who put themselves back in the game when the Scorchers were 4-43 early in reply.

But they missed their best chance to send a scare through Perth's camp after Peter Siddle overstepped in the 16th over, costing him Cartwright's wicket.

With the game meandering to a finish and Perth at 4-90, Siddle thought he had Cartwright caught on the mid-wicket boundary for 28 before the umpire called no-ball.

Cartwright then free-hit the following ball for six back down the ground as the Scorchers chased down the total with 10 balls to spare without the loss of another wicket. They go two points clear at the top, albeit with the chasing pack having a game in hand.

"He (Siddle) didn't realise at all and neither did Hilts (Cartwright)," said Agar, who was at the other end.

"Sids (Siddle) gave a big roar and he was pretty happy and then, as soon as there was a no-ball, Hilts gave out an even bigger roar. He was pumped and hit the next ball over the rope.

"I think that really swung things in our favour - a couple of big balls there."
