South Australia clinched their first Bupa Sheffield Shield win at the MCG since 1998 and handed Victoria their first loss of the summer by completing a nine-wicket thrashing of the Bushrangers on Monday.
The previously unbeaten hosts resumed the final day at 6-86, still trailing the Redbacks by 11 runs in the second innings.
And despite a half-century from Peter Handscomb, the Bushrangers were bowled out for a miserable 132, before the Redbacks mowed down the 36 runs required for victory just before lunch.
It was only South Australia's second outright victory in 22 matches and lifts Darren Berry's men to fourth on the table.
They had banked first-innings points on Sunday after Phil Hughes scored an eye-catching 158 to power the visitors to 443 after the Vics won the toss and compiled 346.
The Bushrangers did their dash late on day three, slumping to 6-41 just before stumps.
With wicketkeeper-batsman Handscomb and all-rounder John Hastings at the crease, Victoria clung to a remote chance off a miracle victory.
But prolific seam bowling from quicks Gary Putland and Chadd Sayers ensured momentum stayed with the Redbacks.
Putland was South Australia's chief destroyer, claiming 5-28 to go with a seven-wicket haul in the first innings, while Sayers snared 4-50 including the key wicket of Hastings, who added just three to his overnight score before he was trapped in front for 13.
Victoria's hopes faded when Handscomb (50) lofted Johan Botha to mid-off and Putland wrapped up the innings by finding the outside edges of Jayde Herrick (18) and Louis Cameron (one).
Despite the low chase, opener Hughes stuck to his attacking style, clubbing two boundaries through backward point in the first over he faced.
But it brought about his downfall on eight as he edged Herrick to Handscomb in the second over, leaving Sam Raphael (10 not out) and Michael Klinger (18 not out) to wrap up the match.
