Earlier, recalled Test squad paceman James Pattinson snared four wickets, including the crucial breakthrough on Friday morning, as Queensland made 306 in their second innings.
Handscomb took a sharp catch at wide first slip off Pattinson to dismiss tailender Mark Steketee for a top score of 52.
That ended the stubborn rearguard stand from Steketee and captain Jimmy Peirson, who put on 88 in 99 minutes to frustrate the Vics.
Pattinson also snared the wicket of Mitchell Swepson for five and Peirson was left on a fine 51 not out when Handscomb caught Blake Edwards off Chris Tremain to end the innings.
After years of back injury woes, the good news keeps coming for Pattinson.
While Pattinson doubts he will make the first Test XI against Pakistan, the paceman impressed in this match.
He opened the bowling on Friday morning and took 2-10 from eight overs, giving him 4-66 off 28 overs for the innings.
Pattinson relished a solid workload this week, taking six wickets in 48 overs for the match.
Fellow Test paceman Peter Siddle took 3-58 and Tremain finished with 2-71.
Modders Add Cut Pokémon To Sword & Shield .
Now that Sword & Shield is out, fans are free to pick through the game’s code, and of course one of the first things that’s being done is the addition of some Pokémon that didn’t actually make it into the game. SciresM from Project Pokémon has posted some video showing off the work he’s done so far, by adding an Omastar to Sword & Shield’s Pokedex, then having it enter a battle.Animation on entering battle is pretty broken, but it works okay other than that.Obviously stats are broken (didn't fix the personal entry yet), and this was originally an edited yamper that I didn't bother giving legitimate moves. pic.twitter.
