Terriers Hang Tough In Double Header Debut
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, March 9, 2007
After a long travel day Thursday,ending with a practice at Palm Beach Community College, the 2007 edition of the Terriers opened there season with a double header in Boca Raton Florida. Right hander, Tyler Fischer got the ball in game one and was very impressive in 5 innings of work versus Burlington Community College.

Tyler walked just one hitter,and scattered only 3 hits. The Terriers took a 3-2 lead into the 7th inning, with lead-off hitter Chad Marshall leading the offense, counting 2 RBIs. Unfortunately,with 2 runners on in the bottom the seventh, the Barons 4 hitter stepped to the plate and hit a 3 run, walk off home run for the 5-3 victory. Marty Chasles, Darnell Duckett, Evan Kipfer and Jeff Skelhorne-Gross all chipped in with hits for the Terriers. In game two,the competition was Macomb Community College from Michigan. Brad Furdal drew the starting assignment. The Terriers had some bad luck right off the bat as Macomb loaded the bases without hitting the ball out of the infield by way of a few bad hops. Brad and the defense buckled down however and only allowed one run. The Terriers came right back with two runs of there own in the second inning when Darnell Duckett walked, stole second base, then scored on an RBI single by SS Chad Marshall. Terrell Alliman and Jeff Hunt followed with walks, then Brian Burton hit a sac fly for a 2-1 Terriers lead. Macomb scored a run in the third to tie the game 2-2. In their half of the fourth inning the Terriers took a 4-2 lead on hits by Joel Stubbs, Matt Loughridge and Terrell Alliman. Macomb answered back with a run of their own in the bottom of the fourth. Early season pitch count had Brad Furdals day over, leaving the game after 4 with a one run lead. Brad had a very good start, his fast topping at 88mph. Once again the Terriers could not hold the lead, giving up 3 runs in the 6th for a tough 5-4 loss. Several professional scouts from MLB teams such as the Angels, Blue Jays, Brewers, Mets, Devil Rays and the Nationals were in attendance. The day closed with Greg Hamilton, Director of National Teams speaking to the team. The Terriers thank Greg very much for taking the time to do so. Next on the slate is a game versus Brookdale Community College. LHP Nathan Linseman will get the start for the Terriers.
