Terriers Roll Over Rhode Island
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, March 16, 2007
On yet another beautiful day in south Florida, the Terriers posted 12 hits and a decisive 9-4 victory over the Community College of Rhode Island. Steve Harley got the nod on the mound,going 4 innings. He is credited with the win as he left the game with a 5-4 lead. The Terriers jumped out to an early 2-0 lead when Chad Marshall and Jeff Skehorne-Gross got the offense going in the bottom of the first inning.

Chad was hit by a pitch, stole second, Jeff walked then the one-two tandem executed a double steal. After a pass ball, Jeff scored on a 2 out RBI single by Terrell Alliman. Rhode Island scored one in the top of the third to put the score at 2-1. The Terriers posted 3 runs of there own in the bottom half of the inning when Darnell Duckett walked, Marshall then singled up the middle and both runners advanced when the Rhode Island second baseman made a great play off Skelhorne-Gross's bat getting Jeff at first base. Brent Mitchell followed with a walk,setting the stage for clean up hitter Brian Burton, who drove the ball into the left centre field gap, clearing the bases. 5-1 Terriers after three complete. Poor defense, which has plagued the team the entire trip allowed Rhode Island to get back into the game in the top of the fourth, when they counted 3 runs. The Terriers answered right back however, when Nathan Loehle lead off with a bunt single. That was followed by a Marty Chasles single and walks to Joel Stubbs and Darnell Duckett. DH Chad Marshall, Jeff Skelhorne-Gross and Brent Mitchell all struck for RBI's putting the Terriers ahead 9-4. RHP Billy Martin came on in the 5th and was outstanding, completely dominating the Rhode Island hitters. They did not mount any kind of an offensive threat the rest of the day. The final two outs came on a beautiful game ending 6-4-3 double play executed by Marty Chasles and Joel Stubbs. Next up, Delaware Tech Friday afternoon. There is a threat of rain for the first time on the trip.
