Terriers Split Dh To Close Out Spring Training
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, March 18, 2007
The Terriers head home today after their final two games Saturday in Florida. Game one versus The Community College of Rhode Island saw the Terriers get off to another quick start from the top of the order. Chad Marshall drove the first pitch of the game into the right centre field gap for a stand up triple. Jeff Skelhorne-Gross hit a single up the middle for the games first RBI. The hit parade continued with consecutive hits by Brent Mitchell, Brian Burton and Jeff Hunt.

Unfortunately the bases were left loaded and the Terriers led 2-0. Rhode Island bounced back with two runs of their own in the bottom half of the first. The second inning went scoreless, but the the third inning was a different story. Brent Mitchell lead off with a single,then Brian Burton deposited the ball over the centre field fence for two RBI. Jeff Hunt followed with a base hit, stole second, then scored on a Joel Stubbs hit. Marty Chasles and Steve Hubbs also had hits in the inning,but were stranded. Rhode Island counted one run in their half to make the score 5-3. Starter Brad Furdal got into a bases loaded jam in the forth but was bailed out by rightfielder Joel Stubbs,who made a brilliant running catch. That play ignited the Terriers as they scored four runs in the top of the fifth. The big blow came from Marty Chasles,a clutch bases clearing double. Nathan Linseman pitched the fifth and sixth innings. The Terriers tacked on some insurance runs in the top of the seventh on hits by Marshall, Skelhorne-Gross and Mitchell. Shaun Hancock came on to pitch the seventh. The final score 11-7. Game two did not go as well however,as the toll of 12 games in 10 days, plus practices and hot weather caught up to the club. The Terriers fly home Sunday and will continue to work out at Frozen Ropes until the weather breaks for the start of the Premier Baseball League of Ontario schedule.
