Terriers Split 4 Game Set In Ottawa
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, May 13, 2007
After a disappointing Saturday DH, dropping both games to the Ottawa Canadians, the Terriers bounced back Sunday with two wins of their own to split the weekend series. There was a circus type atmosphere at Lynx Park for game 3 Sunday morning. CBC trucks, cameras, reporters, pro scouts from more than 12 MLB teams and a crowd of over a 150 were all in attendance to see Canadian Junior National Team phenom, Phillippe Aumont, start versus the young Terriers lineup.

Phillippe is anticipated to be selected in the first round in the upcoming Major League draft. He did not disappoint. His fast ball topped at 98mph and had 15 other fastballs clocked at 95mph. His slider was responsible for 6 Terrier strike outs. Not the least phased by the pressure and intensity of the situation, Terrier right hander Billy Martin had his own show to put on. Billy matched Aumont pitch for pitch through 4 innings. The score remained tied 0-0. The Canadians starter was taken out of the game after 4 on pitch count and the new Ottawa pitcher was welcomed rudely by the Terriers hitters, with a six run outburst. Marty Chasles, Brent Mitchell, Chad Marshall and Nathan Loehle all had singles. Terrell Alliman, Brian Burton and Jeff Skelhorne-Gross all doubled in the 5th inning rally. Billy cruised through the Ottawa hitters, allowing just one run on four hits. He walked only one, in the 79 pitch, 6-1 complete game victory. Game two saw the Terriers pick up where they left off offensively, jumping out to a quick 2-0 lead. Chad Marshall and Marty Chasles scored on RBIs by Terrell Alliman and Brian Burton in the first inning. There was more to come in inning number two as the Terriers scored 7 runs on 8 hits, when they batted around. Joel Stubbs had 2 hits in the inning, Chad Marshall, Nathan Linseman, Terrell Alliman, Jeff Skelhorne-Gross, Nathan Loehle and Brian Burton all had one. Brian counted 4 RBIs in the game which finished at 12-5. LHP Matt Loughridge got the win, going 4 innings. Evan Kipfer finished up the final three. Next action is Wednesday night at Labatt Park in London versus the Badgers. Canadian Junior National Team prospect Brad Furdal gets the start for the Terriers.
