Terriers Romp Over Bluejays
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, June 20, 2007
The two youngest teams in the PBLO took to the field Wednesday night and were neck and neck early, however the Terriers scored 4 runs in the fifth and 5 more in the 6th to go on to a 12-4 victory. Shortstop Chad Marshall lead the game off with a walk advanced to third on a Nathan Loehle double and scored on a Jeff Skelhorne-Gross sac fly RBI.

The Terriers extended their lead to 3-0 in the third when Skelhorne-Gross lead off with a single Brian Burton reached on an error and both scored on a clutch two out single by third baseman Joel Stubbs. Shabby Terriers defense allowed the Bluejays to get back in the game in the bottom of the third. The inning ended at 3-2. The Terriers blew the game wide open in their half of the fifth. Once again veteran catcher Jeff Skelhorne-Gross lead the way when he was hit by a pitch then promptly stole second base. Brian Burton's single advanced Jeff to third. The duo then executed a double steal for the fourth Terrier run. The decisive blow of the game came off the bat of pinch hitter Matt Loughridge, a single to center field scoring Joel Stubbs who had reached on a single and Brent Mitchell who had walked. Evan Kipfer, had doubled earlier in the game counted his second RBI of the night making the score 7-2. Starting pitcher Tyler Fischer cruised through four innings of work giving way to Billy Martin in the fifth. Both right handers pitched very well. Blue Jay hitters were kept off balance all night with a nice blend of pin point fastballs and offspeed. The Terriers added five more runs in the top of the sixth. Jeff Hunt, Nathan Loehle, Evan Kipfer, Brent Mitchell and Skelhorne-Gross, who spent the night on the base paths, all had hits and scored in the inning. A much needed break in the schedule awaits as the Terriers have the next 6 days off before a double header versus these same Bluejays. The games go next Tuesday night at 9th Line Park in Mississauga. That week will wrap up on the Canada Day weekend with the Terriers first summer tournament hosted by the Toronto Mets at Bond Park. Round robin play opens Thursday with the Terriers playing the host team (SP Evan Kipfer) then Friday versus White Rock British Columbia of the BC Premier League,(SP Steve Harley) and Saturday a tilt with Quebec (SP Tyler Fischer). Tournament playoff rounds will go Saturday afternoon with the Championship on Sunday. The Toronto tournament will be followed by the Baseball Quebec Challenge in Montreal the next weekend. The Terriers draw New Brunswick West Milford Quebec and Toronto in round robin play. Lot's of great baseball ahead culminating in Music City USA with the Sandlott World Series ,when the Terriers will attempt to defend their 2006 crown.(July 17-22).
