Terriers Dismantle West Milfred Nj
The offense continued to roll for the Terriers in the Baseball Quebec Challenge being played in Montreal. The dogs struck early and often, putting up 5 runs in the top of the first versus the 2 and 0 West Milfred NJ club. Nathan Loehle got the ball rolling with a walk, and then Jeff Skelhorne-Gross was hit by a pitch. Cleanup hitter Brian Burton, who is on a tear at the plate of late, smashed the ball down the left field line for a double and 2 RBI.
Matt Loughridge and Joel Stubbs followed with walks, loading the bases for Jeff Hunt. Jeff promptly pounded the first pitch over the right fielders head, clearing the bases for 3 RBI and a standup triple. 5-0 Terriers after one.
Starter Nathan Linseman was cruising with 2 out in the second inning when he was hit with a scorching line drive off his shoulder. He gutted out the balance of the inning but had to be relieved by right hander Tyler Fischer.
The onslaught continued in the third inning. Brent Mitchell lead off with a walk, Loughridge followed with a single, and both advanced on a Jeff Hunt fielder’s choice. Second baseman Marty Chasles then came to the plate and counted 2 RBI. Shortstop Chad Marshall followed with an RBI of his own, scoring Chasles, 9-0 Terriers after three complete.
More of the same in the top of the sixth, 5 more runs with hits coming from Marshall, Loehle, Burton, Hunt and Mitchell.
Tyler Fischer mowed down the New Jersey hitters the rest of the way, a 14-0 victory.
The Terriers sit at 2 and 0 and face Quebec later today.
