Terriers Win Back To Back Tournaments With Thrilling Come From Behind Victory
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, July 8, 2007
On an overcast morning in Montreal, the Terriers would be looking to go 2 for 2 on their summer tournament schedule. Their opponent in the final, PBLO rival the Toronto Mets. Right hander Brad Furdal would take to the hill for the Terriers, facing six foot five inch Matt Jebb for Toronto. Toronto got out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. The Mets tacked on 2 more runs in the bottom of the third and took a three run lead into the fifth inning.

The Terriers offense would finally catch fire in their half of the fifth. Jeff Hunt led the inning off with a single, followed by a walk by Joel Stubbs. Nathan Loehle hit into a fielders choice, advancing Hunt to second, Stubbs was thrown out at second, but the rally continued on back to back singles by shortstop Chad Marshall (rbi) and second baseman Marty Chasles. Red hot catcher Brent Mitchell came to the plate next and scorched a ball to the gap tying the game at 3. Joel Stubbs relieved Furdal and pitched a scoreless bottom of the fifth, keeping the game tied. In the top of the sixth with 2 out Stubbs walked. On this day the heroics would come from center fielder Nathan Loehle, as on a 1-1 count he hit a deep fly ball over the right fielders head, scoring Stubbs from first. Nathan was named game MVP and received an engraved bat as a memento. Leading 4-3 with six outs to go, veteran Terrier Brian Burton was handed the ball to close out the championship. It did not come easy, as Toronto got two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but Brian got a ground ball to Chad Marshall to end the game. The Terriers were presented with a Baseball Quebec Championship banner, which will be hung at Frozen Ropes. Next up...the big one! The Terriers look to defend their 2006 Sandlott Baseball World Series Championship in Nashville TN, beginning July 17th.
