Brad Furdal Spins Music City Magic
The Sandlott World Series opened today in Nashville Tennessee with a matchup between two nasty dogs, the Brentwood Bulldogs (TN) and the defending champion Terriers.
On this 32 degree day the Terriers would prevail with a 5-1 victory on the back of right hander Brad Furdal.
Brad dominated the Bulldogs all day and was never in a jam. He allowed just one hit and 3 walks. His fastball touched 90mph on several occasions, but his best pitch was his power curve, which he struck 7 Brentwood hitters out on. Brad had 11 Ks on the day.
The Terriers took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third. Chad Marshall scored on a Brent Mitchell RBI single. The big inning came in the fifth. Jeff Skelhorne-Gross and Greg Densem both scored on an double down the line by cleanup hitter Brian Burton. Burton later scored on a Nathan Loehle single.
Next up for the Terriers, a tilt with the East Cobb Cubs (GA). Lefty Nathan Linseman has the ball for the Terriers.
