Terriers Crown Kentucky Kings
The Terriers completed pool play at the 18u Sandlott World Series in Nashville with a 7-4 win over the Kings from the Bluegrass State.
With their 3 and 0 record, the Terriers won their pool and will play at 4:30pm tomorrow on the campus of Trevecca University in downtown Nashville. Their opponent is unknown at this time.
Right hander Tyler Fischer threw a complete game and was never in trouble. The battery of Brent Mitchell and Tyler did an excellent job of keeping the Kentucky hitters off balance all day by changing speeds and pitching to location. He did not walk a batter. Tyler got several weak fly balls and induced two double plays, turned by the middle tandem of Marty Chasles and Chad Marshall. Evan Kipfer had an excellent day at the plate, with 3 hits and 2 RBIs. Joel Stubbs, Chad Marshall and Jeff Skelhorne-Gross had 2 hits each. Matt Loughridge, Brian Burton and Greg Densem chipped in with singles. Catcher Brent Mitchell reached first 3 times on HBPs. The Terriers hit several balls very hard that forced the Kings into 4 errors on the day. Chad Marshall continued to make splendid defensive plays up the middle. He has been outstanding in all three games so far.
The tournament is now single elimination. Right hander Steve Harley will throw the first playoff game for the Terriers.
