Stubbs Rubs Out Metros!
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, September 26, 2008
Dogs keep rolling in the desert! The Metros from Las Vegas Nevada kept rolling the dice against right hander Joel Stubbs, but could only come up with snake eyes through six innings. That would not be near enough on this night as the Terriers rolled to a 9-2 victory at the Rising Sun Tournament in Mesa Arizona. With games earlier in the week versus Junior Colleges and bullpens in front of college coaches at the Rising Sun Showcase event, the Terriers pitching staff was in need of a break.

Usually known for his stellar play at shortstop, Joel Stubbs stepped up and took to the mound in this one. He would throw six solid innings, allowing just four hits, while striking out five and walking just one. The offense provided Joel plenty of breathing room right out of the gate. The dogs smacked the Metros starting lefthander for three runs in the first inning. After Nathan Loehle reached on an error and advanced on a pass ball, he would score on a Tanner Nivins RBI single. Nivins moved up to second base on the play, then scored on yet another single by red hot Donovan Latour. Latour crossed home plate two batters later on a Jeff Hunt RBI. 3-0 Terriers after one inning. In the bottom of the second Kevin Nickel lead the way when he was hit by a pitch. After stealing second base, he easily scored on a blast to left center field by shortstop Brandon Dailey. With the Metros left hander clearly rattled at this point, Dailey promptly stole third, then crossed on a Nathan Loehle RBI. Loehle was also responsible for the Terriers sixth run in the bottom of the fourth. With catcher Kaiden Bowers at first base after he had walked, Loehle launched a ball into the right field corner for a triple and his second RBI of the game. The boys from sin city scored two runs in the top of the fifth to close the gap to 6-2 however the Terriers quickly answered in their half of the inning. After walks to Latour and Carey, Jeff Hunt stepped in and hit a mammoth shot to the fence in right field for a two run triple. Jeff later scored, to close out the game at 9-2. Rising Sun Tournament play continues Saturday in Mesa.
