Brandon Dailey Swings Hot Bat And Plays Stellar Defense!
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Tuesday, March 17, 2009
Boca Raton, FL After a 10-0 victory earlier in the day, the Terriers got into a slugfest with the Florida Memorial Lions (NAIA), eventually prevailing 11-10! Florida Memorial College is located just north of Miami. The Lions jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first off starter Tavis Bruce. The lead did not last long however, as the Terriers struck for four runs in their half of the inning.

Joel Stubbs, Tanner Nivins, Kevin Nickel and Jeff Hunt all crossed the plate for the 4-2 first inning lead. In the top of the second, Florida Memorial struck for two more runs, knotting the game at fours. Lefty Riley Bohar came on in the third and blanked the Lions, however the top of the fourth was a different story. The Lions took advantage of a few walks and Terrier errors, scoring four runs on just two hits. With the score 8-4 Memorial in the bottom of the fourth the Terriers bats would assault the Lions bullpen for seven runs on five hits. Shortstop Brandon Dailey got the rally started with a single through the 5-6 hole. Joel Stubbs followed with a walk and then Tanner Nivins was hit by a pitch. Cleanup hitter Donovan Latour made it 8-5 with an RBI single to right, scoring Dailey. Donovan would have two hits on the day. The Terriers got the game to within one one after Stubbs and Nivins both scored on pass balls. Kevin Nickel, who has been on fire all week, would come through again with a single up the middle, scoring Latour and tieing the game 8-8. After a Graeme Carey walk, 6'4" Chandler McLaren stepped into the box and drilled an 85 mph fastball to the right field fence, scoring Nickel. In his second at bat of the inning, Brandon Dailey got his second hit for two RBIs, putting the Terriers ahead 11-8. Right hander Matt Betts took the mound for the sixth and seventh innings, allowing two runs, but preserved the 11-10 victory. Although the game was high scoring, Brandon Dailey and Tanner Nivins both made several excellent defensive plays. The win moves the Terriers March break trip record to 4 and 1. Next up, a huge test Tuesday when they visit Miami-Dade, who is currently ranked sixth in the nation.
