Sr Terriers Take 3 Of 4 In Ottawa
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, May 3, 2009
The Terriers moved their early season record to 5 and 1 in PBLO league play with three victories over the Ottawa Canadians this past weekend. In game one Saturday lefthander Mitch Clarke had the ball, and was brilliant through six innings of work. He would strike out ten in a 9-0 Terriers win. Mitch did not allow a hit, but was relieved on early season pitch count in the seventh by righty Matt Betts.

Offensively Mitch also chipped in with two hits and two RBIs. Have a day! Clean-up hitter Jeff Hunt reached base four times with two singles and two walks. He also had two RBIs. The Terriers were in complete control of this one throughout. The decisive blow came in the fifth inning with the Terriers leading 4-0 and the bases loaded. Kevin Nickel stepped in and put the game away with a bullet to the right center field gap for two RBIs and a 6-0 lead. Aaron Wagner and Graeme Carey also had hits to round out the attack. Right handed flame thrower Jas Rakkar was on the mound in game two and he had his ‘A’ game. Over his five innings of work he would strike out 13 Ottawa hitters with an outstanding mix of his fastball, curve and change up. Jas walked just three and did not allow a hit. Like game one, he also got plenty of support from the Terriers hitters in this 8-0 win. Leading the way was shortstop Brandon Dailey who had three hits, including a double and an RBI. Other hits went to Graeme Carey (double), Joel Stubbs (2 singles RBI), Kevin Nickel (2 singles, 2 RBIs), Mitch Clarke (single, RBI) and Jeff Hunt (single, RBI). Sunday the teams split the double header. After dropping game one, the Terriers bounced back with a thrilling 3-2 extra inning victory in game two. Lefty Riley Bohar had an excellent outing holding the Canadians to just two runs in six innings. Jeff Hunt came on to pitch in the seventh and would hold the fort till the ninth. In the Terriers half of the ninth, Graeme Scott would score the winning run on a clutch two out RBI single by catcher Aaron Wagner. The SR Terriers next game is Wednesday night in Cambridge versus the London Badgers. Billy Ralston gets the start.
