Lefty Huibers Spins Gem In Welland
Welland, Ont The youngest Sr Terrier took to the mound Tuesday night in Welland and threw five excellent shutout innings in this Terriers victory. Sixteen year old Austin Huibers got plenty of support from his teammates as they mounted a seventeen hit assault on the Rebels pitching staff. Austin cruised through his five innings of work, striking out eight, walking just one and allowing only two hits.

He gave way to Riley Bohar in the sixth, to close out the one sided affair. The offense struck early and often, as the Terriers lead 6-0 after just two innings. Nathan Loehle scored the first run of the game on a Brandon Dailey RBI triple to the right center field gap. DH, Kevin Nickel cashed Dailey on a single, and then Kevin scored on a Graeme Carey RBI. Catcher Aaron Wagner started a second inning three run rally with a single, advanced on a Graeme Scott single and then they both scored on RBI singles by Kevin Nickel and Jeff Hunt. Nickel made it 6-0 on a Graeme Carey RBI. The red hot Kevin Nickel lead off the Terriers fourth with a single to center field, and then came all the way around to score on a Jeff Hunt RBI triple. Jeff made it 8-0 when he crossed on an RBI single by Jas Rakkar. The Terriers would continue to tack on runs en route to this 13-1 win. Brandon Dailey, Kevin Nickel, Jeff Hunt, Graeme Carey, Aaron Wagner and Graeme Scott all had a multiple hit night. The win extends the Terriers lead atop the PBLO to nine wins against just one loss. Right hander Tavis Bruce gets the start in their next game Wednesday night in London versus the Badgers.
