Balkwill's Grand Slam Paces Terriers To Saturday Sweep Over Royals
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, May 17, 2009
Catcher Larry Balkwill hit a first inning grand slam in game one Saturday evening at Glen Abbey Park in Oakville, and the Terriers never looked back all night. Larry's grand slam was set up by a Brandon Dailey single, a Kevin Nickel HBP and a Jeff Hunt walk. With the count full, Balkwill launched a fast ball over the fence in left center field to give the Terriers and early top of the first 4-0 lead.

In all the Terriers would blast 16 hits en route to a 13-3 victory. Shortstop Brandon Dailey had four hits, two doubles and two singles. Balkwill, Graeme Carey, and Kevin Nickel each had two. Third baseman Jeff Hunt also had two, one of which was a towering home run to right. Righthander Jas Rakkar would get the win, striking out six Royals through five innings of work. Austin Huibers got the final six outs to round out the one sided affair. In the night cap the Terriers cruised to a 6-0 shutout, back stopped by an outstanding pitching performance by lefty Riley Bohar. Riley would go five strong shut out innings, striking out eight and walking only one. Tavis Bruce would get an inning of work in the sixth and Matt Betts would mop up the seventh. The Terriers had eleven hits in this one, lead by Graeme Scott, who had three. Aaron Wagner and Joel Stubbs both had two. Kevin Nickel, Jeff Hunt, Graeme Carey and Nathan Loehle all chipped in with one. The DH sweep moves the SR Terriers PBLO record to 11 and 1.
