Matt Betts No Hits The Royals !
After splitting their first two games of this summer's first tournament (a 3-1 win over Team Ontario and a 6-3 loss to the host Toronto Mets), right hander Matt Betts had the ball in game three versus the Royals. With the hopes of moving on in the annual Toronto Elite Tournament on the line, Betts came up with a stellar no hit performance in a 10-0 Terriers blowout. Matt had pin point control, walking only one, striking out four looking.

He had outstanding command of all three of his pitches, keeping the Royals hitters off balance all afternoon. The Terriers offense was led by outfielder Tanner Nivins who had three hits, a single, triple and his third homer of the tournament! Simon Clarke had two knocks, Joel Stubbs, Aaron Wagner, Kevin Nickel and Graeme Scott all chipped in with one. The tournament continues tomorrow with the Terriers facing the Quebec Canada Summer Games entry.
