Sr's Win Game 1 In Nashville
Nashville, TN - The Terriers got off to a great start at the 18u World Series in Nashville with a 9-0 drubbing of the Lumber Kings from Cincinnati. Right hander Jas Rakkar threw five shut out innings in a game that ended by the mercy rule. Jas mowed down hitter after hitter, striking out eight he allowed only one hit and did not walk anyone. Center fielder Nathan Loehle gave the Terriers a 1-0 lead in the second inning, with a solo homer that landed just under the scoreboard in left field.

Nathan had three hits on a day (HR, 3B, 1B, 3RBI, SB) where the Terriers would belt out 13 hits. Joel Stubbs had two hits as did Tanner Nivins. The biggest blow of the game came off the bat of cleanup hitter, Kevin Nickel (HR,1B) a majestic towering home run down the left field line. Graeme Scott, Brent Mitchell, Chandler McLaren and Graeme Carey all had hits in the relentless Terriers attack. Pool play continues Thursday with two games. Game one will be against Patterson Park from Ohio and the Terriers will face the Diamondbacks from Tennessee tomorrow afternoon. Benson Merritt has game one and lefty Austin Huibers has the ball in game two.
