Kevin Nickel's Bomb Paces Terriers
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, July 15, 2009
Nashville, TN - Red hot Kevin Nickel hit his second home run of the 2009 World Series, leading the Terriers to a 7-2 win over the Dayton Patterson Park Classics in game two of pool play. Trailing 2-0 after three innings of play, Tanner Nivins started a fourth inning three run rally with a towering triple to the fence in left center field. Cleanup hitter, Nickel hit the next pitch up the middle to score Tanner to cut the lead in half.

Nathan Loehle (1B, 1B, 2RS) stepped in next and recorded his second hit of the game to move Nickel to third. Both he and Loehle would score on a single to right by Chandler McLaren (1B, 1B, 2RBI, RS), giving the Terriers a 3-2 lead. Chandler would also notch two hits in this one. Not to be out done by the insatiable Terriers offense, starter Benson Merritt settled in after a shaky first inning and began to plow through the Classics lineup. Benson struck out eleven and allowed just three hits in this complete game victory. The Terriers piled on four more runs in the fifth with hits from Brandon Dailey(1B,RS),Tanner Nivins (3B,1B,SB,2RS,RBI) and Kevin Nickel's(HR,1B,3RBI,RS) monstrous two run homer to left. Graeme Scott and Graeme Carey also had hits to round out the 11 hit attack. At 2 and 0 the Terriers will play for first place in pool play before the championship rounds begin tomorrow.
