Beirness Spins A Gem
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, September 20, 2009
Long Island, NY - Despite losing their final game in the Blue Chip Prospects tournament, pitcher Brock Beirness pitched his best game in a Terrier uniform.

Beirness lasted 8.1 innings, needing just 83 pitches to do so. After going down 1-0 to the Massachusetts based Mulden Bambinos, the Terriers tied things up in the top of the fifth when Pat Coughlin and Adam Hoover drew one out walks. Kaleb Leff then took a pitch in the leg to load the bases before another walk by Mitchell Kay scored Coughlin. The Bambinos took the lead again in the bottom of the fifth before the Terriers came back with two of their own in the top of the sixth to make the score 3-2. After Paul Howarth reached base with a hit to left field, Michael Morely reached on a fielders choice when the Bambinos through Howarth out at second. Morely would steal second base to set up an RBI double by Mark Willush. Willush then came around to score on a Travis Laiter single. But the Bambinos would tie the game in the bottom of the sixth, and threatened to win the game in the bottom of the seventh. With one out and runners on first and second, third baseman Aaron Loder started a 5-4-3 double play to force extra innings. In the bottom of the ninth, the Bambinos had their lead off hitter reach base on an error. After recording an out the Terriers then intentionally walked the next two batters to load the bases before walking home the game winning run. Barinder Rakkar came in to pitch the ninth, replacing Beirness who ended the game with one strike out. Left fielder Mitchell Kay had the other RBI for the Terriers. The Terriers would like to thank Coach Matt Senk and Stony Brook University for their hospitality over the weekend. Next up is a four game set with the Oakville Royals next weekend. Games one and two are at Riverside in Cambridge with the backend of the double header at Millcroft fields in Burlington.
