Livingston, AL - Matt Betts threw a complete game in the opener, a 6-4 Terriers victory. Trailing 2-0 after just one half inning of play, the Terriers threw up a five spot in the bottom of the second. Simon Clarke got the rally started with a single to left center. That was followed by another single by catcher, Adam Godo. Mattingly Romanin advanced both runners with a sac bunt and a collection of Mississippi errors, pass balls and a balk call followed to push the Terriers into a 3-2 lead.

After Cole Peragine and Brandon Dailey reached base, DH Jordan Mountford kept the rally going when he ripped a ball to the fence in right center for 2 RBI's and a 5-2 Terriers lead. The Prospects scratched for two runs in the top of the fourth, but that was as close as they would get, as righty Matt Betts got the final six Mississippi hitters in order. Christian Fearon, Brandon Dailey, and Jordan Mountford(3RBI) all had two hits in this game. Lefthander Billy Ralston took the mound in game two, which was no contest. Billy faced just 16 batters in a 14-0, five inning no hit win. The only batter that reached was hit by a pitch. The offense came from up and down the lineup. Christian Fearon, Brandon Dailey, Graham Tebbit and Jordan Mountford all had two hits. Shawn Marshall, Brian Doran, Blair Gignac and Cole Peragine had one. The Terriers face Team Tennessee Saturday at noon for another two game set.
