Terriers Trounce Team Tennessee
Livingston, AL - The recipe for two more Terriers victories on Saturday at the University of West Alabama was outstanding pitching, air tight defense and timely hitting. The Terriers moved their record to 4 and 0 on the trip, with the double header sweep of Team Tennessee.
Roberto Suppa was excellent in game one, a complete game two hit 4-2 Terriers victory. He struck out seven and walked just two.
The Terriers had eight hits including triples by Christian Fearon and Brandon Dailey.
Catcher Adam Godo had two clutch singles for RBIs. Graham Tebbit, Simon Clarke and Orion Katayama all had singles to round out the offense.
Game two belonged to right hander Connor Smith. He mowed down the Tennessee hitters through all seven innings, and did not allow a hit. He faced just 25 batters, dominating with his 85 mph fast ball and knee buckling curve.
The Terriers big rally in this game came in the second inning. They would score four runs, triggered by hits from Jordan Mountford, Simon Clarke, Orion Katayama and a double from Brian Doran.
With the Terriers leading 4-0 in the fourth, Tennessee scored their only run, but catcher Jordan Mountford got that right back in the top of the fifth with a line drive home run over the right field fence. The Terriers added an insurance run in the sixth, with an RBI single from Shawn Marshall, scoring speedy Blair Gignac from second base.. That would seal the 6-1 win.
The Terriers will face the Alabama Heat Sunday morning.
