Terriers Win Thriller In Alabama Finale
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, October 24, 2009
Livingston, AL - The gritty team from Memphis, TN took an early top of the first, 1-0 lead on Terriers starter Ted Hall.

That would be all they could scrape together till the sixth, when they scored their second run, to take a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately, Ted was being matched pitch for pitch by the Memphis lefthander who had Terrier hitters in knots. Through six complete innings, only Brandon Dailey, Simon Clarke, Cole Peragine and Mattingly Romanin could muster singles, but none back to back. After six solid innings, Hall gave way to Barinder Rakkar to pitch the top of the seventh. Rakkar allowed two singles and hit a batter, finding himself in a bases loaded jam, but with two out he forced the Memphis lead off hitter to pop up to third baseman, Cole Peragine. With their perfect five win, no loss record on the line, and only three outs remaining, first baseman Simon Clarke lead off the bottom of the seventh by getting hit by a breaking ball in the foot. DH, Brian Doran followed with a walk, and the Terriers had life! Orion Katayama was next in, and he moved the runners up one base each with a two strike bunt. The next pitch went to the back stop, scoring Clarke from third. 2-1. After Mattingly Romanin worked a walk off the now very tired Memphis lefty, Shawn Marshall executed a perfect bunt single up the third base line to score Doran and tie the game. Blair Gignac was next in, and he was intentionally walked to set up a double play, but Terriers lead off hitter, Christian Fearon would have none of that! Christian stepped in and laced the first pitch he saw to center field, scoring Romanin and seal the unbelievable 3-2 come from behind victory ! The Terriers close out the fall with a 12 and 2 record versus 18u competition, and a 4 and 6 record versus college competition.
