Srs Set Off Fireworks At Canada Day Tourney
The SR Terriers continued their torrid play over the Canada Day weekend at the Annual Mets Tournament in Toronto. Led by the hot bat of first baseman Simon Clarke, the Terriers won the round robin portion of the tournament, secured a bye and advanced directly to the semi finals Saturday afternoon. Simon had seven hits and nine RBIs in three games.
Roberto Suppa got the win in a 14-2 win over Ottawa.
Orion Katayama threw five complete innings in a 15-0 romp over the Mets 16s and Lucas Scocchia went five in yet another victory by the mercy rule, 13-3 over Quebec. Aaron Wagner, Anthony Vacca, Cole Peragine, Brandon Dailey and Jordon Mountford each had two hits in the win over the cross province rivals.
Matt Betts got the start in the semi final game versus Windsor. He would go all seven in an 11-7 Terriers win. This was a back and fourth affair. Windsor took an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first, but the Terriers bounced right back with hits from Cole Peragine, Brandon Dailey, Jordon Mountford and Simon Clarke. The Terriers trailed 5-2 after three, but took the lead for good in the fourth with a four run rally. Anthony Vacca sealed the game in the bottom of the sixth with a three run homer to right center field.
The SRs have now won 22 of their last 24 games and will play in the championship match on Sunday morning at Bond Park in Toronto.
