Srs Down Syracuse Chiefs
Matt Faulkner had the ball in game one Sunday at Binghamton University and would throw four outstanding innings of one hit ball before handing it over to Paul Anderson who would round out a 3-1 Terriers victory.
The game was scoreless into the top of the fourth when the Terriers rallied for three runs.
Second baseman Tom Byckowski got things going with a lead off bunt single to the right side. After Tom swiped second base, Jordon Mountford was hit by a pitch and Cole Peragine walked to load the bases. Right fielder Brian Doran was up next, and hit the first pitch he saw to the left center field gap for a sac fly RBI. Nathan Desouza made it 3-0 Terriers with a double into the right field corner scoring Mountford and Peragine.
The Chiefs answered with a run in the bottom of the fifth to close the gap to 3-1. After a scorless sixth, Syracuse had back to back singles to lead off the bottom of the seventh but the rally was snuffed by a 4-6-3 double play- Byckowski to Peragine to Mountford. This game was also highlighted by several excellent catches in center field by Blair Gignac.
Game two goes at noon.
The Terriers play Laurier University Wednesday night, then travel to Long Island for a game with Stony Brook University Friday. The Blue Chip Prospect tournament follows at Baseball Heaven.
