Terriers 17U Take Two From The Ottawa Canadians
In game one of Saturday's twin bill, the Terriers 17U squad spotted the Canadians three runs in the top of the first before responding with one run in the bottom of the frame and then exploding for 13 runs in the bottom of the third inning. The 17U team posted 4 more runs in the fourth inning as they cruised to an 18 - 5 win. Matthew Beaton started and pitched 4 strong innings for the win while Lee Condon finished the final 3 innings in relief.
The offensive outburst was lead by Turner Spears (2 doubles, 5 RBIs), Toby Handley (3 hits, 1 RBI) and Jonathan Palumbo with a hit and two RBIs.
Game two started out as a pitcher's dual as both teams were held scoreless for 3 innings. In the bottom of the fourth, TJ Baker broke up the no hitter with a single, followed by a walk by Nick Dimpfel, a single by Averey Bet-Payumo and a bases loaded walk by Travis Seebrooke which scored the first run of the ball game. Mike Morley then doubled to left scoring Dimpfel and Bet-Payumo. Condon hit a ball sharply to third and a fourth run was added. The 17U team added two more runs in the bottom of the fifth on their way to the 6-1 win in the nightcap. Strong pitching performances by starter Bryce Schumilas (no runs, 2 hits) and reliever Palumbo held the nation's capital squad to only 1 run in the seven inning game.
The 17U team continues their four game series against Ottawa on Sunday, September 26th at Town Park in Port Hope starting at 11:00 AM.
