16U Terriers Win 3 Of 4 Against Niagara
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, June 19, 2011
The Junior Terriers had a great week, getting contributions from everyone in the line up. On Wednesday night, with only 12 players the Terriers pounded out 12 hits helping them to a 13-9 victory. Zack Choy led the way with a 4 for 5 night. Choy led the game off with a single before coming around to score later in the frame. In the fourth inning, Choy and Cal Murphy slugged back to back triples before DH Logan Stewart smacked a 2 out 2 run home run to make the score 9-1 Terriers.

Choy capped off his night with a 2 run homer of his own in the top of the 7th. Niagara made it interesting in the bottom of the 7th inning, scoring 7 times, but were unable to complete the comeback. Kevin Lucas was outstanding, going six complete innings, striking out 7 batters while giving up just 2 runs. In game two, the Terriers were trailing 2-1 for most of the game and couldn’t muster any offense. However, in the top of the 7th, right fielder Nick Wideman delivered a 2 out 2 run double down the left field line to score Pat Coughlin and Jake Gerovac. With the Dogs up 3-2 in the bottom of the 7th, the game was suspended due to darkness. Both teams agreed to resume the game on Saturday morning before their double header. Fast forward to Saturday morning with the Terriers up 3-2, and one Niagara runner on base. Brock Bierness, fresh off his trip to the Junior Sunbelt Classic in Oklahoma, came in and shut the door, ending the game with two consecutive strikeouts. Game 3 of the series was played right away and the Junior bats were hot again as they recorded 9 more hits en route to a 7-5 win. Hee Do Kim and Bruce Yari were both 2 for 4 while Kyle Thalheimer was 2 for 3. Gerovac and Tyler Hardie chipped in with singles. The Terriers dropped the last game of the series 12-9. After being down 7-3 in the fifth, the Juniors battled back to tie the game behind a run scoring triple by Gerovac. However, Niagara stormed back with 5 more runs in the 6th to put the game out of reach. Choy had 2 singles and 2 runs scored while Thalheimer and Justin Carroll each had one hit a piece. The Terriers play their last series of the season this weekend against the Toronto Mets before embarking on their Summer tournament schedule beginning next week in Nashville, Tennessee.
