Jrs Win Championship In Rochester!
Cal Quantrill gave up just one hit in five innings and got plenty of offense as the Terriers downed the Rockland Astros (Bronx NY) 8-0 in the semi final at St.
John Fisher College on Sunday. Lefty Lee Condon mopped up in the sixth of the mercy victory.
Aaron Loder, Nick Dimpfel and Hunter Galloway had two hits each in the rout which propelled the JRs into the championship game. TJ Baker, Aaron Palmer and Robert Grilli all chipped in with singles, and Hunter also had three RBIs.
With the victory the JRs faced the Syracuse Nationals, who had defeated the SR Terriers in the other semi final.
TJ Baker got the start and went three innings, before giving way to right hander Mike Morely. Mike pitched innings four through six, before giving way to Travis Laitar.
With the game tied 3-3 in the bottom of the third, red hot Hunter Galloway stepped in with the bases loaded. He would deliver a clutch two out, two RBI single to left center, scoring Travis Seabrooke and Nick Dimpfel.
The scrappy Nationals would not go quietly however, as they closed the gap to 5-4 in their half of the fifth. The Terriers got that run right back however, when Nick Dimpfel walked, advanced on a passed ball and eventually scored on a double steal.
Travis Laitar pitched a perfect seventh, sealing the 6-4 championship victory!
