Nine Run Fifth Paces Terriers Over Tn Longhorns
Nashville, TN - The SR Terriers kept their World Series hopes alive with a convincing 15-4 win over the Tennessee Longhorns Thursday in Music City.
The game was scoreless into the fourth however the Longhorns struck for four runs in the bottom half of the inning off lefty Adam Anderson.
Adam pitched well, striking out five, but was let down by his defense. He would however pick up the win in this one.
The Longhorn lead was very short lived , as in the top of the fifth the Terriers racked up nine hits for nine runs.
Speedy Blair Gignac got the rally started with a line drive single to left. After Cole Peragine also singled, Brian Doran was hit by a pitch, loading the bases for David Head. David has been on fire at the plate and once again he would come through with a blast to left field that one hopped the fence, scoring two runs. The relentless Terriers attack continued with hits and RBIs from Nathan DeSouza, Zack Sardellitti, Mattingly Romanin, Steve Jannetta, Cole Peragine and Brian Doran.
Aaron Bain threw a scoreless bottom of the fifth, facing just three hitters. Steven Dressler got an inning of work in the bottom of the sixth after the offense had tacked on six more runs.
The SRs advance to the playoff round of the 40 team tournament on Friday.
