Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, July 15, 2011
The 16U Terriers advanced to the quarter finals of the New Era Cap Classic in Buffalo, NY thanks to two more victories on Saturday highlighted by Jake Gerovac’s grand slam in game two. In game one, the freshman Terriers took on the HBQVB Orioles from Queens’, NY.

The Terriers went up 2-0 in the bottom of the first before falling behind 4-2 heading in the home half of the fourth. Pat Coughlin started things off with a single before three consecutive walks to Tyler Hardie, Zach Choy and Cal Murphy. Nick Wideman ripped a double to score Coughlin and Hardie followed by an RBI single by Ryan Grant. By the end of the inning, the Terriers tallied five runs to take a 7-4 lead. The 16’s would tack on one more in the sixth on a Grant suicide squeeze. Kevin Lucas went 4 1/3 innings mixing in three pitches for strikes. Wes Siekris closed the game giving up just a single hit. In game two, the offense struck for five runs in the top of the first against the Burlington Double Blues, highlighted by four hit batters and a double by Tyler Hardie. The Terriers scored two more in the second and three in the third to stake the Dogs to a 10-1 lead. In the top of the fourth, with the score 10-2 Logan Stewart and Hardie smacked back to back singles while Zack Choy was hit for the second time in the game to load the bases. Jake Gerovac stepped in and smashed an 0-1 pitch over the left field fence for a grand slam, putting the Dogs up 15-2 in the process. Coughlin rounded out the scoring when he hit a double and scored on a Hee Do Kim single. Justin Carroll went the distance in the four inning mercy, scattering three hits. Next up is the quarter finals on Sunday morning.
