Junior Terriers Sweep Ottawa Canadians In Four Game Series In Ottawa
After taking a twin bill from the Canadians on Saturday the Junior Terriers continued their winning ways by taking two more on Sunday from the National Capital Squad.
In game one, the Terriers scored one run in each of the first two innings through lead off walks to Aaron Palmer and Matthew Beaton. Each of these walks was followed by several miscues by the Canadians which resulted in a 2-0 lead. In the sixth inning Travis Seabrooke led off with a walk and this was followed by four consecutive singles by Nick Dimpfel, Matthew Beaton, Turner Spears and Geoff Seto. This resulted in a 6-0 lead for the Terriers. In the seventh inning Aaron Palmer doubled and scored on Travis Seabrooke’s RBI single. Lee Condon started and went five strong innings for the win. Mike Morley for the second day in a row closed out the final two innings to ensure the win.
In game two there was no scoring until the fifth inning when Hunter Galloway doubled to left. Travis Laitar bunted down the third base line and the Ottawa pitcher threw late to third and all hands were safe. Galloway scored on a passed ball and Laitar scored on a double by Matthew Beaton. There was no further scoring until the top of seventh when the Canadians mounted a comeback. After a single and triple the Canadians later loaded the bases with none out but pitcher Jonathan Palumbo was able to induce three consecutive pop ups to earn the save. TJ Baker threw five innings for the win.
The Terriers travel to Nashville this coming week for their final tournament of the season at the Sandlott World series.
