Terriers Take Down Wildcats To Advance To Championship Game
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, July 23, 2011
Lefthander Travis Seabrooke got the start in the semi final game of the 17u Sandlott World Series on Sunday morning in Nashville. The Terriers opponent would be the Keystone Wildcats, and they would strike early with a run in the top of the first. It didn't take long for the Terriers to strike back, as lead off hitter Toby Handley was hit by a pitch and with two out would eventually advance to third on a Nick Dimpfel single.

He later crossed to tie the game on an RBI single by Hunter Galloway. The Terriers were not done there however, as TJ Baker was next in and he proceeded to crush a triple to the left center field gap for two RBIs and a 3-1 Terrier lead. The Wildcats closed the gap to 3-2 when they scratched for a run in the top of the third. The Terriers could not extend the lead in their half, and when the game went to the fourth Matt Beaton came on in relief of Seabrooke who had struck out three. In the top of the fifth the Wildcats leadoff hitter reached base for the third time, and scored for the third time to tie the game at three. It looked like the game was going to unravel for the Terriers in the top of the sixth when the Wildcats loaded the bases with nobody out. Travis Laitar was then called upon to pitch out of the horrific jam, and he would deliver with a strike out , and 4-6-3 double play ( Spears- Grilli- Baker). With that huge momentum swing, Toby Handley lead the bottom of the sixth off with a double into the right field corner, advanced to third on an Aaron Palmer ground out and scored the go ahead run on a clutch two strike single by Nick Dimpfel. Geoffrey Seto came on to pinch run for Nick and added an insurance run when he came around to score on Hunter Galloway's RBI double. Laitar punched out all three Wildcat hitters in the seventh to preserve the 5-3 victory. The Terriers will play the Connecticut Tides in the championship game Sunday afternoon. Cal Quantrill gets the start for the Terriers.
