Srs Still Rolling!!
Rome, NY - The SR Terriers close out their July tournament schedule this week in Rome NY. They will be looking for their third tournament championship of the summer at the 24 team Sportzone Invitational Tournament and Showcase. The SRs are fresh off winning the CNY Thunder Classic last weekend.
The opener this week was a very well played game against the always tough Syracuse Chiefs. Starting pitcher Brock Beirness was outstanding, spinning a complete game shutout, in a 4-0 Terriers victory.
Brock allowed just two hits and walked only one.
The Terriers offense was spread around nicely with hits from Robert Grill, Cole Peragine, Brian Doran(2B) David Head, Zack Sardellitti(1B,2RBI), Aaron Loder, and Steven Jannetta.
Game two pitted the Terriers against the Rhode Island Rebels.
The Rebels took an early 4-0 lead, but the Terriers eventually battled back for a 5-4 victory. Luke Sinclair got the win, as he pitched four strong innings, before David Head came on in the seventh for the save.
Once again the offense came from all over the lineup. The Terriers first two runs were scored on a Brian Doran triple, and singles by Steve Jannetta and Cole Peragine.
Trailing 4-2 in the fifth, David Head stepped in the box with the bases loaded and delievered a clutch two RBI single through the left side to tie the game.
The Terriers scored their winning run in the bottom of the sixth. Cole Peragine singled, advanced on a Bruce Yari single up the middle and scored on Jordan Mountford's RBI bullet to right field.
Game three goes Thursday morning versus the Tacomic Rangers. Right hander Travis Laitar has the ball for the Terriers.
