Jr Terriers Win Opener In Indy
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Thursday, July 19, 2012
The 16U Terriers opened the Midwest Championships in Indianapolis with a 5-4 win over Louisville Baseball Club in a rain shortened game. After spotting LBC a 2-0 lead in the top of the second, the Juniors stormed back with 5 runs in the home half of the inning. Michael Moffatt led off with a single and advanced to second on a passed ball. Kristian Trunzer then ripped a one out single to score Moffatt.

Evan Hanoun then laced a double to left centre field to score Trunzer and tie the game at 2-2. Then with 2 out, Matthew Plut hit a 2 run single scoring Hanoun and Curtis Windsor who reached base on a walk. Plut then executed a delay steal and advanced to third on an errant throw from the catcher. A couple of pitches later, Plut plated the 5thTerriers run on a passed ball. Louisville cut the lead to one in the top of the third but that was as close as they would get as the skies opened up in the bottom of the fifth. With the score at 5-4, the umpires called the game due to rain and lightning. Moffatt led the offense with 2 hits and a run scored. Brendan Fox pitched 5 innings allowing 2 earned runs while scattering 3 hits and striking out 2. The Terriers take on the Portage Storm out of Michigan at 6:00 pm on Friday night.
