Brophy's Clutch Triple Paces Srs
Rochester, NY The Terriers remained undefeated Saturday with a hard fought 4-1 victory over the Syracuse Nationals at the CNY Thunder Wood Bat Battle tournament in Rochester NY. Lefty Zach Sloan gave his team five innings of excellent work, after leaving the game with it tied 1-1. Zach had struck out four and allowed just two hits. Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the second, TJ Baker drew a walk and advanced on a Pat Coughlin fielders choice.

Then with two out, he raced home from second on a Marcus Dicenzo RBI single to tie the score. Matt Beaton came on in relief of Sloan in the top of the sixth and retired the Nationals in order. That set the stage for a three run rally in the Terriers half of the inning. Liam Wilson lead off with a double into the corner in right field, then scored the go ahead run on Cal Murphy's RBI single. After Logan Stewart walked, Jake Osborne layed down a perfect sac bunt to move Cal and Logan to second and third. DH Joel Brophy followed with a thundering triple for two RBIs and a 4-1 Terriers lead. Beaton allowed a runner with one out in the seventh however he induced a game ending 4-6-3 double play- Dicenzo to Seto to Baker. The tournament playoff rounds begin Sunday morning.
