Seto's Two Run Bomb Ices Victory
Premier Baseball World Series
The SR Terriers played what was perhaps their best game of the year Saturday night in Missouri. Looking for a shot at the final four of the 30 team event, the competition would be the unbeaten KC Prospects. The Terriers ended up handing them their first loss of the tournament with a 7-4 come from behind win.
The Prospects struck for three runs in the bottom of the first, then one more in the second to take a 4-0 lead.
It was short lived however, as a five run Terriers rally in the top of the third put them ahead to stay.
Pat Coughlin got the big inning going with a lead off single to left. Marcus Dicenzo followed with a walk and Matthew Plut with a line drive single to right, scoring Coughlin. Dicenzo scored the second Terriers run on a Toby Handley RBI, then Plut crossed on Kyle Thalheimer's RBI single.
Red hot Liam Wilson was next in, and he laced a double into the left field corner, advancing Kyle to third. That set the stage for a clutch two RBI single by Luke Tevlin and a 5-4 Terriers lead.
Right hander Cal Quantrill held onto the lead through five. He had five strike outs and walked just one.
In the top of the sixth, shortstop Geoff Seto put the game away with a two run blast that cleared the wall in left.
Zach Sloan retired the Prospects on five pitches in the bottom half of the inning, then Matt Beaton picked up the save with two strike outs and a routine fly ball out in the seventh.
That game completed championship round pool play in a three way tie between the Terriers, KC and New Mexico. Unfortunately the Terriers will not advance on the tie breaker run differential rule.
