Junior Terriers Beat Toronto Mets
The Junior Terriers defeated the Toronto Mets 4-2 at historic Howard Talbot Park on Wednesday night.
The Terriers opened the scoring in the top of the first when Elliott Curtis singled and was driven in by Ashton Roy’s towering triple to deep right field. After falling behind 2-1 in the fourth inning the Terriers scored a single run in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to seal the win.
The pitching duties were shared by seven different Terrier pitchers including Christian Lazar who was credited with the win. Lazar entered the game with the bases loaded in the fourth inning and einduced two ground ball outs from the Mets hitters to end the inning. In the fifth, with one out and the Mets threatening with runners at first and second, Lazar executed a perfect back door pick off with first basemen Shane Clarke. On the play, the runner at second base tried to move up to third but was gunned down by Clarke to complete the unusual inning ending double play.
Lefty Tyler Riehl shut the door in the seventh to earn the save.
The Juniors continue their Fall season with a four game series at Ottawa this weekend against the Canadians
