18U Drop Cincinnati Force
The 18U Terriers moved their record at the 18U Dinger Wood Bat World Series to 1-1 with a 5-3 decision over the Cincinnati Force. In tough conditions, LHP Robbie Wilson went 4 2/3 innings with Kyle Scobel closing the game. After Zarley Cina singled and scored on a Drew Dickerson RBI in the first inning, the Terriers never looked back.
In the fourth Jake Sims was hit by a pitch, Jake Foden singled and Joe Tevlin scored them both with a line drive into left centre.
Grant Okawa singled after, but both he and Tevlin were eventually stranded. In the 5th, Sharan Rasan walked, was bunted over by Daito Kojima, then scored on Cina's double. The end of the game was marked by tough pitching conditions as one run was walked around in the 7th by the Force pitcher. Kyle Scobel grinded out 2 1/3 innings finishing the game, helped by excellent defensive plays from Cina and Sims in the 7th.
Because of weather, both the 17U and 18U afternoon games were cancelled. As a reuslt all teams are moving on to single elimination bracket play beginning Saturday morning. The Seniors play the South Oakland A's at 9am while the Junior Terriers take on Canadian rival Toronto Mets at 1:30pm at beautiful Miami University.
