Seniors Split Against Astros
One day after walking off one of the top teams in the Country, the 18U Terriers were eliminated by the very same team, losing 6-2 to the East Cobb Astros.

The loss evens the Seniors record to 2-2 at the Sandlott World Series in Nashville, TN. Like game one, the Terriers played the nationally-ranked Astros to a stand-still, working from just one run behind as late as the fourth inning, against a roster filled with college commitments to Vanderbilt, Stanford, and Auburn universities. Righty Kyle Scobel looked very good in his four innings of work before giving way to LHP Tyler Riehl who did not allow an earned run. Much of the Terriers offense was shut down by the Astos pitching and solid defense. UMASS Amherst commit Grant Okawa supplied the only runs of the game with a two RBI single while Drew Dickerson (Macomb CC) continued his torrid pace of the summer. Both the Junior and Senior teams will travel home for a couple of days before completing their summer schedule next weekend in Erie, PA.
