Spring Training Update - Sr's Hang Tough In Spring Opener
The SR Terriers opened spring training with a tight 2-1 loss to the South Florida Wild. It was a very well played game by the Terriers who had just two outdoor practices under their belt before the opener.
Right hander Alex Wall got the start and was outstanding through five innings of work. Alex threw just 64 pitches, striking out seven while scattering just four hits.
The Wild jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.
With runners at first and second and nobody out, Jacob Martins and Reagan Manley turned a slick double play, however the next Wild hitter dunked a pitch into left field for the games first run.
In the top of the sixth Jacob Martins reached on a walk then advanced on a Joe Tevlin single. First baseman Dreyden Sloat was next in and he would deliver a clutch line drive single to right, scoring Martins and tying the game. Unfortunately the Wild scored the game's winning run in their half of the sixth to seal the 2-1 victory.
In 16u action the Terriers fell 10-5 to the Elev8 Baseball Academy. Nick Parsons, Jamal Armstrong and Sebastian Santos all had hits in their spring training opener. Parsons scored two runs and Armstrong had two RBIs. Santos and Kyle Lev also chipped in with RBIs. Kevin Millar tossed two shutout innings on the mound.
All four Terriers teams (15u/16u/17u/18u) are in Florida for the program's 11th annual spring training trip. Each will play 7 games and practice 5 times.
