16S Smash 11 Hits In 10-2 Win
Merritt Island , FL - The 16U Terriers headed into today's game versus Drummondville at 2-2 on the spring and were able to push their record to over. 500 with a convincing 10-2 victory.
Michael Stremlaw, Liam Bavington and Mihai Aron split the game on the mound combining for five strike outs, allowing just four Drummondville hits.
It was a nine run second inning that did all the damage and put the game in the books early.
Jack Iannuzzi, who has had an outstanding trip so far got the big rally going with a lead off double to the left center field gap. He went to third on Connor O'Halloran's productive ground out to first, then scored on Ayden Cooke's RBI single that eluded the Drummondville shortstop.
After a Brayden Heleno walk, Connor Carr- Matthews stepped in and singled through the five-six hole to load the bases. A walk to Matt Ward followed by a single to left by Michael Manning made it 3-0 Terriers. The score quickly jumped to 5-0 on the next pitch as a Stephen Phillip's RBI sac fly scored Matthews and then Ward on an over throw. The Terriers continued to pour it on after that when Campbell Ellis, Owen MacNeil and Dante Wright all crossed on a towering three RBI double by Christian Bottero.
The Terriers scored again in the third with three consecutive singles by Brayden Heleno, Connor Carr- Matthews and an RBI by Aiden Pickering. Drummondville scratched out a couple of runs late in the game but it was not nearly enough.
The 15U and 18U Terriers have night games while the 17U Terriers will put their perfect record on the line in a DH on Tuesday.
