18U Terriers Dominate With 11-1 Victory
The 18U Terriers added to their PBLO league lead with an 11-1 win over the Ontario Royals on Wednesday night at King's College in Oakville.
The Royals scored the first run of the game in the top of the second but the Terriers responded right away with three runs in their half of the inning.
Catcher Jeremie Veilleux lead off with a single through the five-six hole, went to second on Dreyden Sloat's walk and then Josh Simpson also walked to load the bases.
After Veilleux scored to tie the game, Owen Maize picked up an RBI with a sac fly to right, scoring Sloat. The rally continued when spark plug Connor Humphrey smashed a long RBI single off the right field wall to make the score 3-1.
Staked to a two run lead, starter Evan Harrison completed five innings of work, allowing just three hits. Lefty Jack Anderson fired the sixth and seventh, striking out four, then fresh off his return from the DR with Team Canada Ben Abram finished the game off on the mound.
The Terriers added to the lead when first- baseman Brandon Job hit a towering solo homer in the seventh to make the score 4-1. The game was then completely put away with a seven run bottom of the eighth. Josh Simpson, Owen Maize, Connor Humphrey, Brandon Job and Ryan O'Halloran all had hits in the big inning. Ryan also had an outstanding game on the defensive side at short-stop, making several excellent plays.
The 18s will play a four game set with the Ontario Yankees on the weekend.
