Ben Abram Impressive In Spring Debut
RHP Ben Abram got the start Saturday afternoon at Baseball City in St.
Petersburg Florida. The competition would be the mighty University of Tampa JV team. Tampa is a NCAA D2 powerhouse, having won the World Series a record seven times.
Armed with his high eighties fast ball and knee buckling curve, Ben fanned three Tampa hitters in his two innings of impressive work. He allowed just one hit. Ben will get another start later in the week for the SR Terriers before joining Team Canada when he will pitch against the Toronto Bluejays next Saturday. The game is scheduled to be televised by Sportsnet.
Tampa scored four runs in the middle innings and held on for the 4-0 victory.
The Terriers other pitching highlight in this game was Evan Elliott's two innings pitched. He was perfect, and did not allow a run.
In 17U action the Terriers topped the Faith Baptist Red Sox by a 3-1 score. Owen MacNeil got the start on the mound and went two and two third innings. He struck out three, allowed just two hits and walked only one. He was relieved by Devon Yogendran who fired the final four and a third, striking out four along the way.
AJ Karosas had a double and two RBI at the plate. Michael Stremlaw also had an RBI single. Logan Pelletier and Brayden Heleno chipped in with hits of their own.
The Terriers also flashed some nice leather in this game, turning two key double plays.
The 15U Terriers dropped their first contest by a 6-3 score. Tyson Gomm and Elijha Hammill both had multiple hit games in the loss.
