Rhys Montgomery Hurls Perfect Game In Nashville
The 15u Terriers got off to a great start at the SANDLOTT World Series today with a 6-0 win over Canes Baseball (OH).
Although the offense scored six runs, the story of this game was lefty Rhys Montgomery. Rhys masterfully weaved his way through the Canes lineup with pinpoint fastballs blended with a precision mix of sharp secondary pitches. Rhys threw just sixty pitches on his way to a perfect game.
He struck out twelve and left the rest to his defense. Twenty-one up, twenty-one down!
The Terriers staked Rhys to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. With Ethan Cane at second base, Ethan Magloughlin smashed an RBI double cashing Cane for the games first run. Later in the inning with two out Cameron Pollard had a clutch single to plate Tyson Gomm and Magloughlin.
Tyson picked up two RBI of his own in the next inning with a double, scoring Kawshik Murali and Cane. The Terriers tacked on their sixth run in the fourth when Evan Farrell crossed on another Ethan Magloughlin RBI single.
