Sr's Advance To Semi- Final In Nashville
With his Terrier career winding down right-hander Ben Abram delivered his team yet another dominating performance on Saturday in Nashville at the SANDLOTT (Select Amateur National Developmental League of Travel Teams) World Series. Ben is off to the University of Oklahoma in a few weeks to begin his journey as a NCAA D1 student athlete.
In today's quarter-final game versus the 17u Kalamazoo Maroons, Ben went the distance, allowed just two hits and struck out an amazing 11 Maroon hitters.
The Terriers came away with a 5-0 win.
The Terriers jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second when Nicholas Parsons hit a shot through the five-six hole to lead off the inning. He advanced to third on a Max Von- Gemmingen single to right then scored on Nolan Gallo's bullet line drive RBI sac fly to left.
In the bottom of the fifth with one out Sawan Bhatnagar drew a walk then advanced to second on a Brenden McQuinn flare to right. Connor Humphrey followed with a walk to load the bases for DJ Johnson. DJ beat out a double play ball that he hit at the second baseman allowing Sawan to score the Terriers second run.
Dylan Whittaker put the game away in the bottom of the sixth with a clutch bases loaded double that scored Nicholas Parsons, Nolan Gallo and Cristian Forgione.
The SRs have won nine straight and will play in the semi-final at 1:30pm CT.
