More from Day 1 at Diamond Nation Tournament in New Jersey
Team BC 18U College Prep have a successful Day 1 of the Tournament!!
Team BC came out swinging in our first game of the 18U College Showcase Tournament in New Jersey. Diamond Nation ball park is a great facility and the boys were excited to be part of this elite showcase tournament. We knew coming in the competition would be stiff, but our boys have battled through many tough games to get them to this point. After all, we are provincial champions! We had every confidence in our Team BC boys!
Carter Harbut was starting pitcher and pitched another complete shut out game. Did we expect anything less? Our offence came through and we ultimately beat the Staten Island Orioles 9 0 in six innings. Highlights: Gernon 2RBI in-the-park home run; Merritt 2RBI triple; Dykstra double; singles by Carpenter, Moorman; single bunts by King and Ray. All in all our boys came through and showed these teams that we belong in this competition!
Game 2 followed shortly thereafter against the FAA Pheonix. Iversen pitched 6 innings, allowing 3 runs. Ray came in to close: 4 batters, 2 strike outs with the game ending on a great defensive play from Hall (second base) and Merritt (short stop) in the top of 7th. Offensively, Gernon 2 for 3; Pankratz 2 for 3 and singles by Dykstra and Carpenter.
We are so proud of our boys and today’s success! We celebrated with a meal at Sonic!
Game 3 scheduled for Tues at 2:15 pm against All Out Underclass who also finished 2 and 0 today.
Keep up the great work Team BC!!
