Despite Max Bleznak’s 2-3 performance on Wednesday, the Upper Dublin Cardinals took a 11-1 loss at the hands of the Pennridge Rams at Upper Dublin High School. Helblung recorded the win for the Rams . He pitched three shutout innings. He also managed to strike out three, walk two and gave up no hits.
Jonathan Lew couldn’t get the job done on the mound for the Cardinals, taking a loss. He allowed six runs in four innings, walked one and struck out three. Pennridge added two more runs to their lead in the top of the fourth. Helblung doubled, scoring Herd. That was followed up by Naze’s double, bringing home Helblung.
Upper Dublin managed to score only one run in the fifth inning on a bases loaded walk by Ryan Melick. Pennridge increased its lead with five runs in the sixth. A clutch hit scored Herd to open the scoring in the frame. That was followed up by Finley’s double, scoring Dominic and Casey.
Upper Dublin’s loss makes their record 2-2. Hopefully, a couple days off can reload them for their away game versus Quakertown on Monday.
