Hebling’s walk-off hit gave Upper Dublin a one-run win. It also salvaged another dynamic pitching performance by Ryan Besachio, who lasted 5.2 innings and allowed one unearned run.
“Ryan did a great job getting into the sixth. That was probably the longest outing we had this year,” Flying Cardinals coach Ed Wall said. “He really kept them off balance fairly well. He was in command of two his three pitches, which was a good mix that kept them off balance.”
Jason Greene pitched 1.1 scoreless innings to keep UD in position for the walk-off. Greene entered with the bases loaded in the sixth. He got Dillon Famous to fly out to center, keeping UD’s deficit at 1-0.
Upper Dublin tied the game in the bottom of the sixth. Hebling scored on Tommy Reilly’s bunt. Then Greene, with a man on second in the top of the seventh, got Ryan Kane to fly out to right fielder Ryan O’Gara. Then O’Gara threw out the runner at third. The double play ended the threat and kept the score tied, setting up the walk-off.
“Greene was a little loose in the beginning but settled in pretty soundly,” Wall said. “He threw a good inning against Quakertown yesterday as well, so we’ll use him more as the season progresses.”
Luca Amoroso drove in PW’s only run. Kevin Reilly scored it. Colonials starter Jake Kuruc did not allow a run in 6.1 innings. He also struck out six.
Upper Dublin (3-3, 2-2 SOL) hosts Springfield Township Thursday at 3:45. PW (2-7, 1-4 SOL) plays Hatboro-Horsham Thursday at 3:30.
