Then, on Monday, the Panthers suffered their first league loss, 9-1 to Plymouth Whitemarsh. They responded with a workmanlike win over the Flying Cardinals on Tuesday.
“It was a big win. We gotta have short memory and learn from mistakes. The next game is always the most important game, that cliche. We got the timely hitting we haven’t been getting the last couple games,” Quakertown coach Jon Pallone said. “It’s tough to win so many games in a row. When you get so many wins, the ball bounces right, you get calls. PW came out and executed. The pitcher threw strikes and they hit. We didn’t play our best. You have to play your best every day in the Suburban One League. We played pretty well today. Threw strikes, ran the bases well, hit balls hard.”
