JT Breslin made some great catches out there. Horn had a couple good plays at short. Hebling had a huge pick at first on a bunt that saved us.

UD 0 Horsham 3

Suburbanonesports Report

Hatboro-Horsham 3, Upper Dublin 0
17 5 12 Horsham 6There’s a wealth of arms, and then there’s what the Hatters are working with. After 17 games, the Hatters’ pitching staff boasts a 0.99 earned run average. In 13 league games, the number is an even more miniscule 0.30.
“It’s been something else,” coach Pete Moore said. “We’ve given up eight total runs in 13 games.
“I’ve had really good pitchers. I’ve had Division One pitchers that have gone to Penn and Delaware and St. Joe’s and Seton Hall, but I’ve never had a staff that’s done what this staff has done as a group. It’s just incredible.
“At every level of baseball, it just comes down to, if your pitchers can throw and if you play good defense, you’re going to win games. We’ve been fortunate to have guys that can dominate the strike zone, and it’s really paid off.”
Alex Crim made sure things kept rolling, pitching Hatboro-Horsham to its fifth straight shutout, scattering seven hits over his seven innings of work. The junior, who is the third man up in the Hatter’s rotation, also struck out eight batters and threw 65 of his 95 pitches for strikes.
“I’ve been telling people about this kid we threw today pretty much all year – he’s in a 17 5 12 Horsham 7situation where he’s not getting as many innings as he would anywhere else just because of what Edge (Brian Edgington) and (Colin) Kennedy have been doing,” Moore said. “He’s a number one for a lot of people. Today was his first opportunity to get a league start. He went out and threw a shutout for us in a win that clinched at least a share of the league title.”
The Hatters can clinch sole possession of their first conference crown since 2012 when they travel to Cheltenham on Tuesday.
“Clinching a share of the tile is exciting,” Moore said. “We take a lot of pride in knowing that 2017 will hang on the baseball banner in the gym at Hatboro-Horsham forever.
“I have been coaching for 16 years, and that’s only the second time that we can say that. However, this group is greedy. They aren’t interested in sharing a tile. We want to win it outright on Tuesday.”
Eric Jester provided enough offense with a two-run double in the fourth inning while the Hatters tacked on an extra run in the fifth, thanks to Ryan O’Donnell. Colin Kennedy went 3-for-4 while Shaun Thomas racked up two hits.
Justin Horn took the loss for the Flying Cardinals and was one of three players to record two hits offensively along with Jason O’Gara and Joey Monaghan
Hatboro-Horsham (13-4, 11-2 SOL) will travel to Cheltenham on Tuesday, and Upper Dublin (5-12, 3-10) will be on the road at Abington on Monday for a non-league game.

Nick Pave grounded out to first, moving Dahme to third. Then Brian Murphy hit a grounder to second. The second baseman threw wide to first. Dahme charged home with the winning run.
“We put the ball in play with two outs. It was a tough play for the second baseman. He fielded it cleanly and just threw wide of first,” Springfield coach Dennis Primavera said. “The game was going our way. We should have put it away in the seventh.”
Upper Dublin tied the game at three in the top of the seventh. JT Breslin hit a grounder off the third baseman’s glove. Julian Gimbel scored.
IMG_2173The Flying Cardinals took a 2-0 lead in the top of the third. Matt Hebling grounded out to second, scoring Gimbel. Breslin singled to short, scoring Justin Horn.
Springfield answered with three runs in the bottom of the third, taking a 3-2 lead. Jackson Pauwels doubled to center, plating Robert Demerlis and Chris Kelly. Then Pauwels scored on an error by the first baseman.
That set the stage for the late inning drama.
Springfield was in position to win because starter Nick Pave allowed two earned runs in seven innings. He fanned eight. Dahme pitched a scoreless eighth.
“He pitched another good game. We never support him. He’s a gamer but he stays with it,” Primavera said. “Tim has pitched well this year, too.”
Upper Dublin starter Tommy Reilly gave up no earned runs in seven innings.
Primavera thinks this win keeps Springfield in the hunt for the District One Class 4A playoffs. The Spartans are fifth in the power rankings, and four teams make the playoffs. IMG_2029The Spartans are 1.2 points behind No. 4 Octorara.
“We probably have to win both,” Primavera said. “We have an outside chance if we win one. Anything can happen.”
