Mercury-Area Baseball Roundup: Boyertown tops Upper Perk in 10; Spring-Ford makes easy work of PV

It was a classic Boyertown finish.

Using a walk to open up the bottom of the tenth inning of a tie game, the Bears used to sacrifice bunt to get pinch-runner Michael Raineri over to second base. Two batters later, Raineri crossed home plate after Ryan Jacobs delivered the game-winning single to send Boyertown past Upper Perkiomen, 2-1, in 10 innings. Pat Hohlfeld got the win on the mound, where he pitched the final 3-2/3 innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three. Jacobs finished 2-for-5 with a run scored while Quinn Mason was 2-for-3.

Elias Gabel-Tripp took the loss, allowing a run on one hit and three walks in 3-1/3 innings. At the plate, Kacey Myers finished 1-for-4 with a double while Trey Livingstone had a hit and a run scored.

Spring-Ford 15, Perkiomen Valley 4 >> The Rams scored seven runs to open up the afternoon then added seven more in the top of the seventh to take a PAC-10 win over the Vikings.

Phoenixville 3, Pope John Paul II 1 >> The Phantoms gave themselves some needed cushion with a run in the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings to take down the Golden Panthers in PAC-10 play.
