            After a nine-year absence, Perkiomen's American Legion baseball team will compete in the Region Two Tournament this weekend. The team qualified by finishing second in the Bux-Mont playoff tourney.

Legion League playoffs.

          The Indians secured a spot in the regional tournament for the first time since 2015 by defeating Pennridge, 9-6, in the semifinal round of the playoffs Sunday night in Quakertown despite committing three errors that led to three unearned runs.

            Evan Sands delivered the key blow, a three-run triple, during a decisive fifth-inning rally at Memorial Park Stadium.

            The following day, the host and top-seeded Blue Jays (21-1) completed their undefeated run through the tournament with an 8-2 victory over Post 184. Both teams have qualified for the regional tournament that begins Saturday at Emmaus Community Park, located at 1401 Shimerville Road. Lower Macungie is hosting the tournament.

            Perkiomen – which rebounded from a second-round loss to Pennridge two days earlier – will open against the Bethlehem Wanderers, the Northampton County League champs, at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. The defending regional and state champion Blue Jays will face Reading, the No. 2 team from Berks County, at 1:30 p.m.

            However, Boyertown handed the Braves a pair of 10-run defeats at Bonekemper Field. The Bear Cubs won 15-4 in five innings on Thursday, July 11 and 13-2 the following day to secure the title.

            "We didn't hit the ball well, and we didn't execute on defense," Upper Perk manager Pete Schramm said.

            Despite playing its worst two games of the season, the defending state champion Braves (25-6) will continue their season this weekend when they host an Eastern Regional Tournament. Schramm expressed confidence that they will return to the form that led to an 18-game winning streak.

            The top two finishers advance to the state tournament in Homer City. Upper Perk can qualify for the fourth straight year by winning its initial three games.

            The Braves are scheduled to open the eight-team double-elimination tournament at 7 p.m. Friday against the No. 2 seed from the Wyoming Valley League. They will be ...
