over West Lawn, Fleetwood and Lower Macungie over the weekend to remain near the top of the Berks County Area Youth Legion League standings.

            On Tuesday, the Braves rallied for a 5-5 tie against Spring City in a non-league game. Benjamin Godshall scored two runs for the team, which tallied three runs in the top of the seventh to avoid the defeat.

            Cole Pierce delivered a hit, scored a run and drove one in for the Braves, who scored twice in the second inning. Owen Williams tossed two shutout innings in relief.

            A 6-5 league loss to the Boyertown Bear Cubs last week couldn't keep Upper Perk down. Beginning on Friday, June 24, the team registered three league wins, starting with a 5-1 victory over West Lawn at Bonekemper Field.

            Jack Schramm delivered two doubles, scored a run and drove in a run for the Braves (13-2 league, 17-4-1 overall), who led 4-0 through three innings. Brody Weiss, Evan Sands and Brandon Godshall each drove in a run.

            On the mound, Pierce allowed just one hit and one unearned run over four innings. Sands pitched the final three innings, scattering three hits and striking out four.

            The next day, the Braves needed only five innings to defeat Fleetwood 10-0. Schramm went 3-for-3 with three RBIs and scored three runs. Brayden Adam delivered two hits and drove in two runs.

            Ryan Sink tossed five no-hit innings. He allowed just one walk and struck out five.

            On Sunday, Upper Perk defeated Lower Macungie on the road. Pierce registered two hits, including a double, and scored twice.

            Kyle Mazzie registered 11 strikeouts in five innings to earn the mound victory. In five innings, he allowed seven hits and issued three walks.

            On Wednesday, June 22, the Braves were defeated by Boyertown in a showdown of the league's top teams. The host Bear-Cubs scored three runs in the fifth inning to post a 6-5 victory.

            Upper Perk scored the tying run in the top of the sixth inning. However, the game was called due to darkness and the score reverted to the previous inning, according to Rossiter.

            Pierce finished with two hits and drove in two runs for Upper Perk, which built a 4-0 lead midway through the fourth inning and finished with six hits. Owen Williams scored twice and stole a base. Mazzie added two hits.

            Schramm absorbed the mound loss. He worked into the fifth inning, permitting seven hits and two walks.
