Post 184 Eliminated from Bux-Mont Playoffs
Written by Staff Report

            Perkiomen's American Legion baseball team could not post a victory in the Bux-Mont League playoffs over the weekend. The team suffered consecutive season-ending losses.

            Perkiomen opened the playoffs with a 7-3 road loss to Plumstead in the opening round of the playoffs on July 7. Peyton Borchelt posted three hits for the Indians, who fell behind 7-0 through three innings.

            The Indians scored twice in the sixth inning to avert a shutout. Borchelt crossed the plate in the seventh inning.

            Two days later, Post 184 absorbed their sixth consecutive defeat against Doylestown. It allowed 11 runs in the seventh inning in a 14-4 loss at Quakertown Memorial Park Stadium.  "That's not the way I wanted the season to end," Curley said. "But with so many of our guys going on vacation down the stretch, it really hurt, and we could not catch a break."

            Jake Ankele, Brandon Mazzie and Zach Gehman each posted two hits for the No. 5 seeded Indians, who led 4-0 through four innings. They sent nine hitters to the plate in the fourth inning, collecting five hits. Gehman's two-run double highlighted the flurry.

            "I really thought we could have pulled out the win over Doylestown," Curley said. "Our guys put up a fight."

            The Tigers, seeded No. 6, pulled within 4-3 in the top of the sixth inning on three hits off Gabe Reptsik, who lasted six innings on the mound. Reptsik had permitted just three hits through five innings and struck out five.  "Gabe threw a great game," the manager said.

In the seventh, Post 210 sent 16 hitters to the plate. It scored 11 runs off Zach and Blake Gehman.

"It was the craziest thing I've ever experienced in baseball," Curley said. "Doylestown just hit. We couldn't do anything about it."
