Pitching Carries Post 184 to Six-game Win Streak
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Once Aidan Keyser figured out his delivery issues, he pitched with efficiency. Meanwhile, Perkiomen's American Legion baseball team utilized a potent offense to defeat Hatfield last week.

            The Indians needed only five innings to defeat Post 933, 13-3, in the Bux-Mont

League on Thursday, June 27. Keyser went the distance, allowing just two earned runs. He permitted four hits while striking out three.

            Jordin Dice and Evan Sands led a 10-hit barrage for the Indians (10-1 league, 12-3 overall), which has won six straight and remains in second place in the league standings behind defending state champion Quakertown. The team's top two hitters each finished with two hits.

            "We're hitting the ball very well right now," Manager Rick Rossiter said.
            Keyser struggled with his command during the first inning. He appeared to be rushing in his windup. According to Rossiter, Keyser struggled in his pre-game bullpen.

            "Sometimes Aidan doesn't take the pre-game bullpen as seriously as he could," the manager said. "But he recovered nicely."
            Keyser allowed the Titans' initial five hitters to reach base without making contact. He walked three and hit two with a pitch to force home the two runs.
            Keyser picked off a runner at second base for the first out. Following a mound visit, he struck out the next two hitters to end the rally.
            Post 933 scored an unearned run on three hits in the third inning. Keyser stranded the bases loaded on a solid play by Sands, Perkiomen's shortstop.

            Keyser allowed just one unearned run the rest of the way. He finished with three strikeouts.  "When he's on, he's very good," Rossiter said.

            Dice, the Indians leadoff hitter, finished with three hits, three RBIs and scored two runs. Sands scored three runs, drove in two and stole two bases.
            Jack Schramm, the No. 4 hitter added two hits, scored twice and drove in two for Post 184, which overcame a two-run deficit by scoring 12 runs in consecutive innings. Kyle Mazzie scored twice and drove in a run.
            Dice delivered two triples in the fourth inning for the Indians, who trailed 3-1 midway through the third inning. However, they batted around in their final two at-bats to secure their fourth straight victory.
            In the third, Post 184 sent 10 hitters to the plate and scored five runs on three hits. Schramm drove in a run on a hit batsman.
            Brayden Adam's two-run single put the team ahead for good. Braden Rieg's RBI grounder capped the flurry that started with a strikeout wild pitch.
            The team added seven runs in the fourth inning. Dice's first triple, down the left field line, drove in three runs. Sands, Mazzie and Schramm each followed with an RBI hit.

            On Saturday, June 29, the Indians swept a doubleheader from Chal-Brit to extend their winning streak to six games. Jack Schramm's no-hitter highlighted the sweep.
            In the first game, Schramm faced just one hitter over the minimum in a 1-0 victory. He struck out five. Chal-Brit's only base runner came on an error in the third inning.
            Braden Rieg drove in the only run. His single in the first inning scored Jordin Dice. Adam, Jackson Long and Rieg had the team's other three hits.
            In the nightcap, Liam Merola and Rieg led Post 184 to a 13-4 victory. Merola, the No. 9 hitter, finished with three hits and three RBIs. Rieg earned the mound win by allowing four unearned runs on six hits over five innings.
            Perkiomen overcame five errors by building a 9-4 lead through five innings. Sands and Drew Graf each scored three runs, while Rieg drove in two runs.
