Doylestown Beats up on Perkiomen
Written by Dave Teufel, Correspondent

Perkiomen's pitching hit hard by Tigers

 Perkiomen's Vince Boyle creates a cloud of dust as he slides towards third base in last Friday night's game one of a doubleheader against Quakertown.

        After sweeping a doubleheader against Quakertown last Friday night, Perkiomen ran into a buzz saw Sunday evening as they fell to Doylestown 13-2.
        The Tigers wasted little time in getting to starter Ian Benz as they tagged the young left hander for three first-inning hits that resulted in an early 3-0 lead for the visitors.
        Perkiomen appeared prepared to shake of the rough start and tried to make a game of it by posting a run of their own in the bottom half of the inning.
        Devyn Kerr got things started when he reached on an error by the Tigers second baseman. Kerr would be erased at second on a force out off the bat of James Boyle. But when Vince Boyle and Chad Force drew back-to-back walks, Post 184 had the bases loaded with only one out. It would take another error on a ground ball to second to plate the only run that Perkiomen could muster in the inning.
        Doylestown looked to blow the game open in the third when a bloop single and three walks made the score 4-1 with the bases still loaded and nobody out. Adam Ney came on in relief of Benz and stopped the bleeding with a strikeout, and then got the Tigers nine hole hitter to ground into an inning-ending double play.
        Perkiomen cut the lead to 4-2 in the bottom of the third as Kyle Saylor singled home Vince Boyle who had reached on a fielder’s choice.
        Doylestown went ahead 6-2 in the fourth, and the score remained the same until the seventh when the Tigers sent 12 men to the plate, scoring seven times to put the game away.
        The Tigers took advantage of 10 free passes from Perkiomen pitchers to go along with their 13 hits. Perkiomen had five hits; two off the bat of James Boyle.
        The loss to the Tigers came following a sweep of a doubleheader Friday night against visiting Quakertown.
        In the first game, Perkiomen scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the third to take a 3-1 lead. They would score three more in the fourth to make the score 6-1. Neither team would reach pay dirt again as the game ended in a 6-1 win for Post 184.
        Brendan Fitzgerald went the distance for Perkiomen (7IP-7H-1ER-0BB-4K) while Chad Force was 2-4 with a pair of RBI for Perkiomen. Collin Utterback suffered the loss. Matt Roberts led the Quakertown offense going 2-3 with the team's only RBI.
        In game two Perkiomen starter Chad Force scattered three hits in yet another complete game win for Post 184. Force struck out 11 while walking three in his seven innings of work. Brandon Kulp was the hard luck loser allowing just two earned runs while striking out eight and walking six. Ryan Pilgermayer tossed the final two innings, giving up just one unearned run.
        Utterback collected all three of Quakertown’s hits in the game while Force led Perkiomen going 2-4 with an RBI.
        Perkiomen's next home game in league play is June 26 when they host Pottstown at 7 p.m.
