Pa. Boys: Thurs. Pa. boys: Hatboro-Horsham wins in 11th

Posted: April 12, 2014

The Hatboro-Horsham baseball team does not play another game until Monday. Good thing, because if anyone deserves a long weekend, it is the Hatters.

Hatboro-Horsham has played 20 innings in the last two days and scored just three runs. The Hatters have won both games.

Thursday, it was Eric Lane's turn to play hero. His line-drive single to right field in the 11th inning gave Hatboro-Horsham a 1-0 win over visiting Central Bucks South in a Suburban One Continental game.

Kevin Barron started for Hatboro-Horsham and pitched seven innings, striking out nine and allowing seven hits. Freshman Colin Kennedy made his league varsity debut and earned the win with four innings of one-hit relief.

Over the 20 innings - the Hatters beat Pennridge, 2-1, on Wednesday - Lane, Kennedy, Dave Brown, and Kevin Barron have allowed just one run.

Council Rock South's Matt Radwanski threw eight shutout innings. He allowed two hits and struck out six.

Chris Crookham started the 11th by reaching on an error. He advanced to second on a hit-and-run by John O'Malley to set the stage for Lane's game-winning hit with one out.

Elsewhere in the Suburban One Continental:

Brennan Snyder, Sean Loughery, and Nick Martino each went 2 for 4 to lead Central Bucks West to a 4-3 victory at Pennridge.

Jared Melone went 2 for 3 and scored a run, and North Penn got past visiting Quakertown, 5-4. James Witner allowed one earned run in four innings to pick up the win.

Suburban One National. Jordan Angjelo fired a one-hitter as Neshaminy beat visiting William Tennent, 3-0. Angjelo struck out seven and walked three.

Suburban One American. Bill Hetrick's bases-loaded double in the fifth keyed a four-run inning as Springfield (Montco) topped visiting Norristown, 11-10. Marten Pauwels drove in five runs.

Catholic Red. Alex Stewart knocked in six runs, including the game-winner in the ninth inning, as St. Joseph's Prep downed host La Salle, 14-12. The Prep trailed by 10-4 entering the seventh inning but got three straight hits with one out. Andrew Magiera's three-run double briefly gave the Hawks a 12-10 lead.

Will Latcham struck out 14 in a complete game and hit a three-run homer to carry Cardinal O'Hara past visiting Roman Catholic, 9-4.

Catholic Blue. Matt Mandes went 2 for 3 with three RBIs to power host Archbishop Wood over Neumann-Goretti, 12-2.

Austin Hill went 2 for 4 and knocked in two runs for the Vikings.
