The numbers for Marten Pauwels would look improbable for batting practice, let alone playoff baseball. Yet, the statistics do not lie: The senior slugger from Springfield (Montco) turned the District 1 Class AA tournament into his playground.
Pauwels put up another huge performance Tuesday as Springfield claimed its fourth straight championship by beating New Hope-Solebury, 8-6, at Cairn University.
Pauwels went 3 for 5 with a triple, a home run, and five RBIs. In two playoff games, he was 6 for 8 with seven RBIs and three extra-base hits.
