Boyertown Takes Opener From Doylestown

Boyertown was able to take advantage of eleven Doylestown walks and three errors, as the Bears downed the Tigers 7-6 in non-league play at Bear Stadium on Saturday night.  Ben Tracy took the loss in relief for Doylestown, pitching 1 1/3 innings and giving up the Bears’ final two runs. Tracy struck out two Boyertown hitters, but yielded five walks in his time on the mound, including four in the final frame.  Travis Kreitz picked up the win by pitching the ninth, despite giving up two runs in his lone inning of work.  Kreitz did have a good night at the plate, doubling, knocking in two runs, and reaching three times on walks.  Ryan Schwager also did well at the dish for the Bears, reaching three times on walks and scoring twice, including the winning run on an Andrew Gehringer sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth.  Doylestown was paced by designated hitter Clay Sebesky, who had two hits and drove in two of the Tiger runs.  In spite of their shaky pitching, Doylestown was able to keep the game close with good base running and timely hitting.  They were also able to strand seventeen Boyertown runners on base. However, in the end Boyertown got enough from its offense to take the victory.


Doylestown opened the scoring in the top of the third when Ryan Clow was able to score Jake Poeske on a groundout after Poeske led off the inning with a single.  Boyertown bounced back with two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth to build a 3-1 lead.  However, a walk and three hits helped the Tigers draw even in the seventh, 3-3. Boyertown regained the lead in the bottom of the inning with two runs, and despite a single Doylestown run in the eighth, led 5-4 heading to the ninth.  Doylestown got a two run, two out hit from Sebesky to take back the lead, 6-5. However, the walks in the ninth proved to be too much, as the Bears tied it on a bases loaded walk, and won the game on Gehringer’s sacrifice fly, which was only the first out of the inning.


Doylestown will look to get revenge as the two sides meet again in Boyertown on Sunday at 2pm. This is a change to the schedule, as the game was originally scheduled for Doylestown’s home field at CB West High School.
