BASEBALL: Pennridge rallies past Souderton

For Montgomery Media / MARK C. PSORAS Pennridge relief pitcher David Tatoian is congratulated by his teammates after retiring Souderton to preserve the Rams' 8-7 lead in the sixth inning of Tuesday's Suburban One Continental Conference game.
With Pennridge’s starting pitcher Evan Myers sitting in the dugout with an ice bag over a black-and-blue welt bigger than the baseball that hit him in the lower leg, it was up to the rest of the Rams to pick up their senior righthander.

Myers has helped put Pennridge into a playoff position, but evident by the liner he could not avoid and the eight runs allowed to Souderton in two plus innings, it was not his day. It was up to the remaining Rams to pick their pitcher up.

“We are in this together,” senior first basemen Jake Gordon said. “Whatever situation we get thrown in we are going to try and work out of it.”

The Indians’ senior lefty Brian Gibbs did not make it easy. He struck out the side in the first and seventh inning on his way to a complete game with 10 strikeouts. However, the middle innings mistakes allowed for the Rams to win 9-8 at Vic Alderfer Memorial Park.
