BASEBALL: North Penn mercy-rule's Coatesville

For Montgomery Media / MARK C. PSORAS North Penn's Dylan Borawski delivers a pitch during Thursday's PIAA Class AAAA playoff game against Coatesville.
When North Penn’s Jared Malone walloped an offering by Coatesville pitcher C.J. Martinez in the bottom of the fourth inning, the blast appeared to have a chance of exiting Spring-Ford’s Ram Stadium.

Instead, the ball bounced just short of the center-field fence and bounced over for a ground-rule double.

“Got to hit the weight room for next year,” said the Knights’ sophomore first baseman.

The near miss of a home run was about the only thing that did not go North Penn’s way offensively against the Red Raiders Thursday afternoon in their PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinal contest. Melone finished 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles, while Bobby Scott drove in five runs as the Knights rolled past the District One champions 11-1 in six innings.
