Pen Argyl-Northwestern

Pen Argyl grabbed an early lead then held on for a 3-2 win in the Tigers first league game of 2013.

The Knights scored a run in the first and two in the second. The Tigers scored a pair of runs in the third and threatened in three of the last four innings but couldn't get the break or key hit they needed.

"We came out and got those three runs and it happened to be enough," said Pen Argyl head coach Jake DeBoer. "There are usually a lot of runs crossing the plate up here. Coming away with a 3-2 victory feels good."

Down one run, the Tigers had a runner on base with just one out in the fourth, fifth and seventh, but couldn't score the run.

Northwestern's Brandon Eden reached base with a one-out single in the fifth, but Knights' first basemen Tanner Geake snagged Austin Yanek's line drive and tagged Eden to complete an inning-ending double play.

In the seventh, Knights relief pitcher Josh Persson, who gave up a one-out walk to Rich Perry, scooped two hard-hit ground balls to prevent a Tigers rally.

Perry, who got the start, gave up three early runs but settled then allowed just two hits over the last five innings.

The Tigers scored both their runs in the third inning. Nick Rodriguez led off the inning with an infield single and Collin Breidinger doubled. Two runs scored on Alex Smith's one-out single.

After that outburst, the Tiger offense seemed ready to break out. But the Knights, which used three pitchers in the game, didn't let it happen.

"I felt confident that we were going to have a shot," said Len Smith. "They made some plays in the field. We hit two up the middle and the pitcher made two great plays on hard-hit balls in that last inning."

Geake went 2 for 3 with an RBI and a run scored for the Knights. Starting pitcher Phil Ruggiero allowed five hits and a pair of runs over four innings to earn the win.
