Baseball: Pine-Richland heating up

Written by Keith Barnes on .

After a few early season stumbles it appears that Pine-Richland has finally gotten itself on track and it ready to make a postseason push.

On Friday, the Rams finally closed the gap on North Hills as they handed the Indians their first Section 1 loss of the season with a decisive 6-0 victory at Herb Field in Ross Township. It was the third victory in a row and fifth in the last six games for Pine-Richland (10-3, 4-2), which took on Seneca Valley yesterday in another section matchup.

To get to this point, the Rams needed strong efforts from their top players, including Tim Laylock, Maxx Harpalani and Tyler Woodrow, but they will have to continue to come up big if they are to supplant the Indians down the stretch and win their first Class AAAA section title since 2014.
