Encarnacion’s mad dash a winner for Springfield

From the Daily Times posted 6/29/2019

Gabe Encarnacion can still get around the bases.

The former Interboro and Penn State-Brandywine standout, and Marple Newtown assistant coach, scored the winning run from second base on a slow roller to shortstop with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Springfield its third straight win in the Delco League with a 5-4 triumph over league-leading Upper Darby Friday night.

Nate Booth allowed one hit and fanned four in 5.1 innings to get the win.

Grant Kernaghan went all nine innings for the Blue Sox, while Vince Gasparo slugged a pair of homers and drove in all four runs.
