This one was pretty special, the LaSalle University-bound Jenkins said. I love playing for these coaches and with my teammates. They've been great. This is our first regional as a team and it was their first as a coaching staff, so I wanted to get it. Described by manager Tom Kahn as calm, cool and collected, Jenkins set down Muhlenberg's lineup in order three times over the final four innings. His toughest inning came in the first when he worked around a leadoff single and a two-out error. He also pitched around a leadoff error in the eighth. Jenkins was aided by center fielder Cullen Wadsworth's tremendous diving catch in deep left-center field with one out in the ninth inning. I was mixing it up a lot, trying to keep them off-balance and let my defense work, said Jenkins, whose repertoire of pitches includes a fastball, curveball, slider and changeup. I felt good from the start. I haven't thrown too much this summer so it felt good to be out there. You can't say enough about Michael, Kahn said. He's a beast. He's unbelievable. In the second inning he lets a bunt fall so he can pick it up and turn a double play. He's such a heady player and he's always calm out there. South Parkland (16-7-1) needed Jenkins to be at his best because its offense struggled against Muhlenberg starter Braydon Keller.In fact, Keller matched Jenkins zero-for-zero for the first five innings. South Parkland broke through thanks to two sixth-inning errors by Muhlenberg . Jake Patridge reached on an error to start the inning and scored when Wadsworth followed with a single to right-field that was misplayed into a three-base error.It was enough for Jenkins. I really felt it would be enough, Kahn said. When they got a runner to second in the eighth I was really nervous but Michael's so in control, so calm. Then, Wadsworth made that sensational catch in the ninth and I felt a whole lot better. I sure feel a lot better today than I did [Sunday] night. The ninth inning Sunday evening was a disaster for South Parkland.It led 5-2 but Souderton scored three times to tie it Derrick Pouliot Jersey. Then, the Bux-Mont runnersup won it in the 11th inning. With a win in that game, South Parkland would've advanced to tonight's winners' bracket final against host West Lawn. Instead, Kahn's club has to battle back through the losers' bracket.Jenkins, though, is confident he and his teammates can pull it off and reach Wednesday's championship game. Definitely, he said. We have tons of pitching left and we're confident in everyone we have to throw. If we can get the bats hot and keep playing defense, it's looking good for us. Kahn said Central Catholic graduate Nate Leaswitch will get the Day 4 start for South Parkland. He's a big-time pitcher, Kahn said. He's done a great job for us and we'll need him to continue to do that tomorrow.
