East Pennsboro's Nick Embleton went 3-for-3 at the plate in a win over West Perry 12-5 Monday afternoon, racking up over 100 hits for his career (102). Embleton had one RBI and three runs scored in the win, while Zach Garlinger tallied two runs and three RBI's.
The milestone hit, believed to be the first time a Panther has reached 100 career hits, came on a double.
"It didn’t even really sink in while I was up to the plate, I was just trying to go up there with the same approach as every other at-bat to hit the first good pitch I saw," Embleton said via Twitter direct message. "Once I got to second base, everyone was extra loud and I realized what I just accomplished. It means a lot to get 100 career hits and to be the first known player to do it in East Penn history. I know there have been a lot of very good players to come through here, and it feels awesome to see all my hard work pay off. It was a humbling experience."
