No. 2 Old Mill falls to No. 4 Arundel, 11-8

April 09, 1991|By Alan Widmann

Only one of the opposing left-handers in yesterday's Arundel-at-Old Mill showdown made it through the second inning. That was Old Mill's Doug Stockman, who hung on until Arundel's Scott Young doubled home two fifth-inning runs to break an 8-8 tie and boost the Wildcats to an 11-8 victory.

Young's two-out, two-strike liner to the fence in center field gave No. 4 Arundel (7-0, 4-0) the early lift over second-ranked Old Mill (4-2, 2-1) in Anne Arundel County 4A. It also made a winner of right-hander Larry Dobson (1-0), who excelled in relief and at bat.

Dobson came in after Zach Collins gave up eight runs (seven unearned) in less than two innings. He got the last out of the second on a comebacker, then blanked the Patriots on four hits the rest of the way.

Dobson was backed by A.J. Trout's superb diving catch in deep right with a runner on in the sixth. With the tying run at the plate and none out in the seventh, he got John Bussey to hit into a 6-4-3 double play.

Dobson (who started at designated hitter) also hit a three-run homer far over the left-field fence against Stockman in the first inning.

"The ball looked that big," he said, gesturing to describe a basketball. "When I hit it, man, it felt good. That started things off -- and I knew I would do well."

"I expected to pitch today, and I was ready to come in and do the job. I was jamming them, then mixing it up inside and outside," Dobson said. "This was probably our biggest win since the 1987 state championship."

Coach Bernie Walter was not pleased with his defense (two errors), but felt that Arundel "hit the ball very well [14 hits] in a real donnybrook of a game -- a great high school game because neither side gave in.
