In three postseason games last week, including the 15-3 Class 2A State championship romp over Hammond High of Howard County, O'Brien was 10-for-12 with 9 RBI.

The junior designated hitter missed hitting for the cycle in Saturday's state championship and ended up with a single, double, triple, five RBI and two runs scored. Needing a dinger in his final at-bat to complete the cycle, O'Brien grounded out.

O'Brien drilled a pair of doubles, knocking in three runs in Monday's Region III final over Frederick Douglass of Prince George's County, 16-1.

In the semis, O'Brien, who usually bats seventh in the Eagles' hard-hitting lineup, had a two-run triple to propel a four-run first inning and subsequent 13-3 rout of Middletown (Frederick County) at McCurdy in Frederick.
