Severn Post 276 qualifies for championship round

July 31, 1992

Severn Post 276 qualified for the championship round of the Continental Amateur Baseball Association 18-and-under World Series yesterday with a 9-7 victory over Nevada in the completion of a suspended game at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmans.

The game was stopped because of rain Monday afternoon with Severn leading, 6-5, in the second inning. When play resumed, Post 276 used a three-run sixth inning to seal the win and assure itself a place in this weekend's eight-team, double-elimination round.

Russ Curry, Todd Locklear and Mike O'Brien each knocked in a run during the inning, but Severn coach Willie Dominguez said "pitching was the determining factor."

Ed Nalley of Glen Burnie High School started the game Monday and picked up where he left off yesterday.

He gave up nine hits and struck out five.

"I feel joyful; that's the only word I can think of to describe it," Dominguez said.

Severn (3-2) rebounded from a pair of losses Wednesday.
