Behind four shutouts -- including two no-hitters and a one-hitter -- the Gunther-Kazmarek Little Orioles reeled off five straight wins over the weekend to repeat as champions of the second annual Doc O'Malley Tournament for 14-and-under youth baseball.

Little Orioles' pitchers did not give up any runs until the championship game when they defeated Gambrills, 7-2, Monday night.

The Little Orioles won Division I of the eight-team, round-robin tournament with a 4-0 win and Gambrills copped Division II with a 3-1 record, the loss coming in a cross-division game, 18-0, to the Little Orioles on Sunday.

Mike Evans and Mike Ziegler combined for a one-hitter with seven strikeouts Thursday to blank the (2-2) Harford Sox, 8-0. Ziegler retired the last nine batters in a row. Chad Duncan was 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI while Billy Walter knocked in two runs and Mike McCarthy's single scored the first.

The Little Orioles got back-to-back no-hitters Saturday with Ziegler and Curtis Smith combining in a 12-0 win over Columbia (0-4), and Jared Vogt firing a four-inning no-hitter to blank the Yankee Rebels "B" team, 10-0. The Yankee Rebels finished 3-2.

Chuck Garner was 2-for-2 with three RBI and two runs scored, and Walter doubled in a run against Columbia. Chris Calvert had two hits, including a bases-empty home run, and Vogt hit a three-run homer against the Yankee Rebels.

Calvert picked up the win Sunday as the Little Orioles erupted for 10 runs in the first inning in their 18-0 romp over Gambrills.

Calvert, Vogt, Garner and Duncan had two hits each, Chris Rice knocked in three and Craig Haney had two RBI.

Vogt went the first five innings in the championship game, yielding three hits, two runs, walking three and striking out 10. Smith followed for 1 1/3 innings and Ziegler came on with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the seventh and got a double play.

A bases-loaded single by Glenn Vladich in the second gave Gambrills a 2-1 lead, but the Little Orioles scored three runs in the third and sixth innings. Calvert had two hits, Walter an RBI double and Garner a double. Duncan and Shane Thompson each knocked in a run.

The Atholton Reds (3-2) won the consolation game, 7-6, over the Yankee Rebels "B" team.
