Chesapeake tops Old Mill

April 20, 1995|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,Sun Staff Writer

Sophomore Jared Vogt won his third game as streaking Chesapeake (7-3) upset No. 9 Old Mill, 8-5. It was the No. 20 Cougars' seventh win in the last eight games after an 0-2 start.

"It's a team with an entirely different attitude than the one that started the season," said Cougar coach Jim Simms. "The first two games our attitude was horrible, a lot of whining and crying, and I sat them down, and told them I don't go for that.

"Since then, their attitude has been great and we're winning. Jared has been extraordinary for a sophomore, a lot of confidence and poise."

Vogt (3-1) scattered 10 hits, nine by the first four hitters in the Patriot order -- Joe Barnes (2-for-4), Tim McGurk (3-for-4), Chuck Manns (3-for-4, two doubles) and Brian Bogle (1-for-4).

Mixing his curve and fastball well, Vogt struck out nine, walked two and hit one. The right-hander took an 8-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh, compliments of catcher Luis Falcon's grand slam off reliever Dave Watts.

The Cougars had built an early 4-1 lead with two runs in each of the second and third innings off Old Mill starter Tim McGurk (1-2). Falcon, Corey Dlugokeski, Matt Michalowicz and Ryan Moore each drove in a run.

Vogt struck out catcher Shane Thompson to start the Patriots' last at-bat. Joe Barnes went down a second straight time swinging, but strike three eluded Falcon with Barnes reaching first.

McGurk got an infield hit and Manns drilled a two-run double to center. Bogle followed with his third homer of the season to make it 8-5 with one out.

Vogt got Mark Wissman to ground out and walked Adam Tetlow to bring up Jason Sieklicki. Sieklicki, who had the only other hit off Vogt, smoked the first pitch over the bag at first. Dlugokeski backhanded it and stepped on first to end the game.

* Glen Burnie 6, North County 4: Visiting Glen Burnie (5-3) took advantage of seven errors by North County as it defeated the No. 2 Knights (7-1). Rocky Newton and Brad Emge each had two hits for Glen Burnie.
