No. 1 St. Joe stopped, 7-4, by Arundel

April 07, 1996|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Number three had to pitch like a number one and senior Derek Loosararian was up to the task as No. 4 Arundel upset top-ranked Mount St. Joseph, 7-4, yesterday to win the latter's 13th annual Jack Conley Tournament.

Loosararian (2-0) pitched the Wildcats (5-2) into the seventh inning before Kurt Light came on to get the final two outs with two Gaels (6-2) aboard. Loosararian, who scattered seven hits and struck out eight, bested St. Joe ace Ryan Baker and took tournament MVP honors.

"We had opportunities and didn't take advantage," said St. Joe coach Dave Norton.

The Wildcats knocked out Baker (57 pitches, five earned runs, seven hits) in the third inning after Steve Sylvester (2-for-2, two RBIs) lined a two-out double off the left-field fence.
