Gilman's Greg Lotz picked a fine time to earn his first win of the season.

The right-hander limited the third-ranked Mount St. Joseph baseball team to one run on five hits to help the unranked Greyhounds pull off a 7-1 upset yesterday at home.

Lotz didn't allow a walk and gave up a bases-empty home run to Gaels right fielder Gavin Floyd in the fourth inning.

"Control had been a problem for him in some earlier games, but he hit his stride," said Gilman coach Marty Meloy. "He did a great job of making them hit the ball, and we didn't make too many errors in the field."

At the plate, the Greyhounds (5-3, 3-3 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association) were led by shortstop Ambrose Wooden, who went 3-for-4 and scored two runs, and first baseman John Sheff who had a triple and an RBI.

No. 2 Fallston 14, Joppatowne 4: Shortstop Steve Little, first baseman Kevin Davis and right fielder Dave Gonano each hit home runs in a 10-run third inning to power the Cougars (7-0) to victory.

No. 1 Archbishop Spalding 3, No. 12 Institute of Notre Dame 0: Pitcher Jessica Saunders held the Indians (5-3) to five hits and earned a shutout for the visiting Cavaliers.

No. 2 Chesapeake-AA 5, South River 0: Pitcher Katie Nelson struck out nine, and right fielder Courtney Taylor was 2-for-3 with three RBIs to lead the visiting Cougars to a win against the Seahawks (3-6).
