Mount St. Joseph's Zack Kuehne went 4-for-5 with two RBIs and hit one of his team's three home runs in a 15-10 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference victory over visiting Gilman yesterday.

All-Metro shortstop Alan Strick and teammate Joey Sargent hit their eighth and ninth home runs, respectively, as part of the fourth-ranked Gaels' 13-hit attack. Strick went 3-for-5 with three RBIs. Sargent got on base four times, with a hit and three walks.

Mount St. Joseph (17-6 overall, 9-3 league) was an earlier 9-1 loser at Gilman but has won four consecutive games.

The Gaels also took over sole possession of first place in the conference, benefiting from yesterday's 12-1 loss by St. Paul's (9-4 league) to Calvert Hall -- the Gaels' opponent tomorrow.

Matt Moynihan had a three-run double for the Gaels, All-Metro Gavin Floyd (2-for-3) doubled in one run, and Rusty Potee also doubled for Mount St. Joseph, whose winning pitcher was Dave Byroade.

The Gaels led 10-2 after two innings and 12-5 after three with Kuehne having his biggest day since getting five RBIs against Glen Burnie.

"Overall today, we did well in the field, at the plate, and on the mound," Kuehne said. "We had a good day as a team."

Gilman (7-7) was led by Dave Kardian, who hit a couple of two-run home runs, and losing pitcher Scott Gehring had a three-run triple.

No. 3 Severna Park 11, No. 1 Arundel 6: Second-team All-Metro center fielder Derek Dixon hit his Anne Arundel County-leading sixth home run and had three RBIs, and senior right-hander Josh Banks (7-0) struck out nine batters in four innings of relief.

Arundel junior Chip Ziegler hit two home runs to tie Dixon with his sixth homer.

Severna Park (16-2, 13-1) clinched a berth in next Thursday's county championship game at Joe Cannon Stadium. Arundel (14-4, 10-4) is front-runner for the other berth.

Towson 3, No. 7 Perry Hall 2: Four-year starter Mike Williams (4-0-1) went the distance, striking out 12, walking four and giving up five hits in the fifth straight victory for the unranked Generals (13-2), who upset of the visiting Class 4A state runner-up Gators (11-5).

Neil Koch had a bases-empty home run and Andre Gardner tripled for Towson.

John Schaffner singled and later scored the game-winning run on a sixth-inning fielder's choice with the game tied at 2.

No. 8 Hammond 10, No. 14 Glenelg 8: Hammond rallied three times to beat Glenelg and stay one game behind Howard County-leading Mount Hebron with three games to play.

After their first county title since their only one, in 1991, the No. 8 Bears (14-3 overall, 12-3 league) couldn't relax until after the final pitch, as the Vikings' Chris Forney worked a 3-2 count off Hammond reliever Brian Brewer with two outs and two runners on base.

Brewer knocked down Forney's line drive and threw him out, almost extinguishing two-time county champion Glenelg's hopes for a threepeat.

City 6, Patterson 3: Right-hander Jay Lawson (3-1) struck out eight in four innings and pitched a three-hitter, as the Knights (7-2) moved into a first-place tie with Patterson and Mervo in the Baltimore City League standings.

Ben Becker went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBIs, and Maurice Travers went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs. Becker and Travers each scored.

No. 7 C. Milton Wright 10, Aberdeen 0: Wright's Laura Siler improved her record to 13-0 for the 14-0 Mustangs with her third no-hitter of the season -- her second against the Eagles.

Siler, coming off a 3-0 shutout of Fallston (10-3), struck out 12 batters yesterday.

Dulaney 12, Owings Mills 1: Right-hander Kirby Goad got her first victory in four tries on a no-hitter, striking out nine in six innings and walking four.

Deana Zornow went 3-for-3 with an RBI and scored twice to lead the Lions (5-7) at bat.
