Ryan Kyle Calvert Hall, baseball
Kyle's four-hitter with nine strikeouts on Thursday stopped No. 4 Mount St. Joseph, 9-4, to put the third-ranked Cardinals in the driver's seat in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs. It was the All-Metro left-hander's second straight win over the Gaels and their ace Gavin Floyd and the third in four matchups in two years. Kyle (8-1, 1.91 ERA) has signed with St. John's in New York. Calvert Hall has to be beaten twice in the double-elimination tournament thanks to Kyle's clutch performance.
