BOYERTOWN, Pa. - Johns Hopkins' baseball season ended late Saturday night when its ninth-inning rally fell short in a 3-2 loss to DeSales University in the NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic tournament.

The Blue Jays finished the season with a 35-9 record, one win shy of the school mark.

Down 3-0 entering the ninth, the Blue Jays rallied. With two outs, Mike DePalma singled up the middle, then stole second. DePalma scored when Ben Taylor reached on an error by the second baseman.

Craig Cetta singled up the middle, sending Taylor to second. Joe Urban singled down the left-field line to score Taylor and advance Cetta to third, but the comeback ended there.

Russ Berger (Owings Mills) took the loss, allowing three runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings.
