Centennial's Jonathan Dupski (2-0) stretched his string of scoreless innings to 12 yesterday as he pitched six innings of two-hit ball while helping Centennial defeat host Atholton, 13-0. He struck out nine and has not been scored on this season.

The Eagles improved to 3-0 by banging out 10 hits, drawing 13 walks and taking advantage of five Atholton errors.

Steve Seh went 3-for-4 with two walks for Centennial. Alex Bechta was 2-for-3 with two walks and two RBIs. Dupski went 1-for-3 with three walks.

Tommy Barker and Steve Creasy each doubled off Dupski, who did not walk anyone.

Centennial scored six runs in the third inning and seven runs in the seventh inning.

Atholton dropped to 2-2.

Hammond 16, Howard 2: Nick Purdy of Hammond pitched four innings and struck out seven in a five-inning victory over visiting Howard.

The senior left-hander has a 2-0 record and 15 strikeouts in 11 innings.

He also stole his seventh base of the season and is 24-for-24 in steal attempts over two seasons.

And he went 2-for-3 at the plate.

Justin Heintz hit a three-run home run for the Bears.

Hammond improved to 3-1 this season, and Howard fell to 1-3.

River Hill 3, Reservoir 1: Charlie Klein threw a two-hitter and struck out five in a complete-game effort for River Hill as the Hawks defeated visiting Reservoir.

Derrick Nason threw a complete-game five-hitter for the Gators. It was Nason's second straight strong outing. He allowed six hits and no runs against Centennial last week in a game that was postponed in the sixth inning.

River Hill is 1-3 and Reservoir is 0-2.

Glenelg 12, Wilde Lake 2: Mike Corona pitched the Gladiators to a five-inning victory over visiting Wilde Lake for his first win this season.

The Gladiators improved to 2-1 by hitting Wilde Lake starting pitcher Kevin Showe hard and driving him from the mound in the third inning.

Seth Michael hit a game-tying RBI double in the first inning after Glenelg fell behind 1-0.

"It was mostly bloop hits and we made a lot of errors," said Showe, who will attend North Carolina-Greensboro next fall. The Wildecats fell to 1-3 on the season.

Mount Hebron 15, Oakland Mills 9: Jeff Carr and Kevin Cooke hit home runs as undefeated and No. 10-Mount Hebron had to come from behind to defeat visiting Oakland Mills.

The Vikings (4-0) used four pitchers to stop Oakland Mills (0-4), which hit six doubles and had a 4-1 lead going into the bottom of the fourth inning.

"We underestimated them," said Mount Hebron's Derek Chell. "They hit better than anyone expected. We got hitting from everyone on our team."
