Junior second baseman Scott Krieger hit home runs in his first two at-bats yesterday, helping third-ranked Calvert Hall right itself after a shaky start to beat No. 14 St. Paul's, 13-8, and advance in the winner's bracket of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference baseball championships.

Krieger hit a bases-empty homer in the first inning, then a three-run shot to highlight a seven-run second inning that erased a 6-1 St. Paul's lead. He finished 3-for-4 with three runs for the host Cardinals (23-8).

Left-hander John Kibler earned the win in relief, entering in the second inning to cool off the Crusaders' fast-starting offense. Kibler (7-1) mixed an effective changeup with a sharp fastball to limit St. Paul's to two runs in the final five innings.

Archbishop Spalding 3, Mount St. Joseph 1: Andrew Germuth tossed a four-hitter to get the host Cavaliers past the Gaels in an A Conference winner's bracket game. Spalding advanced to face top-seeded Calvert Hall on Tuesday.

Mount St. Joseph fell into a loser's bracket meeting with McDonogh on Monday.
