Freshman Andrew Jensen's fourth hit scored pinch runner Jesse Trout (Arundel) with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning yesterday to lift No. 2 seed Salisbury to an 11-10 victory over top-seeded Emory in a Division III regional baseball semifinal in Martinsville, Va.

The Sea Gulls (36-11) remained unbeaten in the double-elimination tournament and advanced to the regional final for the first time since 2001. The Eagles (42-5) led 5-1 in the fourth and 10-8 in the eighth before Salisbury scored twice in the bottom of the eighth to force extra innings.

Johns Hopkins 7, Arcadia 3: Russ Berger (Owings Mills) held the Knights (27-16) to three runs through seven innings, helping the Blue Jays (40-3) stay alive in the Division III Mid-Atlantic Regional in Boyertown, Pa.

The Blue Jays lost to Rowan, 6-0, earlier in the day to fall into the losers' bracket, but the win over Arcadia set up a final-round rematch with the Profs (39-6) today at noon.
