Right-hander Austin Clark worked wonders in the rain and visiting Archbishop Spalding took the lead in the fourth inning and stayed ahead to upset No. 2 Calvert Hall, 5-4, in a rain-shortened baseball game Wednesday.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, the Cavaliers (17-13) led 7-5 and the Cardinals (25-5) had two runners on and two outs when the umpire called the game because of sloppy field conditions. The rules state that the score reverts to the last complete inning, the sixth.

Clark worked five innings, gave up three hits, two runs and two walks and struck out two.

"The key to us winning the game was Austin Clark," assistant coach Will Smith said. "He held Calvert Hall to one hit over four innings."

Blake Saathoff led Spalding's offense, going 2-for-3 with a single, a double and an RBI.

With the game tied at 1, the Cavaliers scored twice in the fourth inning to take the lead for good. The win moved Spalding up to third seed in the coming Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs, where they will host Loyola or St. Paul's in Friday's opening round at 4 p.m.

Calvert Hall, the No. 2 seed, got a bye, as did top-seeded Gilman.

No. 4 North Harford 6, Rising Sun 0: Winner Kevin Mooney's bid for a perfect game was spoiled by a bunt single in the seventh, but he struck out 17 and got the shutout and the visiting Hawks (19-2) claimed the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship. Mooney stayed perfect with a 7-0 record.


No. 9 Chesapeake-AA 6, No. 15 Glenelg 3: Freshman Emily Muller improved to 8-2 and Kimberly Federowicz (3-for-3) had a triple, two RBIs and two runs scored as the host Cougars (16-5) claimed the District V championship.

Mount de Sales 3, John Carroll 0:Right-hander Ashley Lesniewski (10-8) gave up three hits and three walks and struck out eight to shut out the Patriots in an IAAM A Conference quarterfinal.

No. 9 Broadneck 18, North Point 2: Zoe Earnest and Elli McNulty each had a hat trick and the host Bruins (12-2) cruised past the Eagles of Charles County in the opening round of the Class 4A-3A East regional playoff.
