The Orioles have announced that they have trimmed their spring roster to 53 -- with 15 nonroster invitees -- by optioning catcher Michael Ohlman and left-hander Tim Berry to Double-A Bowie while reassigning catcher Brian Ward to minor league camp. Berry and Ohlman are on the club's 40-man roster; Ward was a spring training invitee.

With a runner on third and the score tied in the eighth inning of Randallstown's Class 3A North regional semifinal, Randallstown freshman catcher Shawn Rausch knew one thing. He didn't want to bunt."We had one out, and coach [Dave] Wright told me that I had one chance to swing away, then we were going to bunt," Rausch said. "I didn't want to bunt."Instead Rausch hit a soaring fly ball to deep center field, allowing Todd Pobletts to score from third to give No. 12 Randallstown (16-3) a 5-4 victory over visiting and 17th-ranked Patapsco (12-7)

When county high school boys lacrosse teams open the league season April 3, look for some high-scoring contests.Most coaches say their teams will score a lot of goals. They're just not sure their defenses can stop the opposition.More than half of the top 10 individual players in Harford are attack-minded. Here's a look at the county's best.* Ryan Arist (senior, defense, C. Milton Wright) -- A hard-working three-sport athlete, the three-year starter is even quicker this year. A physical defender with good stickwork and all-around skills, Arist is the heart of the Mustangs defense.

For the second straight game, unranked Patapsco had a ranked team on the ropes, only to get knocked out.On Wednesday, the Patriots (4-2) blew a five-run lead against No. 5 Perry Hall, the defending 4A state champ, in a loss.And yesterday, after holding a four-run lead in the first inning, and a six-run lead in the second, they allowed visiting and No. 16 Randallstown (6-0) to escape with a 14-7 victory.The Patriots had hammered starter Todd Pobletts (1-0) for five extra-base hits -- nine overall.

Patapsco Patriots1994 record: 6-12. Coach: Dave Ingle.Top players: Jerry Vecchioni, Sr., SS; Sal Greensfelder, Sr., OF; Charles Greensfelder, Sr., P/OF; Daryl Kalb, Jr., P/1B; David Willeford, Sr., OF.Outlook: Improvement in several spots should go a long way toward helping Patapsco reverse its fortunes. Greensfelder won his final four last year, and newcomer Kalb also will help. Defense is much better, especially up the middle with Vecchioni, and the hitting should be strong. Question marks at catcher and third base concern Ingle as do the number of unproven varsity players.

A second Orioles minor-league catcher has been suspended for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Progam. Michael Ohlman received a 50-game suspension for his second violation of the drug policy, the office of the commissioner of baseball announced Tuesday. The suspension was for a drug of abuse, which means it was not for use of a performance-enhancing drug. This spring, catcher Brian Ward also received a 50-game suspension. Ohlman's suspension will begin immediately, but he is currently recovering from a shoulder injury sustained during an automobile accident during spring training.
