Entering Thursday's action, No. 9 Atholton, Oakland Mills and Reservoir each had a shot at a share of the Howard County baseball championship. The visiting Raiders defeated Wilde Lake, 6-3, to claim the title. The host Gators beat the Scorpions, 4-1, in Thursday's other county game. Had Wilde Lake beaten Atholton and Reservoir defeated Oakland Mills, all three teams would have finished with 12-5 league records. After dispatching Wilde Lake, the Raiders (13-4) only had to wait to see if Oakland Mills would beat Reservoir to clinch the other half of the title, or if Reservoir would win, giving Atholton the championship outright.

Thursday's Anne Arundel County baseball championship game could be an exhibition at best, the result of poor scheduling and the negatives of the blind draw. Neither of the opponents in the county final is expected to pitch their No. 1 or No. 2 pitcher because all but one of the four teams involved are opening in the state playoffs the very next day. Despite top records, they're playing Friday thanks to the outgoing random draw, which, by the way, gave 5-10 Meade a first-round bye in the 4A East along with 2-13 Annapolis in the 3A East.

Politicians are often guilty of dealing in rhetoric and not commitments, but don't count outgoing county executive O. James Lighthizer among them.He's come through in the clutch for county baseball people and truly exudes a favorite saying of mine in sports, one that I believe the major-league baseball skipper Billy "the Kid" Martin coined."

Reservoir gained the inside track to the Howard County title Friday afternoon with a 2-1 win at No. 5 Atholton, the defending Class 3A East regional champion. The Gators (10-0) are now the last undefeated team in the league. Atholton lefty Jon Thews (seven strikeouts, seven hits), making his first start of the season, and Reservoir's T.J. Pipik (four strikeouts, five hits) staged a classic pitcher's duel, each going the distance. The game ended when Thews tried to score the tying run from second on a single to left by Jordan Thompson, but was thrown out at home by left fielder Ben Summers.

If some coaches and athletic directors have their way, starting next spring rivalries between Carroll County baseball and softball teams will become a little less chummy. They are making a push to eliminate one of three annual meetings between the county's four Central Maryland Conference members. It's a move that would leave Liberty, North Carroll, South Carroll and Westminster with just two conference matchups against one another, creating space on the schedule for games against other opponents.
