"I felt really good through the early innings, but I tired a little toward the end. Luckily, we started hitting."

Things are really looking up for four Anne Arundel County Class 4A teams to make the East Region baseball playoffs that begin Friday, May 20.No. 2-ranked Arundel (13-2) and No. 3 Old Mill (12-3) are leading the pack with Severna Park (9-3) and Chesapeake (10-5) right behind.No. 11 North County (8-7) and Glen Burnie (8-6) are in slumps and fading fast, and two Calvert County schools in the region are not doing much better. Through Wednesday, Calvert was 8-5 and Northern 8-6.What hurts Calvert and Northern is that most of the teams they play are Class 3A or 2A, which only gets them seven or six points per win while the Anne Arundel 4A clubs play mostly 4A schools, which are worth eight points a win.With most of those involved having only five games left, time is running out and an all-Anne Arundel County regional appears likely.

When Scott Vane walked to the mound to pitch the last of the third inning, the game changed for Severna Park.The defense perked up, the intensity improved and most important of all, the Falcons took command.The result was a 12-7 come-from-behind victory for 15th-ranked Severna Park over 11th-ranked Broadneck.The setback dropped the defending state Class 3A champion Bruins to 1-2 and prompted a post-game lecture from coach Mark Stover.Broadneck blew a 5-0 lead after two innings yesterday, committed four errors and had four pitchers touched for 14 hits, seven walks and one balk.

If North County coach Don Usewick had any doubts about his team's abilities, the first inning of yesterday's season opener against Severna Park did little to quell them.The host Knights committed two costly errors and fell behind, 3-0, before even getting a chance to bat.It's what they did during the remainder of the game, however, that showed why they are considered one of the area's premier teams.The fourth-ranked Knights answered with three runs in their half of the first, then rode the arm of senior pitcher Mike Wooden to a 4-3 win over the No. 10 Falcons in an Anne Arundel County 4A League game.

With the center-field fence of his team's home park a mere 330 feet from the plate, Severna Park baseball coach Jim Pitt has come to one conclusion from his years at the helm.Said Pitt: "When you make a mistake in this ballpark, you will pay for it."In the No. 6 Falcons' 13-6 loss to second-ranked Chesapeake yesterday, starter Pat Boucher payed with a hurler's most precious possession of all -- his ERA.The Cougars socked the normally-stingy Boucher for 13 earned runs on 14 hits, including four home runs.

What Severna Park failed to do in the top of the seventh, Glen Burnie did in the bottom yesterday, as the visiting Gophers (7-8) dealt the host Falcons (8-7) an 8-6 loss.Down 5-2 in their last at-bat, the Gophers erupted for six runs, including a three-run homer by designated hitter Mike Bronakoski, in a slugfest that featured seven home runs, then got a clutch relief effort from sophomore Jay Sponaugle to close it.A couple of mental mistakes cost the Falcons two chances to make double plays in the last inning, but Sponaugle got John Milisitz (who had homered twice)

Chesapeake has something Severna Park wants, and the Falcons showed yesterday in Lake Shore they're going after it.Top-ranked Severna Park (13-1) blanked No. 10 Chesapeake, 3-0, on Pat Boucher's three-hitter. The win was Severna Park's 13th straight in their trek to what they hope will lead to the school's first state baseball title in baseball. Chesapeake accomplished the feat a year ago.Boucher (5-0) out-dueled junior right-hander Adam Moore (2-3), who pitched a four-hitter for Chesapeake with six strikeouts and two walks.
