The good times ended yesterday for sophomore right-hander Amanda Donaldson and her on-rushing Severna Park teammates against North County, a team capable of ruining anybody's softball fun in Anne Arundel County.Especially if the ninth-ranked Knights get some help, as they did yesterday in their 3-2 victory over the eighth-ranked Falcons at Severna Park.North County (8-5) scored two runs on passed balls, and Kellie Evans hit a Donaldson changeup for a bases-empty home run, giving the visitors all the runs they needed.

The frustration of a six-game losing streak is gripping the Orioles almost as hard as reliever Steve Kline's hold on his manager's warm-up jacket last night. So far, only one has let up. Kline was ejected in the eighth inning after being called for a balk, the Orioles" eighth this season, and the New York Yankees turned it into the go-ahead run in a 6-4 victory before 45,801 at Camden Yards that sprinkled a little more controversy over a storied rivalry. Kline spun toward second base umpire Laz Diaz, who made the call that advanced Jorge Posada to second base, then charged plate umpire Marty Foster and pointed a finger in his face.

In almost any championship season, a team can identify a certain stretch that represents a turning point toward the right path. For the No. 4 Archbishop Spalding softball team, which captured the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference crown yesterday at Towson University with a 2-1 nine-inning win over No. 5 Institute of Notre Dame, that time covered one week in the middle of the season when the Cavaliers (16-4) lost three games. "Today, we had a couple [of] lined shots early where they made excellent plays and I think a big key was how our girls didn't get down on themselves," said Spalding first-year coach Nicki Trumpler.

Centennial pitcher Denny Chapman said this year's Eagles have a tremendous amount of heart.Wilde Lake probably will have little trouble seeing Chapman's point after No. 11 Centennial rallied from an early three-run deficit to score a 6-4 victory over the No. 13 Wildecats -- despite getting only three hits.Centennial (10-2, 9-1) simply did a good job of manufacturing runs. The Eagles had just two RBIs for the day -- none on base hits. But they scored two runs on errors, one on a passed ball and another on a wild pitch.

Western pitcher Tracy Gruzs wasn't as effective yesterday in Game 1 of the City-Wide A Conference championship series against Southern of Baltimore as she was in Monday's playoff victory.But the result was the same for the host Doves, who beat the Bulldogs, 8-4, to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series.Western (11-1) will attempt to sweep the series at 3:30 p.m. today at Riverside Park.Gruzs, a sophomore, went the distance yesterday, allowing four runs and six hits, but only two of the hits came after the third inning, even though she showed signs of tiring in the last three innings.

For a baseball program that has waited 12 seasons to return to the playoffs and 28 seasons to play for a spot in a conference final, second-ranked Archbishop Spalding displayed quite a bit of patience yesterday against No. 1 Calvert Hall. By the end of a 2 1/2 -hour marathon at McManus Field in Towson, Spalding had allowed runs in five innings, surrendered 18 hits, struck out nine times and sat through four Cardinals pitching changes. But none of it fazed starting pitcher Andrew Germuth and his teammates, who gave themselves an early lead, then sat back and seemed content to let the game come to them.

NEW YORK - The Orioles committed three errors last night and still had a chance to win. Their catcher had two passed balls, their pitchers hit three batters, their center fielder didn't make two plays. But while stuck in a black comedy, they kept the outcome a mystery until the end. The defense rested for the Orioles, and in the worst possible place. Looking to gain more than just a split of a four-game series at Yankee Stadium, the Orioles were done in by their own sloppiness in a 5-2 loss to New York before 50,595 that made a cross-country flight to Oakland a little more uncomfortable.

It has taken a while, but Eastern Tech's Kenny Miller has learned to use the nickname given him by his teammates - "H.C." - as a source of motivation. "They call me that because I can be a head case, maybe have a little bit of an attitude - sometimes good, sometimes bad," said Miller. "I can throw a few things when I'm upset. Today, I took my frustrations out on the ball." After popping out in his second at-bat, Miller focused his anger in a positive direction yesterday afternoon, finishing 3-for-5, including a game-winning, two-run double in the Mavericks' 6-2 Baltimore County League Class 2A-1A victory at Lansdowne.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Orioles have been thrilled with rookie catcher Geronimo Gil's ability to throw out opposing base stealers. Now they would like to see him improve on the most fundamental aspect of his job -- catching the ball. Among American League catchers, only Anaheim's Benji Molina has thrown out a higher percentage of opposing base stealers than Gil (36.9 percent). This has been a significant development for the Orioles, who struggled to stop the running game last season with Brook Fordyce throwing out just 19.1 percent of those trying to steal.

The idea of Ravens receiver Jermaine Lewis working exclusively on special teams this year was dismissed early in yesterday's 17-6 win over the Chicago Bears. Lewis lined up at running back on the Ravens' first offensive play and caught a swing pass for a 6-yard gain. He returned to running back again midway through the fourth quarter, but fumbled on his only rushing attempt after a 2-yard loss. Bears cornerback Jerry Azumah recovered the fumble. Lewis, who was thought to be nearly out of the offensive game plan, liked the extra work.

A year ago, Lindsay Ettinger went 15-0 to lead Chesapeake-AA to the Anne Arundel County JV softball championship. But she wasn't facing a JV team yesterday. Ettinger's first varsity start came at third-ranked Glen Burnie, the defending county champions. "I was anxious, excited and ready," the sophomore said. Ettinger limited Glen Burnie to six hits and got the big out when she needed it, and sixth-ranked Chesapeake scored on a passed ball in the fourth inning for a 1-0 victory in the opening game for both teams.

Calling yesterday's 10-9 victory over visiting Poly "a comedy of errors," City coach Bill Walker was able to smile after a frustrating afternoon.Though his Knights (8-3) had erred five times, they were bailed out by their first three batters, Damian Beane (3-for-4, home run, double, two RBIs), Raoul Edwards (3-for-4, two home runs, four RBIs) and Pat Mowray (1-for-4, home run, two RBIs)."Our offense came through, where our defense was shaky," said Edwards, a junior. "A lot of us can hit, but today it took our first three guys to get the job done."
