Reservoir baseball beats Oakland Mills, tightens county race

With just over a week to go in the season, the Howard County baseball frontrunner is up in the air, again.

Reservoir's 5-3 win at Oakland Mills on April 29 dropped the Scorpions to 11-2, while Atholton was 10-2 entering this week.

Every other team in the county has at least five losses, which means that either the Raiders or Scorpions will likely come away with the county title.

"It should be interesting. We have a lot of good teams going to the playoffs," Reservoir coach Adam Leader said. "That's what we're working toward."

Reservoir ace Cody Morris earned the victory at Oakland Mills on April 29, striking out 12 and walking one in the complete game effort.

The Scorpions got all three of their runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, including a solo home run by Westan Hart.

Gators catcher Danny O'Hagan led the Reservoir offense, singling, doubling and hitting a solo home run of his own.

Atholton's remaining games are at Centennial (3-10) on May 1, at Glenelg (7-6) on May 2, home against Howard (7-6) on May 3, at Reservoir (7-5) on May 6 and at Wilde Lake (1-11) on May 7.

Oakland Mills plays at River Hill (7-6) on May 1, at Hammond (8-5) on May 3, home against Glenelg on May 6 and at Reservoir on May 7.
