After losing three of its past five games, with all three losses to Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opponents, Loyola's baseball team needed to turn things around.
It did. Winner Mason Kapelanski pitched a three-hit shutout and the Dons (12-7, 4-3) blanked McDonogh, 10-0, on Saturday.
The Eagles (1-9) suffered their sixth straight loss. Conor Reynolds (2-for-2) had a double, a homer and four RBIs, and James O'Malley (3-for-4) had a double for Loyola.
The three earlier losses were to Archbishop Spalding, 9-6, on Tuesday; to No. 5 Gilman, 14-5, on Wednesday; and to No. 1 Calvert Hall, 7-0, on Thursday.
No. 2 South River 3, Northeast 1: Scott Mitchell (3-for-4) had two doubles, a single and three RBIs to power the visiting Seahawks (7-2) past the Eagles (5-2).
