A pair of upsets on final day of the regular season will go a long way in shaping the upcoming Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference baseball tournament.

After starting Wednesday in a four-way tie for first place, No. 3 Archbishop Spalding wrapped up the league's No. 1 seed with a 3-2 win over John Carroll, earning the Cavaliers a first-round bye in the double-elimination tournament, which begins Friday.

No. 9 Archbishop Curley locked up the No. 2 seed, and the other bye, by upending No. 2 Calvert Hall, the defending A Conference champion, 6-2.

And No. 7 St. Paul's, which could've clinched the top seed with a win, instead fell back to the No. 4 seed after losing to unranked Loyola, 9-5.
