Monday’s threat of rain wasn’t enough to stop a few baseball teams from getting real game action for the first time.

At Patterson Mill, Braden Soos pitched three innings of no-hit ball to lead the Huskies past the Edgewood Rams, 11-1, in five innings.


“Braden Soos got ahead of hitters early in the game and we played quality defense throughout the game,” Huskies coach Matt Roseland said. “Timely hits each inning allowed us to score with runners in scoring position, a nice team effort.”

Soos struck out two. Evan Celuch tossed one inning and was charged with the run on three hits. Mason Smith added one scoreless inning.


Edgewood freshman Andrew Saulsbury took the loss.

Offensively, Ethan Shultz went 3-for-3 with four runs scored and an RBI double for Patterson Mill. Nick Santoro added two hits and two RBIs and Mike Segreti also had two hits and an RBI.

Evan Celuch and Peyton Celuch each added a hit and RBI.

Will Hunter had a hit and RBI for the Rams and Jouseph Rodriguez had a hit and run scored.

Hawks beat Warriors

North Harford beat visiting Havre de Grace, 12-1, Monday. The Hawks broke the game open with a seven-run third inning.

Bobby Duffy was an RBI machine, driving in five runs on two hits to lead the Hawks. Duffy drove in runs on a sacrifice fly in the first, a single in the second and a triple in the third. Justin Gue also had two hits and Sam Macatee stole four bases.

Mitchell Wittkamp was the winning pitcher, allowing no runs on no hits, over one-and-a-third innings. He struck out two.

Alex Gresock took the loss, lasting two innings. He allowed three hits and five runs, while striking out one.

Brayden Gruzs led Havre de Grace with two hits in two at-bats.

Mustangs open with win

C. Milton Wright beat visiting Kenwood, 13-3, in five innings Monday.

The Mustangs used strong pitching from Jace Pibil and MJ Cummings.

Dominick Jankovich and Eric Brettschneider paced the offense.


Patriots edged in extras

John Carroll fell 6-5 at Gilman on Monday in nine innings. The Patriots led 2-1 after two innings, but trailed 3-2 after three.

A single run for John Carroll in the fourth tied the game, eventually causing the extra innings.

Sean Fasano and Nico Santoro both doubled and both drove in two runs.

Brandon Crews, one of four Patriots pitchers, took the loss.

Cobras beat Severn

Despite rain and strong winds that plagued the area late last week, the Harford Tech baseball team not only played, but also won, to get the 2019 season off to a winning start.

Also for the Cobras, Brennen Schneider added one hit, three walks and a stolen base and Parker McIlhenney also added a hit, two walks and an RBI. Conor Henderson added a hit as well in the win.

On the hill, Nate Reed pitched three innings to earn the victory. He allowed five hits, while striking out seven. Schneider earned the save pitching in relief of Jay Rose. Brennen pitched the final two and a third innings, allowing one hit and striking out three.
