BRUNSWICK, Md. - It wasn't as if Kevin Goode had stopped hitting. He just stopped hitting home runs.

With the region playoffs on the horizon, Goode is still hitting. And now, he's beginning to hit home runs again.

The Brunswick senior hit three home runs Monday to pull within one dinger of Hammond High School's Jason Maxey in the race for Maryland's career home runs record.

The Railroaders swept Smithsburg 24-5 and 21-1 to claim their second straight Monocacy Valley Athletic League title.

Goode began the season as the state record holder with 26 career homers. But Maxey stormed past Goode at the start of the season and appeared to be running away with the record.

Goode did not his first home run until April 30, the Railroaders' 15th game of the season. He has five homers in the last eight days.

Despite the early power drought, Goode has been among the Tri-State area leaders in batting average all season. He is currently hovering around the .485 mark.

The Railroaders play host to Catoctin today in their final game of the regular season. Brunswick will have the No. 1 seed in the Class 1A South playoffs and will host a quarterfinal game next Monday.
