Elkton manager Dale Ross looked like he was rolling the dice, but in reality, he was betting on a sure thing. In a gutsy move, Ross removed pitcher Jack Stewart with two strikes on Jimmie Gentry with one out and the bases loaded in the sixth inning with a two-run lead. He gave the hook to bring in the hook. Enter Will Lorman. Exit Northern Calvert. Lorman dealt four straight curveballs, the first to strike out Gentry, followed by three straight to take down Kyle Kingsbury on Tuesday to preserve Elkton's 5-3 victory in the winners' bracket final of the Maryland State 11-12 Tournament at Maugansville Little League's Jay W. Stouffer Field.

bobp@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. -The long ball hurt the Valley All-Stars on Tuesday. But not as much as the ones that didn't go anywhere. Valley withstood three Elkton home runs to remain in the game, but couldn't come up with the clutch hits when it needed them the most in an 8-5 loss that eliminated the District 1 representatives from the Maryland State Tournament at Robert B. Staley Stadium. Valley was unable to score with two runners on in the first and sixth innings which only enhanced Elkton's instant offense as its three homers produced seven runs.

The town of Williamsport is still considering a nuisance ordinance. The mayor and town council members on Monday reviewed a “property nuisance abatement” ordinance from Elkton in Cecil County, Md., as a possible guide, continuing a discussion from last month. Edward Kuczynski, Williamsport's town attorney, said the Elkton ordinance targets property owners and holds them responsible for the activities of people who rent from them. That would not affect what people do in public, Kuczynski noted - a problem that some council members hinted at, without specifics, during the discussion.

When it comes to patience, Jake Arnone is a typical 12-year-old. ... He doesn't have much of it. But, then again, he didn't need much on Thursday. Arnone's wait ended within the first couple of pitches he saw in the first inning. He turned on a curveball and deposited it over the fence in left field for a two-run home run to support starting pitcher Isaac Schlotterbeck's compete-game effort in a 11-1 rout of Elkton in the championship round of the Maryland 11-12 State Tournament at Maugansville Little League's Jay W.
