Grand Slam

WILLIAMSPORT - The fat lady kept trying to sing to put an end to Friday's Maryland District 1 9-10 All-Stars Tournament game between Hancock and host Conococheague. Neither team would let her - and it made for a thrilling contest. Hancock took an 8-0 lead with an eight-run third inning - capped by Jesse Wolford's grand slam - only to watch Conococheague score the game's next nine runs, including five in the sixth - capped by Ethan Moats' grand slam - for a 9-8 lead. But down to its last out, Hancock kept battling.

by BOB PARASILITI | August 3, 2003 On a day reserved for nostalgia, Julian Benavidez adopted a throwback approach to his game. It was like the golden days of the game for the Hagerstown Suns first baseman. He headed to the plate with two words and one color in mind. "(Augusta reliever Mike Garber) came at me with two fastballs and missed his spots," Benavidez said. "I was looking dead red. " That meant fastball down the middle of the plate. Benavidez turned on the pitch and blasted a grand slam to the deepest part of left-center field on Saturday to cap the Suns' five-run third inning en route to a 6-3 win over Augusta.

For Pat Taylor, Wednesday was a good night to get wet. The Conococheague Little League manager was doused with a bucket of ice water after his club secured the league's third Maryland District 1 11-12 baseball championship in five years - and fifth overall - with a 10-5 win over Sharpsburg. Maddux Grove delivered the key blow with a grand slam in the second for a 6-2 lead, and Conococheague never looked back. “That grand slam was enormous and it came from a kid we don't expect to hit grand slams,” Taylor said.
