The Patterson Mill baseball team's quest for its first ever state championship came to a close Saturday afternoon, when the Huskies suffered a 4-0 shutout loss to the St. Michael's Saints in the Class 1A final.

Playing at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, the Huskies were neck-and-neck with the Saints for the first three innings, with starting pitcher Matt Golczewski holding St. Michael's to three singles and a walk. In the top of the fourth, however, the Saints' leadoff man sent one of Golczewski's offerings over the left field wall for a solo homer.

In the next frame, after Golczewski retired the first two hitters, then Saints rallied for three runs on three hits and a walk to take a 4-0 lead.

The Huskies threatened in the bottom of the sixth, with Aaron Childs and Zach Scheuerman getting on base via a single and a walk, respectively. But with one man down and two on base, Jimmy Salamone hit into an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play.

The Saints may have scored another run were it not for a fine defensive play in the top of the seventh. With one man on base and one down, the Saints hitter lined a shot toward the left field corner. Patterson Mill leftfielder Childs ran down the ball and made a lunging catch just inside fair territory. The Saints' base runner was nearly to third when the catch was made and he was doubled up first base to end the inning.

Patterson Mill, making its first appearance in a state final, ended its season with a 20-5 record.

    Reverse Baltimore's population slide: Green more city neighborhoods

    Demolition seems to be Larry Hogan’s top priority when it comes to Baltimore; he gets a real kick out of it, too. The Maryland governor put on a hard hat the other day and got behind the controls of a CASE excavator to knock down an abandoned rowhouse. Not that there’s anything wrong with that....

    In the interest of setting straight the record of Nancy Pelosi’s time in Baltimore, allow me to provide a brief follow-up to Sunday’s column about her family portrait and that white dress she wore for it. The speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives grew up in a Baltimore political family....

I’m westbound on O’Donnell. I pass Ponca Street, then Newkirk. I look to the left and suddenly I have a Shocking...
