Trailing 4-2, Northeast's Chris Castro was hit by a pitch to begin the bottom of the seventh inning of Wednesday's Public League Division A matchup. The ensuing batter, Jordan Montero, was originally called out by the first-base umpire until a conference at home plate resulted in a reversal of the decision, because the first baseman's foot left the bag on a wide throw. Central's coach argued the call until he was ejected. Following the brief recess, Castro advanced to third on a wild pitch.

PICTURE THIS, Philadelphia: You're stuck in traffic on the Schuylkill Expressway near Boathouse Row on a powder-blue fall afternoon when your radio scan picks up an unfamiliar station: 1540 on your AM dial. It's the top of the hour on WNWR, and a strange, bombastic Chinese-language pop song - the Mandarin answer to Adele, perhaps - fades out and it's almost time for the news. First, "This is Weather Report" - one of the station's odd English phrasings - delivered along with the traffic by "your host, Calypso!

In Coatesville's season opener on Monday night, Brian Brown allowed his first and only baserunner via a walk in the sixth inning. He promptly picked the runner off first base. It was a signature moment in a signature game.

The lefthander struck out 13 batters and allowed just one walk. Bobby Stewart accounted for all three Coatesville runs with a two-run home run in the first inning, and an RBI single in the fifth.

WITH LAST night's game well out of reach in the fourth quarter, Engineering and Sciences head basketball coach C.M. Brown frantically asked referee Russell McCullough for a timeout. "You guys don't even have the ball," McCullough said, laughing. Surely, the only coach E&S has ever known knew the rule, but his attention was elsewhere. After a dead ball, a break was finally granted. "I was trying to get a kid in the game," Brown said later with the hint of a smile on his face.
