Rich Racobaldo is starting to feel better. Not coincidentally, so is the Washington Township baseball team. "Perfect timing," Racobaldo said after leading the Minutemen to their second consecutive upset victory in the South Jersey Group 4 tournament. Racobaldo, a junior righthander, allowed two hits in four scoreless innings, and 11th-seeded Washington Township sent 12 batters to the plate in an eight-run fourth inning Thursday en route to a 13-1 victory over third-seeded Cherry Hill West.

Eastern centerfielder Maddie Morano was glad the ball was hit to her with the game on the line. "I just had a bunch of adrenaline in me at that point," she said. Morano also had one pretty good throw left in her arm, one that would vault the Vikings into the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals. Morano's throw after a fairly deep fly out by Rachel Edwards nailed the runner at home for a game-ending double play Wednesday as second-seeded Eastern beat No. 7 seed Washington Township, 2-1, in a South Jersey Group 4 quarterfinal between Olympic Conference American Division heavyweights.

The Burlington City pitching combination of Nick Gares and Michael Scott put together a masterful performance Tuesday in the 11th-seeded Blue Devils' 3-0 upset of No. 6 host Riverside in the South Jersey Group 1 playoffs. Gares earned the win by allowing two hits to go with six strikeouts in five innings. Scott entered the game in the bottom of the sixth inning and struck out one batter in earning a two-inning save. The game took two days to complete after it was suspended by rain on Monday.

Brandon Riggs didn't care that his team was the No. 12 seed in South Jersey Group 4. The Egg Harbor Township senior righthander didn't care that Williamstown was the No. 5 seed, as well as the defending champion. "The seeds, they don't mean anything," Riggs said after powering Egg Harbor Township to a 3-1 victory over Williamstown on Tuesday. "It's a new season in the playoffs. " With a sneaky fastball and sharp curve, Riggs allowed just one unearned run on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks.

New day. New field. Old approach. Old result. "We had to get back to the way we played previous games," Clearview coach Rocco Cornacchia said after his team's weather-delayed, 7-6 victory over Rancocas Valley on Tuesday in the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 baseball tournament. Junior shortstop Tim Dezzi delivered the game-winning hit with an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth and senior lefthander Kenny Mendoza earned the pitching victory with two innings of scoreless relief for top-seeded Clearview (17-4-1)

Billy Jackson knew this wasn't a typical playoff opener between a No. 15 seed and a No. 2 seed. The Highland senior second baseman knew that seeds and records and recent history don't mean a whole lot when his school plays Triton in any sport. "It's a sister school," Jackson said. "Our fans know their fans, the players know each other. "There's so much between the two schools. You knew it would be like this. " With Jackson and senior shortstop Collin Bishop combining for five RBIs out of the top two spots in the lineup, Highland survived a serious scare from Triton and advanced with a 7-6 victory Monday in the first round of the South Jersey Group 3 tournament.

Tyler Travis doesn't lead the Eastern baseball team in hits, runs, or RBIs. He's tops in cheers, chants, and overall enthusiasm. Travis is a good player. He has 19 hits with 16 runs and 11 RBIs for the newly-crowned Olympic Conference American Division champions. He also plays a mean second base after spending most of the season as a strong defensive catcher. But Travis' greatest contribution to the Vikings' cause has been his spirited leadership, according to his coach and teammates.

THIS WASN'T the first email that Rilma Scott sent colleagues at Pathways to Housing PA alerting them that one of their clients had died. It was always sad to lose someone with whom she and her team members at the homeless housing group had worked. The emails were her way of offering a final remembrance of someone often forgotten in life. Last month, Scott sent an email about Mark Wilkins, 59, an Army veteran with PTSD and a long history of drug and alcohol addiction. But in addition to expressing sadness over the loss of a man they had come to know as a gentle giant, Scott's message was filled with a nagging sense of "what if?"

Safety advocates are pressing federal regulators to make Ikea stop selling a popular line of bedroom dressers, after a Minnesota toddler became the third child in two years to die when his dresser toppled onto him. In a letter sent Tuesday to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a coalition representing four groups said buyers of the Malm line should be allowed to return them for a full refund. It also scolded the safety commission and the retailer over Ikea's decision to keep selling the dressers, despite knowing they fail to meet industry-accepted stability standards.
