John Murphy made 89 pitches Wednesday. He wanted only one back. "I got too much of the plate," Murphy said of the fastball in the seventh inning of a Tri-County Conference interdivision baseball game against Delsea. There were two outs. Murphy had a 1-2 count on Crusaders sophomore centerfielder Greg Avis. With one more strike, Murphy would have finished a no-hitter. But Avis took the pitch the other way, slapping a clean single to left field, and Murphy settled for a one-hit masterpiece and a 2-0 victory at Joe Barth Field.

The result of Monday's game mattered little as Brooklawn's impressive run had already sealed the team's berth in Tuesday's championship game. The Brookers played Petaluma (Calif.) on Monday night in Shelby, N.C. The game ended too late for this edition. Brooklawn entered Monday 8-0 and has won all three of its games in Shelby. Tuesday's championship game will be the Brookers' second-straight appearance. They fell last year to New Orleans. Brooklawn clinched the berth Sunday behind the pitching of Tyler Mondile as well as the bats of Anthony Harrold and Pete Farlow.

After the players' leather jackets and eyeglasses are safe inside his office, Mastbaum football coach John Murphy locks the door, slips the knob into his pocket and heads off to practice. "The doorknobs in this building are always getting stolen because they're all brass," Murphy said. "I have five of them stashed all over the place. I even have one in my car. " Then there's the practice field. Franklin Playground in Kensington is a former cemetery filled with chuckholes, ruts and rocks, the most dangerous ones covered with pylons.

Only the Gloucester Catholic baseball team could enter a game with a 27-5 record and a chip on its shoulder. But the Rams have set such a high standard - winning more state titles than any other program in New Jersey, brandishing their work ethic like a badge - that they were feeling a little underappreciated at the start of Wednesday's Non-Public South A championship game. Two hours later, all was right in Gloucester Catholic's diamond-shaped world. "In the big games, the Rams come out," Gloucester Catholic pitcher John Murphy said after firing a four-hitter with nine strikeouts in a 7-0 victory over St. Augustine Prep before a large crowd at Overbrook.

Someday soon, John Murphy and Mike Vasturia likely will be college teammates. Each probably will push the other to do his best as members of the University of Maryland baseball team. That's what they did Sunday as foes on the pitching mound for two of South Jersey's best programs. "It's a lot of fun to go neck-and-neck with him," Vasturia, a junior at St. Augustine Prep, said of Murphy, a senior at Gloucester Catholic. "You always can learn something by watching him. " Murphy earned the edge in the feature matchup of the two-day, seven-game Coaches vs. Cancer showcase at Millville High School by firing a four-hitter in Gloucester Catholic's 1-0 victory over St. Augustine.

It was a bang-bang play that ended the top of the sixth inning and ignited the cheers among the Gloucester Catholic faithful. It also turned up the flame inside of Bishop Eustace pitcher Tyler Phillips. "After (Ryan) DiMeo got called out at third, the fire built up for me," Phillips said. "I said, 'I'm not going to lose to that team.' " Phillips did his best work late in the pressure-packed game as Bishop Eustace beat Gloucester Catholic 2-1 in a clash of the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in South Jersey in the Non-Public South A semifinals on Friday.

PITCHER Joey Gatto ST. AUGUSTINE When Gatto took the mound this season, more than two dozen major-league scouts gathered behind the backstop to chart his every pitch. Gatto embraced that pressure, according to St. Augustine coach Mike Bylone. Gatto went 7-1 with a 0.94 ERA, and St. Augustine won the Cape-Atlantic League American Division title as well as the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. Gatto was at his best late in the season. In his last four outings, he was 4-0 with a 0.25 ERA, 28 strikeouts, and three walks.

There was a stunned feeling, and for good reason. Gloucester Catholic, despite mounting a comeback, lost to St. John Vianney, 3-2, Tuesday in the South Jersey Non-Public A baseball championship game at Rowan University. This was the first time that the Gloucester Catholic seniors had lost an NJSIAA playoff game. The Rams had won four consecutive state championships, two in Non-Public B and the last two in Non-Public A. So even though Gloucester Catholic went 26-6 and was again among the best teams in South Jersey, just reaching a title game wasn't satisfying enough.

For Kevin Terifay and Zak Chiaradia, it wasn't about making great baseball plays. It was more basic than that. "All I asked these guys to do was to battle," Audubon coach Rich Horan said after his team stunned Gloucester Catholic, 1-0, Saturday in the first round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. "When you battle, good things happen. " Terifay, a senior righthander, unfurled a gritty performance before a big crowd at Maple Shade. He displayed great command of his fastball and slider and made big pitches at big times in limiting the heavy-hitting Rams to five singles.

The Gloucester Catholic baseball team didn't need a stellar performance from John Murphy on Saturday. The Rams offense provided plenty of support early, putting up three runs in the first inning and seven in the third against visiting Timber Creek. Still, Murphy gave the Rams a gem. The junior righthander recorded his first career no-hitter during Gloucester Catholic's 11-0 nonleague win. The Maryland recruit struck out 12 of the 15 batters he faced in the five-inning game. Murphy is 5-0 this season and has 20 career wins.

After celebrating its new grass field Tuesday, Woodstown moved a step closer to commemorating the achievements of baseball coach Lee Ware. Woodstown and Ware opened their season with a 4-2 win in a Tri-County Diamond matchup against Deptford. Ware shares South Jersey's all-time record with 603 wins, tied with Russ Spicer, who guided Haddonfield, Moorestown, Paulsboro, and Cinnaminson. "It means I've been around a long time and I've surrounded myself with some good people," said Ware, who has coached Woodstown since 1974.
