Holy Spirit, ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, toppled No. 1 Millville yesterday, 15-13, in what probably will be known for years as "The War at the Shore.

Andrew Biggs has 51 strikeouts in just 21 innings. But he's more than a pitcher. Biggs has four doubles, a triple, and a home run. But he's more than a hitter. "I like to think of myself as a two-way player," said Biggs, who has led Millville to an 8-2 record and No. 4 spot in The Inquirer's Top 10. "I've been blessed with talent as both a pitcher and a hitter. I like to do both. " Biggs said one reason he has made a commitment to attend Delaware State on a baseball scholarship is that the Hornets view him as an athlete who can play the field and stay in the lineup when he isn't pitching.

Familiarity bred comfort for Ed Shockley. The Millville High School linebacker committed to Villanova on a football scholarship Thursday night for a variety of reasons: his relationship with the defensive coordinator, and his regard for the quality of the program and for the school's academic reputation. But Shockley cited another reason: Villanova's tradition of recruiting players from the Cape-Atlantic League. "I like the idea of going someplace where I'll know some people and where people from here have been successful," Shockley said.

ALTHOUGH they doled out the largest contract in franchise history in the last 18 months, re-signing World Series MVP Cole Hamels, the Phillies have spent their second straight offseason shying away from trying to outspend their competition to improve their roster. "The prices that are out there . . . I don't think it matches up with the level of talent," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said earlier this month. "Someone's going to pay . . . We're just not targeting those, because we don't think it's the right bang for the buck.
