This is kind-of a wild guess, but is there any chance your throat plate is lower than the table surface? With a short piece like you are cutting, if one edge was on the table surface and the other edge dropped onto a slightly lower throat-plate it would tip the drop toward the blade.

Taking the same theory one step farther, a zero clearance throat plate might help, and would probably be a good idea with pieces as short as you are cutting.
