At Jefferson
Scores

King 6, Brooks-DeBartolo 3
Wharton 15, Chamberlain 1
Jefferson 10, Hillsborough 0 (5 innings)

Pitchers of the day
Steinbrenner 6-foot-4 sophomore Cole Gordon tossed six shutout innings against Robinson, scattering four hits and striking out 10 to lower his season ERA to 1.03. … King junior right-hander Brandon Caples threw a complete-game five-hitter, striking out four and walking two. … In three innings for Jefferson, USF signee Jimmy Herget fanned seven, walked two and surrendered three hits.

Hitters of the day
Steinbrenner SS Stone Ramsey had a home run, one of only five Warriors hits against Robinson. … King 2B Tanner Williams went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer. … Wharton senior Zack Zaversnik had a three-run double to spark the Wildcats’ five-run seventh. … Jefferson 3B Corbin Olmstead went 2-for-3 with a pair of run-scoring singles.

Defensive gem of the day
When his pitcher and first baseman scurried to field a fifth-inning bunt down the first-base line, Chamberlain 2B Garrett Sharpless sprinted to first just in time to make a lunging catch and step on the bag. For a second or two, it appeared as if P Edwin Castillo’s throw would be to an unoccupied base; that’s how quickly Sharpless converged.

Did you know?
Monday’s victory was No. 599 for 67-year-old Dragons coach Pop Cuesta, currently in his 40th season as Dragons coach. He’ll seek his latest milestone triumph at 7 tonight against Wharton. … Gordon has not allowed an earned run in his past 18 innings, a stretch that includes a seven-inning no-hitter against Chamberlain on Feb. 28.

Dugout chatter
“We’ve been having some problems with kids swinging at balls out of the strike zone. So every day we’re trying to stress, ‘Just keep your head in there and hit the ball where it’s pitched, and swing at strikes.’ Pitch selection is very important. Today they did a very good job.” — Cuesta, whose team drew six walks and struck out once against a pair of Terriers pitchers
