House and cars damaged by hit-run driver

The Florida Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a vehicle that authorities say crashed into a Spring Hill house over the weekend and caused $15,000 in damage. The vehicle — which struck the home, two cars and two mailboxes in the 1500 block of Overland Drive about 1:30 a.m. Saturday — was described as possibly a maroon Jeep Cherokee, a report said. Authorities said the vehicle suffered heavy front-end damage and a broken rear taillight. Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Tod Cloud toll-free at 1-800-500-1240.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays scored that many in a single game during their two-plus week numbing stretch of offensive impotency, and in a home game in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
