Hudson man, 53, dies in motorcycle accident

A 53-year-old man died Wednesday afternoon after he lost control of his motorcycle and was ejected, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

William Henry Alligood was driving east on Bolton Avenue about 1 p.m. when he swerved for an unknown reason, the FHP report said. The 1986 Honda motorcycle overturned and Alligood fell off the bike and landed on the northern shoulder of the road. Alligood of Hudson was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, where he was pronounced dead.

The FHP is still investigating and has not yet determined whether alcohol played a factor.

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop 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.
