4A baseball: Jesuit cruises 8-1 over Cape Coral Mariner

CAPE CORAL—Jesuit jumped on Cape Coral Mariner early and finished them off late in Friday's Class 4A region final.

The Tigers scored two runs each in the first and second innings, and four in the seventh to win 8-1. Jesuit will play in its first state semifinal since 2006 next week at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie.

Jesuit's Daniel Gibson held the Tritons to just two hits.

"He's gotten the ball in all of the big games this season," coach Richie Warren said. "Hopefully he's got one more in him."

Gibson faced the minimum of three batters in six of seven innings and struck out seven.

Senior Nick Iacovella's two-run home run to leftfield with two outs in the top of the first gave Jesuit a 2-0 lead. Senior Chris Reinhart hit a home run to center in the second inning, and senior Alex Bacon scored on a Triton error to make it 4-0.

The Tigers scored four runs with two outs in the seventh, two of which came on wild pitches.

"I don't know if any team in our area would have beat that team tonight," Mariner coach Steve Larsen said. "Their pitcher was very solid. Everything we hit hard they fielded it. No hiccups.
