5A baseball: Seminole gets by Pinellas Park

CLEARWATER — Pinellas Park had a pretty good game plan against Seminole on Tuesday in the Class 5A region quarterfinals.

But the Warhawks' stellar pitching and defense never allowed the Patriots' bats to get in gear, as Seminole prevailed 4-2.

Seminole leadoff batter Brett Phillips quickly singled in the first inning, as did Joey Krehbiel. Alex McGathey drew a walk, then Jordan Doyle was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to put the Warhawks up 1-0. In the following inning, Phillips again singled to drive in a run for a 2-0 lead.

After a Brad Smith doubled cut the deficit to 2-1 in the bottom of the inning, the Patriots (18-10) seemed to be gaining momentum. They had a chance to do some damage in the third, but Krehbiel made a stellar play, fielding a slow roller with his bare hand, quickly throwing a runner out at first.

Both teams continued to play good defense until Gabe Martello singled to drive in two runs to break open a tight game in the fourth inning. Warhawks pitcher Tim Lamoureux went six strong innings, striking out seven and walking three before being relieved by Jordan Doyle.

"My curveball and fastball were on point tonight, with timely hitting and great fielding propelling us to victory," Lamoureux said.
