A baseball: Sonrise dispatches Bayshore Christian with ease

LAKELAND — For the second straight game, Sonrise Christian got timely hitting and took advantage of numerous mistakes in a 15-1 rout of Bayshore Christian on Tuesday in Class A region quarterfinal action.

The Seminoles (7-7) will take on Cambridge on Friday.

Sonrise scored two runs in the first, five in the second and broke it open with eight in the fourth.

"We've struggled all year," said Sonrise coach Steve Beach. "I told them they had to believe they could do it and now they've gone out and done it."

Ryan Taylor got Sonrise going, reaching on a fielder's choice and going to second on a throwing error. He went to third on a botched pickoff throw from the pitcher and scored when the Bayshore centerfielder launched the ball into the team's dugout.

Then Zach Rimes singled and stole second. David Evans hit a shot, which the shortstop bobbled. The shortstop then threw high to first, not only allowing Evans to be safe but Rimes to score.

Sonrise broke it open in the fifth with five runs on two hits, three walks and a couple of errors.

  1. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer


    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
