Baseball: North Suncoast's Super Seven

Times' Super Seven

(records through Wednesday)

1. Pasco (3-1): Last week's 3-2 loss to Hernando might have been an error-plagued aberration. The Pirates gave up only one hit to the Leopards.

2. Land O'Lakes (2-1): The area's deepest pitching staff has surrendered five runs in three games. A stern test Wednesday against Zephyrhills was postponed because of the cold (in the air) and flu (on Bulldogs' roster).

3. Nature Coast (4-0): The Sharks have been impressive, topping Springstead and Zephyrhills.

4. Zephyrhills (4-1): The Bulldogs have been ravaged by illness. Sophomore Tyler Guy recently lost 20 pounds and missed two games.

5. Bishop McLaughlin (3-0): First, his team upsets St. Petersburg Catholic and Berkeley Prep. Then his wife has a baby boy. If there's a Cloud 10, Hurricanes coach Nick Rodriguez is on it.

6. Springstead (3-1): The Eagles can earn for-real status with a victory Saturday at home against Pasco. Freshman Brett Maggard already has been intentionally walked once.

7. River Ridge (3-1): So far, the sleeper team of Pasco County. Knights junior Tommy Rutledge hasn't allowed a run in 11 innings.
