Baseball: Seminole falls 3-1 to Orlando Dr. Phillips in Georgiadis Memorial Tournament final

SEMINOLE — Seminole manager Greg Olsen had watched Orlando Dr. Phillips put together strong pitching performances all week during the Steve Georgiadis Memorial Tournament.

In Saturday's final, Panthers pitchers Josh Strong and Ben Overman held the Warhawks to one hit in a 3-1 victory.

"Those guys executed their pitches and were better than us tonight," Olsen said.

Seminole pitchers Spencer Heirman and Joey Krehbiel kept the Warhawks close.

"Our pitchers were great," Olsen said. "They gave us an opportunity to win the game."

The Panthers scored all three runs in the second inning with the help of Seminole miscues.

Ryan Gordon reached on an error with two outs. Miles Anderson walked and Pat Fenlon was hit by a pitch to load the bases. J.P. Galagarza hit what appeared to be a routine ground ball, but the Warhawks committed another error, allowing two runs to score. Adam DeRusha followed with a single to score Fenlon.

"They made some mistakes, and we got lucky," Panthers manager Mike Bradley said. "We took the motto that we have to win every inning."

The Warhawks scored their run in the bottom of the seventh. After a walk, Tyler Griffith stole second and third, then scored on a passed ball.

Blake Hutton led the Panthers with three hits and was named tournament MVP.

Lakewood 7, First Academy 5: In the third-place game, the Spartans fell behind 5-1, then scored six runs in the top of the seventh to beat Orlando First Academy.

Jeremy Brown singled and scored on a double by Nate Plaines. Latarian Latimer reached on an error, and after a strikeout, Morgan Harris doubled in two runs. Jimmy Lynch was walked. After another strikeout, Keegan Oberer walked. Harris scored on an error and Lynch and Oberer scored on passed balls.

"The wind was blowing in and the long ball wasn't in play," Spartans coach Richard Fabrizi said. "They finally shortened their swings and we were able to put some hits together."

Lynch pitched five innings, surrendering three hits.
