Hillsborough: Baseball super 7 and stats

1. Brandon (7-0): With two of their top players out for the season, the Eagles keep winning. Senior catcher Michael Smith, who is hitting .471, is picking up the slack.

2. Jesuit (9-0): A big win over Plant and ace Mychal Givens on Wednesday gives the Tigers, who are hitting .384 as a team, a boost.

3. Alonso (6-0): The Ravens are outscoring opponents 45-7 thanks to a 1.08 team ERA. Ace Ray Delphey hasn't allowed an earned run in 17 innings.

4. Armwood (7-1): The Hawks' only blemish is a loss to Brandon last week. Opposing hitters are batting just .086 (5-for-58) against ace Robert Benincasa.

5. Plant (5-2): The Panthers lost 111 RBIs from their 3-4-5 hitters last year. This year's heart of the lineup still has room to grow.

6. Gaither (5-2): The Cowboys' bats have shown a lot of power this season, hitting 12 homers.

7. Bloomingdale (5-3): The Bulls, winners of three straight, have the necessary arms to take them far in a competitive district.
