Jason Garcia is making some noise for Land O’Lakes. He is 4-0 with a 1.40 ERA.

1. Mitchell (8-1): Area's most balanced club has quality wins vs. Gaither, Sickles, Ridgewood.

2. Land O'Lakes (6-1): Junior righty Jason Garcia has emerged as the Gators' newest ace.

3. Pasco (7-1): Pirates are winning with offense, but the pitching is coming around.

4. Zephyrhills (6-2): Are the Bulldogs for real? Tonight's game against Pasco will tell us a lot.

5. Wiregrass Ranch (6-4): A.J. Leppla is an early Coach of the Year candidate.

6. Sunlake (4-3): Seahawks own quality wins over Zephyrhills, Nature Coast.

7. Hernando Christian (7-1): We don't care whom you're playing, a .459 team batting average is impressive.
