Pasco-Hernando Classic: Day 1 at Hernando

At Hernando

Scores

Land O'Lakes 5, NCT 0 Hernando 7, Fivay 0

Pitchers of the day

In his season mound debut, Land O'Lakes junior Tom Guglielmello threw a four-hit complete game, striking out eight. …Hernando's David Flowers went the distance with seven strikeouts and two pickoffs. …Fivay's Sean Fluke (5-1) suffered his first loss but ran his season strikeout total to 58.

Hitters of the day

Hernando's first three runs against Fluke were on a series of infield hits and errors, but there was nothing small ball about Justin Young's grand slam in the fifth. Catcher Austin Treverton, who also picked off a base runner, doubled in the fourth after Fluke had been cruising in a scoreless game. …Designated hitter Liam Heaney drove in three for LOL, his two-run single in the fifth making it 5-0. Leadoff batter Connor Stephens went 2-for-4 with a triple and run scored.

Defensive gems of the day

Hernando first baseman Brendan Litwinsky's nifty sixth-inning scoop on a well-hit Fluke liner kept Flowers' shutout in tact.

Did you know?

Tuesday's pairings were intentional; the teams are not on each other's regular-season schedules.

Dugout chatter

"Honestly, I was just hoping he could throw three innings, maybe four. We haven't had anyone settle into the No. 1 spot. But he's in the mix now." — coach Calvin Baisley on Guglielmello, who hadn't thrown until Tuesday because he was still transitioning from basketball season
