Defensive gems of the day: Minutes after being beaned in the helmet by a Sean Cramer pitch, Plant SS Nick Ramos charged a tricky high bouncer and threw out Jordan Fameree by a step in the fifth. A sophomore, Ramos also took a wicked hop to the eye Saturday against Riverview. …With two out and Hillsborough speedster Roche Woodard on first, Durant LF John Hicks scooped up Tony Jones' single and threw it on a hop to SS Dylan Barrow, who turned and threw in time for C Ruben Garcia to tag out Woodard.

Dugout chatter: "In a long season of a lot of losses, this is our first comeback win …so hopefully we can build on this and try to get something going for districts." — Leto's J.J. Pizzio, whose club (6-13) exploded for 10 hits in the last three innings to rally from a 3-0 deficit
