Saladino Tournament: Day 3 roundup from Riverview

At Riverview


Wharton 5, Durant 0

Hillsborough 11, Lennard 1 (five innings)

Plant 9, Leto 8

Riverview 4, Armwood 3

Hitters of the day: Wharton leadoff batter Zach Gawrych went 2-for-4 with a double … Hillsborough's Daniel Dominguez finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs, a stolen base and a run scored … Terriers RF Logan Lapace drove in three runs, went 2-for-3 and stole a base … Plant SS Dylan Henderson went 2-for-4 and scored twice … Conner Shimberg from Plant was 2-for-2 and drove in a pair of runs … Catcher Juan Fontela led Leto with three hits (3-for-4) with two RBIs, a triple and a run scored … Leto SS Errick Guiterrez went 2-for-3 with two RBIs and a stolen base.

Pitchers of the day: The Wildcats' Kyle Brett tossed a five hitter, striking out five and walking a pair … Hillsborough's Cesar Reyes and Jonas Jimarey combined to hold Lennard to two hits in a five-inning game … Tristan Speak went the distance, fanning seven including the final out with a runner in scoring position.

Defensive gem of the day: Riverview's Ryan Ogara nearly made the blunder of the night but turned it into a gem. The senior centerfielder misplayed a deep line drive with the Sharks leading 4-3 in the seventh. But he hustled back to the fence and threw out the runner at second to help preserve the win.

Did you know?: Hillsborough's Omauri Grosvenor set a single-game Saladino record with six stolen bases and the Terriers finished with 16 in all … Plant scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth to lock up the top spot in the Southern Division.
