Seminole earns another win with flair

SEMINOLE — A week ago Seminole pulled out a dramatic victory over Pendleton Academy when Jordan Doyle came up with a late-inning grand slam.

On Tuesday, the Warhawks were at it again.

While it wasn't as bombastic as a winning homer, Seminole proved it has the moxie to win in different ways as Cameron Lima scored on a wild pitch during Alex McGathey's at-bat to give the Warhawks a 5-4 victory in nine innings. Seminole (11-1) has won six games by one run, with three wins in extra innings.

"This team has a different feel about it," Lima said. "We all trust each other out there and it doesn't matter what the score is, we have the confidence where we believe in each other that we're going to get things done."

Seminole did just that, first coming back from 3-0 down to tie the game in the sixth on Lima's RBI and then in impressive fashion in the seventh when Joey Krehbiel smacked a homer off starter Kraig Richmond with two outs. Richmond had been fairly overpowering up to that point, striking out 12 before coming out after the eighth inning.

Krehbiel made amends after having allowed the go-ahead run as a reliever in the top half of the inning on a run-scoring single by Brett Gilman.

"I was definitely mad and was excited about getting a chance up there," said Krehbiel, who hit his third homer of the season. "After he threw me a curve for a ball to start the at-bat and then that fastball on the second pitch for another (ball), I kind of knew what was coming. It was nothing but dead-red and I turned on it."

Doyle pitched 12/3 innings in relief to earn his third victory.

Brett Phillips went 1-for-4 with a two-run double for the Warhawks. Brett Gilman went 3-for-4 with three RBIs for the Tornadoes and Sean Gilman went 2-for-3 with two runs.

Tampa Catholic 7, CCC 1: Tampa Catholic won its eighth straight game, a dominating victory at home over Clearwater Central Catholic. The Crusaders have outscored opponents 31-2 over their past four games. The Marauders scored their only run in the first inning as shortstop Preston Packrall homered. The Crusaders' quartet of pitchers combined to hold the Marauders hitless over the final six innings.

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
