UCF Knights 2013 spring football game preview

When/where: 2 p.m. Saturday; Bright House Networks Stadium, Orlando

Admission: Youth under 17 and UCF students, free; adults, $5

Of note: UCF prepares for its debut in the American Athletic Conference this fall by wrapping up spring drills — QB Blake Bortles is back after throwing for 3,059 yards and 25 touchdowns as a sophomore. Can RB Storm Johnson step into the starter's role and offset the graduation of 1,000-yard rusher Latavius Murray? The Knights will look to replace three starters on the offensive line, as well as their leading tackler, S Kemal Ishmael, and two other starters in the defensive secondary. The first 5,000 fans get a free UCF spring football poster.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
  3. Rays journal: Cesar Puello, who has one major-league game, claimed off waivers

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
