Combined no-hitter fuels 9-10 baseball title in District 5

Nick Lamoureux and Alex Raymonds combined for a no-hitter Thursday to lead Seminole (No. 1) to an 8-1 victory over Gulf Beaches in the 9-10 baseball District 5 championship. Lamoureux threw 42/3 innings and struck out five to get the win. Raymonds came on in relief with two outs in the fifth and pitched the final 11/3 innings to preserve the win. He struck out two of the four batters.

Nick Perret put Seminole on the board in the second inning with a double that scored Kyle Fansler. Leading 3-0 heading into the fourth, Seminole scored four runs to put the game away. Fansler had the inning's big hit, knocking in two runs with a two-out single.

Lamoureux had two doubles, and Cameron Cuellar went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.

Thursday's title-clinching victory was the first time Seminole was forced to play beyond the fourth inning. Through five victories in the district tournament, Seminole outscored opponents a combined 72-4. Lamoureux bashed three home runs (two over the fence, one inside the park) in the tournament and started two games on the mound to go 2-0. Raymonds, Cuellar and Perret also had pitching victories.

The Seminole 10-11 baseball team defeated Pinellas Park National 8-6 on Wednesday to win a District 5 title.

The game started Tuesday but was suspended in the sixth tied at 5 with Seminole batting and runners at first and second.

When the game resumed Wednesday, Seminole's first batter, Anthony DeRosa, doubled down the leftfield line to bring in the go-ahead run. Seminole scored twice more in the sixth.

DeRosa finished 2-for-3 with two doubles. Shortstop Nathan Tomilonus was also instrumental in Seminole's district title, making a number of spectacular plays in the field.

Also, Seminole's 9-10 softball team defeated Northeast/Baypoint 13-1 and Pinellas Park National 10-0 to capture the District 5 title.

Billy Fowler update: Billy Fowler, who was told he made the Azalea majors all-star baseball team (District 5) but isn't allowed to play because of a zoning mixup, still has not heard whether an appeal to Little League International has been upheld. Fowler sat in the stands Friday as Azalea lost its first district game to Seminole 16-3.

Power surge: Connor Churchill, Christian James and Jake Hansen hit over-the-fence home runs in East Lake's 10-0 win over Clearwater on Wednesday in District 12 9-10 baseball. Churchill also struck out nine in a complete-game, four-inning victory.

Dawson lifts Clearwater to victory: Clearwater and Holiday went back and forth in District 12 10-11 baseball Wednesday. Holiday took a 5-0 lead before Clearwater rallied to go ahead 7-5 in the fourth. Holiday retook the lead in the sixth then Clearwater drove home a run to send the game to extra innings. Tied 8-8 in the bottom of the seventh, Clearwater's Dayne Dawson roped a one-out line drive to deep centerfield to score Zach Marshall in a 9-8 walkoff victory.

Earlier in the week, Josh Lamoureux pitched a no-hitter in a 14-0, four-inning victory over Largo.

Seeing double: Identical twins Tyler and Travis Edling each hit a home run in the fourth inning of Holiday's 15-5, four-inning win over West Pinellas in District 12 9-10 baseball Wednesday. Tyler hit a solo shot, and Travis followed two batters later with a two-run home run. For both boys it was the first home run of their career.
