Berkeley Prep 39, Lakeland Christian 17

LAKELAND — Lakeland Christian's early 10-point lead wasn't enough to put away Berkeley Prep, and the Vikings lost on homecoming night in front of a crowd of 1,585.

LCS, which was averaging 114 passing yards going into the game, was held to just 10. Quarterback, and homecoming king, Ryan Parrish didn't complete his first pass until 4:20 left in the third quarter.

Parrish did give the Vikings an early 7-0 lead with a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Daniel Hughes' 36-yard field goal with 4:52 left in the quarter put the Vikings ahead, 10-0.

Berkeley Prep (4-1) then scored the next 39 points. The Buccaneers' rushing attack totaled 264 yards, with sophomore Nelson Agholor getting 182 of that on 12 attempts.

Agholor ran for three touchdowns and caught a 19-yard pass for another. Two of his TDs came in the second quarter, when Berkeley Prep outscored LCS 25-0 to take control of the game. Berkeley quarterback Destin Nichols passed for two touchdowns and ran for one.

The Vikings' final touchdown came with 20 seconds left when C.T. Thomas capped a 95-yard drive with a 4-yard touchdown run.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
