Carrollwood Day 42, First Academy 27

TAMPA — In Carrollwood Day's first football game in school history, the Patriots got coach Lane McLaughlin his first win.

Led by junior quarterback Billy Embody, the Patriots accumulated more than 500 yards of offense. Embody was 14 for 23 for 308 yards and four touchdowns.

Leading 28-27 with just less than eight minutes left, the Patriots were facing third-and-5. After appearing to be sacked, Embody connected with junior Matt Monteilh for a 50-yard touchdown.

"(Embody) made a lot of plays like that in six-man last year," McLaughlin said.

After a turnover by Leesburg First Academy, Monteilh ran 25 yards for a score. Along with Darius Bing, the two rushed for 122 yards and had 255 receiving.

    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.

    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.
