Chamberlain 13, Gaither 6

TAMPA — Chamberlain played well enough on both sides of the ball to ruin Gaither's homecoming and leave with a 13-6 victory.

For Chamberlain (1-7, 1-1), the Class 5A, District 5 win ensures the Chiefs won't go winless for the first time since 1966. The loss was especially frustrating for Gaither (1-6, 0-2), which moved the ball well but couldn't score enough.

Of the four times Gaither drove deep into Chiefs territory, it scored one touchdown. Twice quarterback Zach Condon was intercepted; the Cowboys turned the ball over on downs on the other drive.

Chamberlain made the most of its chances, taking a 7-0 lead on Andra Hubbard's 7-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. Gaither struck back minutes later when a long drive ended with a 1-yard scoring run by Condon.

A 54-yard touchdown run by Chamberlain's Blake Bell with 11:14 left was the difference.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by Cubs LF Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
