Football: Blake 32, Lennard 7

TAMPA — For Blake, Thursday night marked its last home game of the season. And the Yellow Jackets didn't disappoint their fans, defeating Lennard (1-7, 1-5) 32-7.

Blake did the majority of its damage in the first half. In the first quarter, junior quarterback Zain Gilmore connected with DeAndre James and Darreon Telfair for two touchdowns. Running back Gregory Peterson added a 3-yard touchdown run and Blake (3-5, 2-5) led 25-0 at halftime.

Not to be outdone by its offense, the Blake defense also played a major role, accounting for two touchdowns.

Toward the end of the game, a few of the Blake players sneaked behind coach Harry Hubbard and gave him a Gatorade bath in celebration.

"It always feels good to get a win," Hubbard said. "But I'm especially happy for our seniors. This is the last time that they will play for Blake High School at home. So I'm happy for them."

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.

    Tight end O.J. Howard, left, the Bucs’ first-round draft pick this year, was brought in to give QB Jameis Winston another big-play option.
