Football: Gaither 35, Chamberlain 6

TAMPA — Gaither capitalized on a sloppy Chamberlain team in the second quarter, rolling off four touchdowns to blow open a close game.

The Chiefs were in a giving mood on opening night, turning the ball over three times in the first half. The Cowboys scored after each miscue.

As solid as the Gaither offense was, rolling up 159 yards on the ground amongst seven ballcarriers, its defense was pretty stout as well, limiting Chamberlain to 102 yards of offense.

The Chiefs scored in the game's final moments on backup quarterback Seth Jordan's 5-yard run.

Drive of the game: Gaither embarked on an 80-yard drive midway through the second quarter, capping it with a 20-yard TD pass from David Mazur to Anthony Outlaw.

Play of the game: Driving to the Gaither 5-yard line, Chamberlain QB Reggie Wester was intercepted in the end zone by Jovan Hammond. That set up a long Gaither scoring drive that broke the game open.

Stars of the game: Mazur was 8 of 11 for 95 yards with second-quarter touchdowns to Outlaw (20 yards) and Curtis Wilder (14 yards). Alex Rodriguez ran for 61 yards and scored twice, on runs of 26 and 13 yards.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
