Football: Jesuit 13, Sarasota 9

TAMPA — Jesuit was down in the first half, but not out in the second. Trailing 9-0 after the first half (with a pair of missed field goals), the defense produced a shutout in the second half. Jesuit scored the go-ahead touchdown with a minute left to knock off Sarasota 13-9.

"We were able to make some nice adjustments at halftime and get back in the game," coach James Harrell said. "We were able to play solid defense and get the hard-nosed running going at the end when we needed it."

After Sarasota won the first half, its running game was shut down in the second. The Sailors didn't gain a first down until their fourth possession of the second half.

Jesuit (2-0) cut the lead to 9-6 when Bryce Walker (97 receiving yards) caught a 20-yard wheel route. The Tigers took the lead for good in the final minute when Patton Chillura hit Travis Johnson on a 15-yard lob.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.
