Football: Newsome 55, Bloomingdale 16

VALRICO — Will Worth accounted for three touchdowns for Newsome in a 55-16 triumph Thursday over Bloomingdale.

In the first half, Worth, a junior quarterback, ran for two touchdowns and connected on a 24-yard strike to Aaron West to stake Newsome to a 28-10 lead heading into halftime.

Worth rushed 29 times for 226 yards and accounted for 335 yards of total offense.

"He's a load to bring down, and a great character kid," Newsome coach Ken Hiscock said of Worth. "We look to him for guidance, and he leads us in the right way."

Newsome (6-4) dominated the game offensively and showed no signs of a letdown after last week's upset victory over Plant City. Although Bloomingdale (4-6) opened the scoring on Cody Crouse's 7-yard touchdown pass, Newsome went on a 34-3 run to put the game out of reach.

Clint Carnell and Keller Powers each had two rushing touchdowns for the Wolves, while John Hendricks capped the scoring with a 34-yard touchdown run with 43 seconds left in the game.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    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.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
