Football: Pasco 34, Anclote 0

HOLIDAY — Unbeaten Pasco remained the class of the county Friday, topping district foe Anclote 34-0.

It did not take long for the Pirates (4-0, 1-0) to get on the board. On their first possession, running back JaJuan Henry took it up the gut for a 1-yard score. After missing a 37-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining in the first quarter, David Emmanuel intercepted Anclote quarterback John Forgione, taking it back 12 yards as the Pirates led 13-0.

The second quarter belonged to the referees as the teams combined for 11 penalties. On Pasco's last possession, Anclote (0-4, 0-2) ran into the punter, setting up first and 10 for the Pirates.

They capitalized seven plays later, as Emmanuel added his second touchdown of the half, with the 10-yard run making the score at halftime 20-0.

Emmanuel picked up right where he left off in the third quarter, scoring from 20 yards out.

The Pasco defense allowed only 63 yards of total offense to the Sharks while intercepting Forgione three times.

The Pirates' special teams got in on the action as well when Malik Johns returned a punt 75 yards for the final score.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
