Football: Riverview 21, Leto 6

RIVERVIEW — Without throwing a pass, Riverview's offense overcame an equally impressive Leto ground game in a 21-6 victory for the Sharks on Friday. The Sharks and Falcons each had a running back break 100 yards.

Riverview's Lasander Washington opened the game with a kick return into Leto territory. The next play, he sprinted 40 yards only to be stripped on one 1-yard line. It was one of three Riverview fumbles lost. Washington surpassed 100 yards on a 36-yard sprint that put the Sharks (2-0) ahead by 20.

Leto (0-3) looked strong coming out of the half but penalties and a botched snap stalled the drive. Falcons running back Andre Simpson had 30 carries for 118 yards and a late touchdown.

Riverview held Falcons quarterback Adner Grajales to short passes.

    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.

    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.
