Football: St. Petersburg 49, Gibbs 20

ST. PETERSBURG — Rashad Lewis ran for 220 yards and five touchdowns and the host Green Devils (6-0) overcame some sloppiness that briefly gave the Gladiators (1-5) hope.

Lewis scored TD runs of 32, 21, 35 and 13 yards in the first half as St. Petersburg led 35-6, then two fumbles and several penalties led to two rushing scores by Gibbs quarterback Devante White.

"We got way too complacent at half, and thought we'd just cruise to another win," St. Petersburg offensive lineman Taylon Culbreth said. "We got together on the sideline and committed ourselves to getting back to what we do."

Once the Green Devils recommitted, Lewis capped a 15-play, 85-yard drive with a 14-yard run.

White rushed for 105 yards and threw for 119 yards.

    Golf

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Jordan Spieth, right, comes from one back of Matt Kuchar, left, after 13, going birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie-par to win by 3.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.
