Football: Steinbrenner 28, Strawberry Crest 0

DOVER — Steinbrenner dominated Strawberry Crest on both sides of the ball Friday in a 28-0 rout. The Chargers' offense has yet to find its stride, scoring 12 total points while allowing 145.

On the Warriors' second drive, Kendall Pearcey outran the Chargers (0-3) on a 96-yard race to the end zone. Neither team could do much until the closing minute of the first half when Jake Carroll added yards after the catch for a 45-yard touchdown from Curtis Fitch. The two would connect again later in the game.

Steinbrenner's defense made one critical mistake. On fourth down 10 yards from the goal line, Strawberry Crest tried to force a play that turned into an interception. The pick gave Steinbrenner (2-1) worse field position than an incompletion, leaving the Warriors against their own end zone.

The Chargers' defense held the Warriors to a short punt.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
