At Largo

Largo 42, Clearwater 39

Spring game-breakers: The Packers were led by two rising sophomores in running back Derek Doss and quarterback Juwan Brown. Doss proved a capable replacement for D.J.

He was also 3-for-4 passing for 51 yards. …The Packers defense struggled early but was able to get a stop when Largo needed it most. The defense was led by rising senior Chris Johnson and rising junior Lakeif Daniels. Johnson had a big stop to stall a Tornadoes drive late, and Daniels' came up with two interceptions. …The Tornadoes were led by quarterback Ryan Hagen, running back Bennie Niles and wide receiver Jon Hogan. Hagen was 15-of-25 passing for 266 yards and four touchdowns. Hogan had four receptions for 86 yards and three touchdowns of 15, 40 and 30 yards. Niles rushed 15 times for 72 yards and one touchdown.

    It turns out Caleb Brantley isn't quite the dirtbag that millions of people presumed. It's too bad the damage to his reputation and bank account is already done.

    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.

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



    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.
