At Pinellas Park

Springstead 14, Pinellas Park 14

Spring game-breakers: Springstead trailed 14-0 before a fourth-quarter comeback led by quarterback Brian Beeker. First he connected on a fourth-and-5 pass to Ryan Buckley to keep a late drive alive. Then Beeker ran in a touchdown from 40 yards out to cut the deficit to 14-6. Eagles running back Devin Huff then brought the Eagles within two on a touchdown run. A two-point conversion pass from Beeker to Tom Hyde tied the score with 49 seconds left.

Audible 2: "We had a number of people make plays. Brian Beeker made good decisions. Huff made some nice runs. The intensity picked up as the game went on." — Vonada

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.
