Tampa Bay Tech 36, Brandon 16

BRANDON — Jonathon Williams threw for three scores and ran for another as Tampa Bay Tech rolled past Brandon.

The game was plagued by some sloppy play on both sides. The teams combined seven turnovers and a whopping 31 penalties, with the Titans flagged 20 times.

Brandon took a 10-0 lead into the second quarter. But Williams cut it to 10-6 with a 74-yard strike to C.J. Jackson. Then Tech reeled off 36 unanswered points.

Williams' 6-yard sneak gave TBT a 12-10 lead midway through the second quarter before third-quarter touchdown passes of 15 and 38 yards. The junior finished 9-of-15 for 221 yards and ran for 45.

Despite the loss, Brandon's (1-6) Sean Watson turned in quite a performance, accounting for all of the Eagles' points.

    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.
