2A-10 softball: Bishop McLaughlin rolls past Calvary

SPRING HILL — Before the storm clouds and lightning could impact the Class 2A, District 10 semifinal between Bishop McLaughlin and Calvary Christian, the Hurricanes poured on 14 runs off of only six hits in a 14-3 win Monday evening.

"We have never advanced past the first game of districts," Bishop McLaughlin coach John Yaratch said. "When you have beaten somebody twice during the season, you always worry about that third game because you never know what is going to happen."

Bishop McLaughlin (13-9) started the barrage in the first inning, scoring six runs in the first, two in the second and six in the third to close out the scoring. McLaughlin benefited from seven errors and 11 walks by Calvary. Hurricanes freshman pitcher Megan Malone (four strikeouts) pitched four strong innings, allowing no runs on two hits. The Warriors scored three runs in the top of the fifth to avoid the shutout.

The win puts Bishop McLaughlin in the district championship game and state playoffs for the first time. On Thursday, the Hurricanes host the winner of today's semifinal between Tampa Prep and Indian Rocks Christian.

    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 funk they are in right now.

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — with a season-high seven-plus innings. It wasn't only that he got deep into the game but how, using his high-octane fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC


    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.
