5A softball: Bloomingdale survives 12 innings with Land O'Lakes

LAND O'LAKES — It took 12 innings, but Bloomingdale finally scratched across a run against Land O'Lakes.

And one was all it needed.

The Bulls broke a scoreless tie in the top of the 12th to advance to the region semis with a 1-0 win Tuesday night. Despite coming in with a team batting average of .378, Bloomingdale had no answer against Land O'Lakes starting pitcher Michelle Bradley.

The Bulls loaded the bases in the first inning, then didn't threaten again until the 12th when McKenzie Carter drove in Destani Frye for the winner with a hard two-out single to left.

Bradley allowed just six hits in her 12-inning complete game performance. Bradley added 14 strikeouts, but her counterpart was even more dominant.

Bulls starter Kaylyn Camacho also allowed just six hits, but struck out 20 Gators in her complete game performance.

Land O'Lakes almost ended the game in the bottom of the ninth when Sam Adamo smashed a hard single to center, but Jordan Alexander threw a strike to nail Meghan Sfraga at the plate to end the inning.

Jordan Alexander had two singles to lead Bloomingdale while Hannah Hensley drew four walks in her six at-bats.

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31

    Blogs

    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win

    Blogs

    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State

    College

    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
