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.

    MINNEAPOLIS — The Rays sure made it interesting Sunday, taking an early lead, watching their beleaguered bullpen blow it, rallying to tie in the ninth, battling the Twins to take a lead in the 14th then giving it up again.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
