Hillsborough: Baseball super 7, stats

Baseball Super Seven

(records through Wednesday)

1. Jesuit (20-0): Tigers added another national No. 1 ranking this week — this one from Baseball America then went out and drubbed Brooklyn (N.Y.) Xaverian 11-1 in the first round of their Easter tournament. Not very hospitable.

2. Alonso (19-2): The Ravens' strength is pitching, but Alonso has three players with 24 RBIs. Saladino co-MVP Tyler Ding (.485 avg., 24 RBIs, 20 SB) has done it all.

3. Armwood (19-4): Hawks have won nine of their past 10, and from the looks of things their pitching combination of Robert Benincasa and Zack Powers can lead them deep into the postseason.

4. Gaither (16-5): The Cowboys are finding ways to win. Being battle-tested after playing in arguably the area's toughest district will help from here on out. And a trip to the Saladino final gives a team that starts three seniors the confidence it needed.

5. Brandon (16-5): Might get top run producer Roderick Shoulders back in time for districts, the perfect remedy for a season plagued by injury. If pitching holds up, the Eagles could be dangerous.

6. Plant (16-6): Continued to beat up on district competition with a 13-1 win over Chamberlain. Senior Mychal Givens has 12 extra-base hits (eight doubles, one triple, three homers).

7. Tampa Catholic: (15-5): A 10-0 loss to Alonso in the Saladino quarters means the jury is still out on the Crusaders, but after that 13-game winning streak, who can argue that won't be a factor in the Class 3A postseason.

Just missed the cut: Bloomingdale (13-7), Hillsborough (12-8), Spoto (12-8), Sickles (9-9)

  1. St. Petersburg's Sebastien Bourdais vows to return for IndyCar finale

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Sebastien Bourdais was in one of the best race cars he'd ever had, so fast that most of his competitors thought he would win the pole for the Indianapolis 500.

    Sebastien Bourdais does physical therapy at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana in Indianapolis. Bourdais broke his pelvis, hip and two ribs in an accident during qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 on May 20. He plans to return home to St. Petersburg soon to continue therapy. [Associated Press]
  2. Yellow cards stall Rowdies offense in tie with St. Louis


    ST. PETERSBURG — It's not the result they wanted, but it certainly could have been worse. Neill Collins' 87th-minute header off a corner kick was the reward the Rowdies settled for Saturday night during a 1-1 draw with St. Louis before an announced 6,068 at Al Lang Stadium.

  4. Numerous lapses add up to frustrating Rays loss to Twins

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — While the Rays made some good defensive plays, threw a couple of big pitches when they needed to and got a few, and just a few, key hits, there were some obvious things they did wrong that led to them losing Saturday's game to the Twins 5-3:

    Rays reliever Tommy Hunter says the Twins’ tiebreaking homer came on a pitch that was “close to where I wanted it.”
  5. Rays journal: Steven Souza Jr. laughing right along after comical dive

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — Souza being Souza.

    That seemed to be the best way to describe the entertaining — and comically bad — dive Rays RF Steven Souza Jr. attempted in Friday's game, and the good humor he showed in handling the fallout, including a standing ovation his next at-bat from the …
