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. Seizures drove Jerry Kill out of coaching. He's back, and so are they


    PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Jerry Kill knew he was headed down a familiar path. Kill, the Rutgers offensive coordinator, acknowledged as much on a lunchtime walk around the Scarlet Knights' football stadium two weeks ago.

  2. Joe Maddon gets warm reception in return to the Trop

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon (70) talks with reporters during a press conference before the start of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Cubs game

    The Heater

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.

  5. At 6-8, Lightning prospect Oleg Sosunov comes with, and needs, a high ceiling

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — When Hall of Famer Phil Esposito first saw Lightning prospect Oleg Sosunov, he joked that the 6-foot-8 defenseman could reach the Amalie Arena ceiling.
