4A, Mitchell (21-3) at Dunnellon (29-1)

What's next? Winner advances to state, plays the winner of Cardinal Gibbons-Jensen Beach.

Skinny: There's arguably no tougher opponent standing between the Mustangs and a state title than Dunnellon. The defending Class 4A state champion has lost just one game in two seasons. This year, they've outscored opponents 319-27 thanks to a well-rounded lineup. The Tigers are led by Kasey Fagan, who is 23-1 with 219 strikeouts and a 0.62 ERA. She and sister Sami Fagan also lead with their bats, both with averages above .580; Kasey has a whopping 61 RBIs and eight home runs. Mitchell ace Cortney Radke will have her hands full and will need plenty of run support.

A, Hernando Christian (21-4) vs. Calvary Christian (17-7) at Ormond Beach Sports Complex

What's next? Winner advances to state, plays winner of Princeton Christian-Boca Raton Grandview Prep.

Skinny: The Lions advanced to their second straight region final under second-year coach Ernie Chatman with a 3-2 win over Seffner Christian. Eighth-grade ace Courtney Riddle held firm in the late innings, striking out the final two batters with a runner in scoring position. She has gone 15-4 with 150 strikeouts. She also leads HCA in hitting with a. 476 batting average, 22 RBIs, 10 doubles, four triples, 30 hits and 27 runs scored.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
