Jesuit powers past stubborn Auburndale 8-4

Jesuit, powered by home runs from Geoff Goetz and Terry McCormick, defeated Auburndale 8-4 in the first round of the Blue Devil Classic at Jim Whitney Field on Monday night.

The Tigers (13-2), ranked third in the country by USA Today and Baseball America, built leads of 5-0 in the second inning and 6-1 in the third. But they struggled to put away the Bloodhounds (7-8), whom they had defeated 18-2 this season. "We did some nice things tonight offensively, and they kept battling back," Jesuit coach John Crumbley said.
