Solid outing from Partridge puts CDS over Steinbrenner

TAMPA – In likely his last start of the season, Carrollwood Day junior pitcher Gabriel Partridge was tasked with the challenge of facing the reigning Class 8A state champions Steinbrenner in a final regular season game. Partridge answered the call with a complete-game, 71-pitch victory as the Patriots topped the Warriors 7-1.

Partridge allowed just one run, on three hits and struck out a pair, and his offense chipped in early taking advantage of some Steinbrenner miscues in the field.

“Throughout the game, I knew these guys could hit … and I knew I had my defense behind me,” Partridge said. “Only two strikeouts and my defense did the rest of the work.”

Partridge hurt his heel early running the bases, but said he was riding the early lead and didn’t think about it much during the game.

“The rest of the game, I didn’t even feel it on the mound,” Partridge said. “I just felt it walking off after, I felt pretty good. It felt good to get my team a win.”

CDS junior Andre Hevesy had three singles
and drove in three in the win. 
Junior Andre Hevesy recorded the first of his three singles in the first inning to plate the first run, coupled with a pair of Warriors errors, a Noah Torres RBI the hard way getting hit by a pitch and a Grant Walford RBI fielder’s choice the Patriots had all the runs needed in this one. Zach Watts led off the second with a double, before Frank Furey (2-for-4) doubled him in, and Hevesy singled in two more.

“The key coach (Nick) Rodriguez always talks to us about, try and get the early lead,” Hevesy said. “We try and get that early lead, let our defense do the job behind the pitchers and keep the lead going.” 

The defense behind Steinbrenner starter Chase Camplong booted three balls and two more misplays in the outfield spelled disaster for the Warriors starter.

Carrollwood Day (17-8) had a pair of errors in the first, but Steinbrenner wasn’t able to capitalize.

Steinbrenner (15-7) finally got on the board as Jordan Lala tripled to lead off the fourth and scored on a Cam Coakley groundout. Patrick Morris doubled in the fifth, but was left stranded there by three pop fly outs.
