Class 8A-District 5
At Plant

Steinbrenner 7, Sickles 4
A home run from Jordan Lala to right tied the game at 1-1 in the first, and the Warriors got a pair of three run innings highlighted by a Cam Coakley two-run double and a Patrick Morris two-run homer to put things out of reach for Sickles, and earn Steinbrenner a spot in Wednesday’s district final against top-seeded Plant. For the Gryphons, Trey Bacon had a pair of doubles and two RBI, and Dylan Eskew had an RBI double in the first.

Class 8A-District 6

At Riverview

Riverview 6, Plant City 1
Riverview busted a scoreless game wide open in the fifth as Tyler Roschfska led off with a single up the middle, and the Sharks piled on six runs keyed by RBI doubles by Garrett Thompson and Justin Farmer. Sharks senior Freddy Tarnok worked five, shutout innings, striking out six, and is now 7-0 on the season. Manny Martinez worked the final two innings of relief for the Sharks.

At Bloomingdale

Bloomingdale 3, Durant 0
Jacob Hedgpeth and the Bulls defense allowed just two Durant hits, as Hedgpeth earned a complete-game win for Bloomingdale at home. Nate Chevalier doubled home the eventual game-winner in the third, and the Bulls added two insurance runs in the fifth on a Bryce Hazzard RBI single and a RBI double from Cody Wilson.

Leto 10, Chamberlain 0
Senior Felix Rosario pitched five innings, allowing just a single hit as Leto defeated Chamberlain in the district play-in game.

Rosario also went 3-for-3 at the plate, with three RBI, Andreas Morales drove in a pair with two hits, and Jorge Carrero had a two-hit, two-RBI performance with the bat. Chamberlain’s Daryl Mitchell had a double in the loss.

Class 7A-District 9
At Brandon

Brandon 8, Lennard 0
Brandon junior BJ Carter picked an opportune time to toss his best game of the season, in a no-hit effort with eight strikeouts. Eagles hitters got Carter the runs he’d need early as a balk and a Jermaine White single gave Brandon a 2-0 lead in the first. Teddy Flynn was 2-for-3 for Brandon with an RBI as the Eagles had six hits.

Jake Jones and Duncan Hunter also had RBI doubles in the win.

Jefferson 2, Robinson 1
Nick Perez had an RBI sac fly and a run-scoring single to give Jefferson just enough to get by Robinson in the district semifinal Tuesday. Jake Coleman was 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in the Dragons’ win. Michael Dominguez earned the win on the mound tossing 5 1/3 innings and striking out eight, before Robby Martin entered in relief with the bases loaded and finished out the save. Andrew McMillan scored Robinson’s lone run in the third on a double steal.

Class 4A-District 4
At Calvary Christian

Tampa Catholic 10, Brooks DeBartolo 4
A big five-run first keyed by RBI doubles by Conor Grady and Christian Docobo put Tampa Catholic on the path to a win against Brooks DeBartolo. Docobo added another double to his two-RBI game, while Jonathon Rodrigues was 3-for-3 with three runs scored in the win. Calvin Rucker and Julian Pichardo (two) added RBI to the Crusaders totals.

Berkeley Prep 4, Tampa Prep 3
Berkeley Prep saw a three-run lead disappear in the sixth, but a Gordon Stetson RBI sac fly pushed the Buccaneers to a quarterfinal win over Tampa Prep. Carson Weekley was 3-for-4 and Stetson had a home run to center to get Berkeley Prep ahead early. A two-run double from Aaron Muench and a Charlie Vari RBI groundout even things for the Terrapins in the top of the sixth, but Khalib Bayona was able to lock down the seventh inning and make Stetson’s sac fly the winner.
