Matt Quevedo gets it done on the mound and in the lineup for Tampa Catholic.

TAMPA - Starting pitcher Matt Quevedo led Tampa Catholic 6-1 past Jesuit on Tuesday for the Crusaders' first win over the Tigers since 2001.
Quevedo (2-0) pitched a complete game and yielded just one run (unearned). He struck out three and walked three for the Crusaders (5-0).
"I had a great defense behind me," Quevedo said. "And a lot of run support. That helped a lot."
A big part of that run support was his doing.
Batting third in the lineup, Quevedo padded Tampa Catholic's lead with three RBIs, including a two-run home run.
He said hitting well translated to better pitching.
"It definitely motivated me to finish it off," Quevedo said of going the distance. "After that hit, I got really pumped up. I wanted to finish it myself."
The Crusaders gave up an early run in the first inning but made up for it in the bottom of the inning with a pair of runs. Quevedo got the first of his RBIs on a sacrifice fly and a second run scored on a Jesuit error.
Tampa Catholic struck again in the fourth inning when Jason Robb scored on a fielder's choice.
The Crusaders opened it up in the sixth inning. With two outs, shortstop Ralph Valiente completed a 3-for-4 day with an RBI single before Quevedo's two-run blast.
"It's coming together," said coach Tom Reidy, who was 0-5 in three seasons against the Tigers. "I could lose every game, but if I beat Jesuit twice a year I would keep my job."
The loss was the first for Jesuit (5-1) this season.
