Loss leaves West Hernando on brink
By RICHARD BURTON
Published July 24, 2005
HOMOSASSA SPRINGS - The West Hernando Senior Baseball team (15-and-16-year olds) has its back against the wall at the Section 7 Tournament at Dazzy Vance Park.
It wasted strong pitching from Jonart Paz and couldn't solve Northwest (Pasco County) starter Kyle Clements in a 2-1 loss on Saturday.
West Hernando now must win twice today, against Palma Ceia and Palm Harbor.
Clements allowed two hits and walked one while striking out eight.
West Hernando's only offense came in the fourth on Paz's home run. Clements didn't allow a hit the rest of the way, allowed only two baserunners and retired the final five batters he faced.
Paz, allowed five hits in six innings and allowed unearned runs in the first and third.
Jeff Ballou had two hits and scored once for Northwest while Shawn Hinton also had two hits.
CRYSTAL RIVER - After losing 4-3 to Citrus Park, Dunnellon beat Meadowlawn 21-4 in five innings at Bicentennial Park. Danielle Burns, Christie Hanewinkel and Sara Wright scored three runs.
Wright tripled in a run, and Dallas Towns doubled in a run.
"I thought we came out kind of flat (in the) morning," Dunnellon manager Steve Goodloe said.
"I said, "Guys, just play your game.' Half of this team was on the Majors team that won state last year. They have been in these positions before."
JUNIOR BASEBALL: Dominick Santini hit a two-run homer and Dylan Brandes earned the win as Seminole beat Inverness 10-5.
MAJOR BASEBALL: Zachary Jackson struck out 11, walked four and allowed two hits to help Citrus Park beat Central Citrus 6-0. Also, Taylor Griffie earned the win in Tampa Northside's 12-2 victory against Crystal River.
MINOR BASEBALL: A two-run error in the sixth gave Seminole a 6-4 victory against Dunnellon.
11-YEAR-OLD BASEBALL: Nate Richardson earned the win in Seminole's 7-3 victory against Crystal River.
