Nature Coast ace goes the distance in a 6-2 win over South Sumter.

BROOKSVILLE - Food might be the best tool for positive and negative reinforcement.
If a kid draws a stick figure on the living room wall in crayon: No ice cream for desert. If a kid steps on the mound and pitches a win: He gets a Big Mac from McDonald's.
That's how the Daniels family has done it since Bryan Daniels was a kid pitching in youth leagues. So after Daniels pitched a complete game with 12 strikeouts to lead Nature Coast to a 6-2 win over South Sumter on Thursday afternoon, a Big Mac was soon to follow.
"Yeah, they've been doing that since I was little," Daniels said after the game. "But now, since I can drive, they just give me the money and I go get it myself."
Minutes after the game ended, Daniels was icing his right shoulder. It was the first complete game of his varsity career. Something he said he couldn't do last year because he wasn't strong enough.
On Thursday, Daniels threw fastballs, he threw curves, he threw changeups. Coach Dan Garofano said he decided to keep Daniels in once he realized the speed of his fastball hadn't dropped in the sixth inning.
The Sharks (4-3, 2-1) jumped to an early lead when Travis Murray knocked in a two-run homer. After Kenny Trevarton walked in a run and the Sharks scored on an error, it was 4-0 and Daniels kept that lead.
Ryan Erbe continued his hot hitting, going 2-for-2.
