For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.
GULFPORT - Boca Ciega junior Donnie Albro made one mistake Tuesday night.
He let Northeast put the ball in play.
Betrayed by his defense, Albro nearly pitched the Pirates to their biggest win this season before the Vikings rallied for a 5-1 win at Hoyt Field.
"We just found a way to win," said shortstop Nick Shaw, whose two-run single in the fifth gave Northeast the lead for good. "(Bogie) was definitely hyped up before the game. They wanted to get us out of their early."
The Pirates (7-3) scored in the first inning, but failed to do as much damage as they could have after loading the bases with no outs. After two walks and an error, Josh Bowman struck out the next seven and settled into a pitcher's duel with Albro.
Making just his second start this season due to a back injury, Albro was outstanding for four innings. He allowed just one hit, a slow dribbler down the third-base line by Zach Taylor, and struck out 10 of the 12 batters he retired.
But in the fifth inning, Northeast caught up to his pitches and put them in play.
Joey Tribou led off with a single, and Taylor grounded one hard to first that escaped Ian Thompson's glove, but not the infield, to put runners on first and second.
Austin Smith followed with a double-play grounder to second baseman Matt Miller, whose errant backhand flip to second allowed Tribou to score and tie it. The next pitch was bunted back to Albro, whose throw to first was dropped by Miller to load the bases. After a pop out and failed suicide squeeze put Bogie on the brink of escaping, Shaw sat on a breaking pitch and got it, driving a curveball to left-center for two more runs.
The Viking leadoff hitter has 20 RBIs in nine games.
Albro left after the fifth, allowing three hits and striking out 10. Though Northeast added two runs in the sixth, it didn't need them as Bowman (3-1) finished off his 112-pitch effort by striking out Kyle Hobelmann.
Bowman, a junior, allowed a season-high three hits, but struck out 13 and hasn't allowed an earned run in his past three outings.
OLDSMAR CHR. 7, TAMPA BAPTIST 4: Jared Merritt and Jacob Pullen each homered for Oldsmar. Pullen finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs; Matt Mangru (2-0) got the win in relief, striking out 10.
DUNEDIN 3, GEORGE JENKINS 1: Dunedin's (9-1) Jacob Rogers blasted his third homer of the season and Bryan Garcia went the distance. Rogers sent a 3-0 pitch over the right-centerfield wall to give the Falcons a 1-0 third-inning lead.
He then put Dunedin ahead 2-1, scoring on a sacrifice fly by Billy Perillo in the sixth.
