HAINES CITY - Jesuit continued to dominate its division Thursday as the Tigers captured the title with a 6-1 victory over second-seeded Bartow.
The Tigers (22-5) went 14-0 in district play. Junior Matt Brazis held Bartow to five hits over seven innings. He fanned 10 and gave up one walk.
The Yellow Jackets (20-6) surrendered four runs on one hit, an error, a walk and two hit batters in the first inning before they settled down.
Stephen Hunt drove in two runs for Jesuit.
"You take away that first inning and it's a different ball game," Bartow coach Tom Pfister said. "Their pitcher had a college-type slider. He was on. In high school ball most kids will not hit that pitch because they don't see it enough."
