Baseball: Tuesday’s region semifinal breakdown (5A-3A)

Published

on

The baseball playoffs continue Tuesday with region semifinal games in Classes 5A-3A. Admission is $7. Here is the schedule with outlooks for each area game, as well as team leaders for each matchup.

Class 5A

Jefferson (17-10) at Jesuit (26-2), 7

These teams know each other well. After all, this is their fifth meeting this season. The Tigers, ranked No. 1 in the classification, No. 2 statewide and No. 5 nationally by MaxPreps, have won each of the previous four matchups by three or more runs, including a 10-3 victory in the 5A-7 district final two weeks ago.

Island Coast (21-7) at Osceola (19-6), 7

The host Warriors have won 11 of their last 13 games. The two losses (against Mitchell and Northeast) were each decided by a run. In the region quarterfinals, Osceola beat Fort Myers 5-3 in eight innings. Eli Daraphet and Luke Percifield each had three hits and Andrew Kopleman and CJ Thornton each had two. The Gators, ranked No. 8 in the classification by MaxPreps, advanced with 4-3, nine-inning win over Northeast in the quarterfinals.

Land O’ Lakes (18-8) at Ocala Vanguard (16-10), 7

The Gators are in the region semifinals for the first time since 2000. Brian Holiday played a big role in helping Land O’ Lakes end that drought. The senior pitcher threw a complete-game shutout, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out 18 in a region quarterfinal win over Lake Minneola. Though the Knights are 3-4 in their last seven games, they won the game that mattered most, beating River Ridge 5-2 in last week’s quarterfinals.

Both teams are ranked among the top nine in the classification by MaxPreps (the Sharks are No. 9 and the Raiders are No. 5). Nature Coast has won five of its past six, the lone loss coming by a run against Bishop McLaughlin in the regular season finale. Rockledge is on a 15-game win streak, including a 1-0 victory over Hernando in the region quarterfinals.

The host Wildcats are in the region semifinals for the first time 2015. They did it by beating Tarpon Springs 6-2 in last week’s region quarterfinals. Austin Coultas and Dylan Chana each had two hits and Zachary Showalter allowed two runs and recorded nine strikeouts. The Falcons are making their sixth straight region semifinal appearance. Dunedin has been dominant during its current seven-game win streak, outscoring foes by a combined 70-9.
