Chiles Timberwolves 5
Lake Mary Rams 2
Conner Dunbar and Jake Taddeo combined for five hits from the heart of the lineup to lead Chiles to a Day 2 win over Lake Mary.

The Rams would answer back, thanks to a leadoff double off the bat of Brad Nenna. After advancing to third on a groundball, Nenna scored on a Brendan Rodgers groundout to tie the game at one apiece. Lake Mary would then take a 2-1 lead in the third inning, thanks again to Nenna. He led the inning off with a walk, and would advance to second on a wild pitch. John Radetsky would again move him to 3rd base on a groundball, and for the second time, Brendan Rodgers would bring him in, this time on a sac fly to left field, giving the Rams a 2-1 advantage.The lead would be short lived however as the Timberwolves clawed back in to the game with four runs in the top of the 4th.
With one out, Preston Kolke singled, and would steal 2nd. He would then advance to third base on a Tucker Criswell base hit. Alex Elsbenrd would then score Kolke on a fielder’s choice to tie the game. After a wild pitch advanced the two runners, a groundball from Josh McLanahan would score Criswell. Dunbar’s single scored Elsbernd, and Dunbar would come through again, this time with an RBI triple scoring Dunbar. Garrett Mathes, Jake Hunkiar and Dunbar would then hold Lake Mary scoreless for the rest of the game to secure the win for Chiles.
Dunbar would finish 3-4 with two runs and an RBI, along with the scoreless frame pitching. Taddeo was 2-4 with 2 RBI.
Seminole Seminoles 10
Tampa Prep Terrapins 6
The Seminole High offense looked like a new unit on Tuesday, scoring 10 runs after being shut out in day one of the FHSI.
The game started with Tampa Prep scoring twice in the bottom of the first inning thanks to a defensive miscue by Seminole. After the Seminoles were able to get a run back in the top of the 2nd, Tampa Prep then added two more runs in their half, making the lead 4-1. The game would turn quickly however, as the Seminole bats woke up in the top of the third frame. Dylan Stallings ripped a one out triple to plate Alec Deimer and Chris Rodriguez, who had reached on a walk and single, respectively. Jahmil Washington would then score Stallings on a single to knot the game at four. Seminole would score another three runs in the 4th inning thanks to a couple of Terrapin miscues. Keeping with the trend, they would again score three times in the 5th, highlighted by a two-run double by Stallings. Noah Doreste would hang on to the lead, and earn the complete game victory, scattering nine hits over seven innings. Stallings ended the game 2-5 with a run scored and four RBI.
Barron Collier Cougars 4
Palm Beach Gardens Gators 1
Barron Collier used a strong effort from starting pitcher Josh Saletko and one big inning on offense to advance to the next round of the winner’s bracket on Tuesday.
For the first four innings of the game, it was a classic pitcher’s duel between Saletko and PBG starter Anthony Maldonado, as each pitcher held the other team scoreless. After an out and a walk to begin the 5th inning, Maldonado seemed to be on the way to another scoreless inning when he induced the 2nd out of the frame on a pop up. However, the Cougars initiated a two out rally with a single off the bat of Jonathan Newman and another clutch hit from Marc Coffers. The Cougars’ leadoff man, who broke Monday’s game open with a two out double, worked his magic again taking a 1-2 pitch to the wall that would plate Logan Langham and Newman. Coffers would then come in to score on a wild pitch a few minutes later. The Gators would get a run across courtesy of a sac fly from Udie Summerall in the 6th inning, but it would be all the offense they could muster. Saletko finished one out short of a complete game, finishing with 6.2 innings pitched, allowing just one run on six hits with three strikeouts. Casey Santos struck out the final batter to earn the save. Coffers would finish 2-4 with two runs and two RBI.
William T. Dwyer Panthers 10
American Heritage Stallions 8
What was supposed to be a battle between two of the top pitchers in the country turned into an offensive showcase as the Dwyer Panthers held on to advance in the winner’s bracket with a hard fought win over American Heritage.
Tom Szapucki (Dwyer) and Hunter Bowling (AHS) each started the game with a scoreless frame and two strikeouts. Two errors by the Stallions allowed Dwyer to score twice in the 2nd inning. American Heritage would fight back in the bottom half, plating a run of their own when Bowling would come around to score on an RBI groundout from Justin Barney. They would then tie the game in the 3rd when Tyler Frank scored on a wild pitch. To open the Dwyer 4th inning, Dylan Jones would reach on a leadoff walk and advance to third base on a failed pickoff attempt. Myles Colangelo’s base hit would score him, while Colangelo would score three batters later on a base hit off the bat of Tyler Ahearn.
The Stallions bats would wake up in the 5th inning. After Jacob Swinarski earned a one out walk, Tyler Frank brought him in with a triple. Chris Canavan’s fielder’s choice would then bring in Frank. Jonathan India would single and Hunter Bowling would walk to load the bases, and a Zach Schneider sac fly would score Canavan. After a double steal put India on 3rd and Bowling on 2nd, India would then steal home on a daring play three pitches later. An error would bring in Bowling as well, ending Szapucki’s night and giving the Stallions a 7-4 lead.
Dwyer did not let the big inning dash their hopes of winning, and they came out hot in the top of the 6th. The first five batters reached base safely with Jack Iervolino, Dylan Jones and Myles Colangelo scoring. After a pop out, the offensive barrage would continue when Colton Rendon hit a bases loaded double to plate all three runner. Justin Allintof would hold the Stallion scoreless for the final two frames to earn the save. Myles Colangelo finished 3-4 at the plate with two run and two RBI.
