813Area has new update 2 hours ago Rays prospects and minor leagues: Jones leads Hudson Valley All-Star contingent
Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/Getty Images Greg Jones is one of six Renegades named New York-Penn League All-Stars. Greg Jones, outfielders Hill Alexander and Garrett Hiott, infielders Jacson McGowan and Nick Sogard, and pitcher Joe LaSorsa were named New York-Penn League All-Stars Thursday. The game will be played in Staten Island on Aug. 20. I’m not an avid NYPL follower, so maybe there are a lot of deserving pitchers I’m not aware of. However, Edisson Gonzalez seems like an odd omission. He’s sixth in the league in ERA, third in strikeouts, and only has 10 walks in 51 1?3 innings. He’s had a fine season. Triple-A Durham Bulls (68-55) An error cost Durham in its 7-3 loss to Buffalo. Kevin Padlo’s solo home run in the top of the sixth tied the game at three, but the Bisons went ahead for good with four in the bottom of the sixth. All four runs were unearned due to a Padlo error. All four runs were charged to Aaron Sleger. Arturo Reyes allowed two runs in 3 1?3 innings. 1B Nate Lowe: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 2 K (.934)3B Kevin Padlo: 1-for-2, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K (1.120) RHP Arturo Reyes: 3 1?3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 1 K (4.93) Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (35-19) Tristan Gray homered again, but it wasn’t enough in Montgomery’s 6-4 loss to Jackson. It was his third home run in as many games, and Taylor Walls went deep too. But the Biscuits couldn’t hold a 4-2 lead as the Generals scored four unanswered runs to end the game. After Ryan Thompson opened and allowed a run in an inning, Kenny Rosenberg allowed four runs in 6 1?3 innings. DH Lucius Fox: 0-for-4, 1 K (.687)SS Vidal Brujan: 1-for-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI (.730)2B Taylor Walls: 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI (.783)CF Josh Lowe: 2-for-4 (.753)1B Tristan Gray: 1-for-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 K (.740) LHP Kenny Rosenberg: 6 1?3 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 7 K (3.28) Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (40-17) Tommy Romero pitched Charlotte to a 7-0 win over St. Lucie. After a one-start hiccup, his ERA dropped back below 2.00 with five scoreless innings. He struck out six. Kaleo Johnson’s sacrifice fly in the first gave the Stone Crabs a 1-0 lead, and Moises Gomez’s two-run homer in the seventh capped the scoring. SS Wander Franco: 1-for-4, 1 BB (.869)C Ronaldo Hernandez: 0-for-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K (.696)DH Moises Gomez: 1-for-2, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K (.703)LF Garrett Whitley: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K (.761) RHP Tommy Romero: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K (1.99)LHP Trey Cumbie: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K (1.54) Charlotte’s site offers this recap. Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (32-21) Alan Strong was sharp in Dayton’s 5-1 win over Bowling Green. The righty struck out a career-high nine and gave up just a run in 6 2?3 innings. Already leading 1-0, the Hot Rods went up 5-0 when Chris Betts and Osmy Gregorio both homered in the sixth. RF Ruben Cardenas: 1-for-3, 2 R, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 K (.791)1B Seaver Whalen: 2-for-3, 1 BB (.693)DH Chris Betts: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K (.756)3B Osmy Gregorio: 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K (.555) RHP Alan Strong: 6 2?3 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K (2.97) Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (36-24) Hudson Valley finally solved Connecticut in a 3-1 win over the Tigers. After identical 2-1 losses in a doubleheader Thursday, the Renegades were able to score without the benefit of a free, extra-innings baserunner. Nick Sogard tied the game with an RBI single in the third, and Hill Alexander drove in the tying and go-ahead runs. Jacob Lopez turned in a strong start, striking out seven and giving up just a solo homer in six innings. LF K.V. Edwards: 2-for-3, 2 R, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 CS, 1 HBP (.615)SS Nick Sogard: 3-for-4, 1 RBI (.676) LHP Jacob Lopez: 6 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K (2.40) Rookie Princeton Rays (26-29) Princeton couldn’t get out of an early hole in an 8-3 loss to Bristol. After the teams traded runs in the first inning, the Pirates went ahead for good with five in the next two innings, including four in the second. The Rays scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to inch closer, but Bristol immediately responded with two of its own a half inning later. Matthew Peguero was charged with four runs — three earned — in 1 1?3 innings. CF Aldenis Sanchez: 1-for-3, 1 R, 2 BB, 1 K (.645)RF Diego Infante: 2-for-3, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 BB, 1 K (.852)1B Jake Guenther: 1-for-3, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB (.866) RHP Matthew Peguero: 1 1?3 IP, 2 H, 4 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 0 K (6.39) Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (19-21) The GCL Rays were off.

813Area has new update 2 hours ago Notes and highlights from the Bucs 16-14 preseason victory
Photo by Julio Aguilar/Getty Images Recapping the game against the Dolphins. - The Buccaneers defense forced Miami’s offense into a three-and-out on the opening possession. Tampa Bay’s defense has held preseason opponents scoreless in nine of their last 10 opening drives dating back to 2017. - RB Dare Ogunbowale led the team in rushing with 13 carries for 34 yards, while hauling in three receptions for 54 yards. A 41-yard reception for Ogunbowale in the fourth quarter was the longest play from scrimmage for either team. - K Matt Gay got the Buccaneers on the board with a 32-yard field goal in the second quarter to cap off an 11-play, 36-yard drive lasting 5:20. The made field goal knotted the score at 3-3. He was called upon again after the Buccaneers fell behind 14-13 with 0:38 on the clock, as he delivered a 48-yard game-winning field goal that finished off a five-play, 45-yard drive. Gay has hit a field goal of 45 yards or longer in each of his first two NFL preseason games. - Back in the second quarter, the Buccaneers recorded back-to-back sacks on Miami quarterback Josh Rosen. Tampa Bay OLBShaquil Barrett notched the first, dropping Rosen for a seven-yard loss. Barrett has racked up 7.0 sacks in the preseason throughout his career (4.0 in 2015, 2.0 in 2014). The latter was a seven-yard sack from OLB Patrick O’Connor, who has 2.5 sacks in his preseason career (1.0 in 2017, 0.5 in 2018). - Later in the second quarter, LB Devante Bond took down Rosen for a 2-yard loss, securing the first preseason sack of his career. - OLB Demone Harris collected Tampa Bay’s fourth sack of the night, knocking Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick back seven yards in the third quarter. The sack was Harris’ first during the preseason. He also led the team with two tackles for loss, while finishing tied for fourth on the team with three total tackles. - K Cairo Santos connected on his first field goal attempt of the 2019 preseason, converting a 23-yard kick to bring the Buccaneers to a 6-6 tie with the Dolphins, with 9:59 to play in the game. - With the Dolphins on Tampa Bay’s 13-yardline, Jamel Deangenerated the Buccaneers lone turnover in the game, intercepting Miami QB Jake Rudock in the back of the end zone. Dean also led the team with two passes defensed. - Following Dean’s interception, QB Ryan Griffin led Tampa Bay on a six-play, 80-yard drive in 2:48, connecting with TE Tanner Hudson in the end zone to put the Buccaneers ahead 13-6 with just 3:38 remaining in the game. Hudson led the team with six receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown. He now has a touchdown in each of the team’s first two preseason games, totaling 13 receptions for 177 yards in that span. Griffin completed 14-of-21 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown, earning a 113.4 passer rating. He has combined for 331 yards and two touchdowns through the opening two contests. - Players making Buccaneers preseason debut: S Darian Stewart, G Salesi Uhatafe - Players making NFL preseason debut: S John Battle
813Area has new update 2 hours ago Quick Strikes: The Athletic ranks Tampa Bay Lightning farm system 23rd in league
Photo by Mark LoMoglio/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images K. The Bolts Perhaps this eternal underrating of Tampa Bay Lightning draft picks and prospects is one of Al Murray’s strength as a scout. I’m not sure where The Athletic’s Corey Pronman would’ve ranked Tyler Johnson or Yanni Gourde upon first glance, but I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have forseen their consistent roles on a playoff team. So keep underrating the Lightning farm system; bless your hearts. What do you guys think? 2019 NHL farm system rankings: No. 23 Tampa Bay Lightning [The Athletic, paid content] Tampa’s AHL team, Syracuse, was dominant last season on the backs of a lot of young players. Several players took significant steps forward in the AHL, as well as Tampa seeing a few late-round college picks start to generate real interest. The top-end isn’t amazing, but there’s real quality depth here to help supplement the existing core. (How Pronman ranked prospects can be found here: Pronman: 2019-20 NHL farm system rankings) Here’s more stuff. Lightning offseason workouts range from squats to swimming with parachutes [Tampa Bay Times, paid content] “We are not powerlifters,” Lambert said. “I don’t care if an athlete comes in and lifts 100 pounds at a certain movement. My goal for them isn’t to lift 200 by the end of the summer.” The goals are to get stronger, and to do so in a way to prevent injury now and in season. The offseason starts with time off, then work on strength ratios for injury prevention and finally performance. Ugh, it’s nearly that time again, isn’t it? EXPANSION PLAN: PROJECTING THE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING’S PROTECTION LIST FOR THE 2021 EXPANSION DRAFT [THN] At the Vegas expansion draft, Tampa Bay paid up, shipping Nikita Gusev to the Golden Knights to ensure Jason Garrison was selected. Garrison, who was no big loss, played eight games for Vegas and the Lightning wouldn’t have been able to afford Gusev anyway. With Tampa Bay’s breadth of talent right now, it’s unlikely the Lightning will bother swinging a deal to protect a player this time around – but who should the club risk? Trading Adam Erne opens up training camp competition for Tampa Bay Lightning [Raw Charge] With the Tampa Bay Lightning trading Adam Erne to the Detroit Red Wings, the team has opened up another one of the 13 roster spots for forwards to competition in training camp. Erne was a second round pick of the Lightning in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. His projection was that of a top six complimentary power winger with size. He’s not overly tall at 6’1”, but he had a wide frame that promised plenty of weight to allow him to be physical. [Insert eyeroll] Here’s another one of our terrible, low-ranking farm team prospects. Tampa Bay Lightning 2019 Top 25 Under 25, #15: Gabriel Fortier is a relentless force at center [Raw Charge] The lowest rank Fortier got was at #18 by the readers. As for the masthead, Matt and Tracey put him #16 behind a couple AHLers whom they feel to be closer to sure things. I think as the season goes on, Fortier’s stock will rise. And once he gets on the Syracuse Crunch at the end of the season, he’s going to be something we should all be very excited about. Hey Alex, you gonna get one and play it with me? — Syracuse gets its own official Monopoly game: What’s our Boardwalk and Park Place? [Syracuse.com] Nicotera and her colleague Karie Ballway did spill one secret, though: The Marriott Syracuse Downtown (formerly Hotel Syracuse) will be our Boardwalk, and the Syracuse Crunch hockey team will be Park Place. This is the coolest thing for Orlando residents: Wanna see a Solar Bears game for free? Use your library card! [Orlando Weekly] [Click Orlando] Participants in Local Wanderer can reserve free passes to these institutions online at: ocls.info/localwanderer. Each pass gives cardholders a 14-day check-out period to show the reservation and card for free admission. Some institutions are allowing up to three guests. Here’s my “this is a stretch but it’s summer” article link: Rogers hire Jake Parenteau as Assistant Coach [Elk River Star] He played four seasons with the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, including two Frozen Four appearances in 2012 and 2014. After playing for the Gophers, he went on to play professional hockey for the Iowa Wild and the Orlando Solar Bears before retiring. The Game What the Red Wings Can Expect from Adam Erne [THW] Last season, Erne earned a full-time spot on the roster with seven goals and 20 points in 65 games. Despite a brief injury, he stayed among the team leaders in hits, with 159. Unfortunately, his time on the ice was limited by the Lightning’s depth at forward. This relegated him to a bottom-six role, where he used his physicality to open up scoring lanes for his linemates. He earned a reputation as a reliable bottom-six forward for his responsible use of his ice time and low penalty minutes.

Amazing, the "Michael Jordan" of Brazilian jiu-jitsu is teaching right here in Wesley Chapel! Marcio "Pe de Pano" Cruz is considered as the best to ever step on the mat. I'm so happy to find this academy.

Pros: There's no doubt about it, this is the best place to learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu outside of Rio de Janeiro.

Cons: No place for egos

It's an Italian restaurant but my favorite is the black skillet-roasted mussels. Delish! Always good entrees and solid service. When the weather is nice, a perfect spot to sit outside and enjoy the Hyde Park view.
