Nature Coast Downs Weeki Wachee 18-8
Nature Coast had their bats heat up on a cold night as they beat visiting Weeki Wachee 18-8 on Tuesday.
A Nick Scarangella double saw Weeki Wachee (0-9) go up 2-0 early in the top of the second.
Scarangella took the mound in the bottom half and the Sharks (5-2) countered with seven runs of their own.
A wild pitch and RBI single from Reilly McCarthy would see the score even at two before Ryan Lotito and J.P. Gates each knocked in two on singles of their own.
Brandon Riera would knock in an RBI single as well to end the inning with a 7-2 advantage for Nature Coast.
The third would be worse for the visitors as the Sharks turned the game into a blowout, plating 11 runs.
Zach Funkhouser singled in a run before Lotito and Gates followed with 2-RBI hits of their own. Brandon Frangione, Alex Renee and Willie Coffey would each knock in runs in the frame as well.
Weeki Wachee would score six runs in the fourth, but couldn’t get a seventh in, ultimately losing via a 10-run mercy rule in five innings.
Nature Coast plays host to Springstead Wednesday night, while Weeki Wachee looks to rebound at home against Central on Thursday.
