A Jordan Butler 3-run home run over the scoreboard in center
in the fourth gave Alonso all it would need for the come-from-behind victory at
home against Newsome and earn Alonso a third-straight district title. Newsome
had taken a 1-0 lead in the top of the inning as an error allowed Zach Benson
(double) to score. The Ravens got another run later as Ryan Drumheller singled
and eventually scored on a wild pitch. Butler finished the game 3-for-3, and
Jared DeSantolo had two hits including a double. Franco Aleman worked a
complete-game on the mound for the Ravens, allowing just four hits, a walk and
striking out four. Next Tuesday, Alonso will host Port St. Lucie Treasure coast, while Newsome travels to Vero Beach for the region quarterfinals.
