In their first game without their nine suspended players, Jesuit came to Robinson for an important district game. The Knights were looking to avenge their 1-0 loss at Jesuit back in February.Patrick Kiszla (’15) got the start for the Knights, turning in another impressive outing in his junior season. Kiszla fought his way through the first four scoreless before Robinson got on the board.

Darius Autry (’15) got the offense going with a solo home run to left field, the first of his high school career. The longball gave the Knights’ offense a lift, but they failed to drive in two runners later in the inning.

Kiszla continued his strong start until he ran into trouble in the sixth with two outs. With runners at first and second, the Tigers rattled off three straight singles to take a 3-1 lead. The tying single came from Danny Lastra (’14), followed by the go-ahead single off the bat of Adam Weekley (’16), before being capped off by an insurance run driven in by Nick Ortega (’16). Kiszla finished the night allowing the three runs on eight hits in six innings while striking out six.

Ronnie Ramirez got the start for the Tigers on Wednesday night, going seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out nine. The FSU commit held a 3-1 lead going to the bottom of the sixth, but the game was tied by a clutch 2-run double from T.J. Cole (’14).

Tommy Craparo (’15) replaced Kiszla, tossing two innings in relief. The winning runs came in the top of the eighth for Jesuit when Jacob Mocny (’15) singled in a run, followed by another RBI single by Steven Lugo (’16).

Robinson’s record drops to 6-9 while Jesuit improves to 13-2.
