Santa Fe Saints Baseball Blanks Lafleche

Seven pitchers delivered 11 strikeouts in a combined effort on the mound to advance the Santa Fe Saints over the College Lafleche Dragons 10-0 Friday afternoon.  The win moves the Saints to 19-10-0 overall while remaining 4-4 in Mid-Florida Conference play.

The Saints opened the scoring in the second, when third baseman Colby Lusignan recorded a triple followed by a sac fly by Jonathan Camp to bring in Santa Fe’s first run. The next two innings went scoreless until third baseman/pitcher Caleb Denmark posted a single followed by a home run by Lusignan to move the Saints across the plate in the bottom of the fourth.

“I think we just game into this game thinking it was a nonconference game, a game that didn’t really mean a whole lot, those kinds of things, and I really tried to get their attention to make sure they knew we needed to play good baseball and try to stay sharp as our only game until next Wednesday… we’ve won three in a row in conference coming into today so playing well and being sharp was critical for us,” Santa Fe head coach Johnny Wiggs said.

The Dragons continued to struggle at bat, while the bottom of the fifth saw back-to-back RBIs by Denmark and Lusignan, respectively for the Saints.

On a Santa Fe error and walk, the Dragons saw themselves with bases loaded and no outs in the sixth. Solid pitching by left handed pitcher Luke Helms and Denmark allowed the Saints to get out of the inning leaving Lafleche scoreless. Santa Fe put the game away in the bottom of the seventh, scoring five runs.

It was a balanced performance on the mound for the Saints, with each pitcher allowing n0 runs and only giving up a combined six hits.

Lusignan provided a stellar offensive performance, hitting for the cycle with three runs scored and five RBIs.

“Colby had a great day, hit for the cycle. I think it’s only the second time since I’ve been here at Santa Fe in my seven years that somebody’s hit for the cycle; usually a pretty tough feat to get a single, double triple, and a home run in the same day so he was really good,” Wiggs said.

The Saints will resume conference play on Wednesday against Daytona State College.
