Santa Fe Saints Baseball Wins on Walk-Off against College of Central Florida 11-1

Saint’s Streak

Both teams came into the game with winning streaks, Santa Fe with a seven game streak and College of Central Florida with a 10 game win streak. The Saints blew open a tight game with a 10-run inning to seal a walk-off victory.

Winning Inning

 

The game started with the Patriots scoring a run and it took until the bottom of the third for the Saints to tie the game up from a Jonathan Logsdon rbi triple into right field that sent Parker Biederer home.

The game was tied 1-1 until the bottom of the sixth when the Saints blew the game open.  It began with an RBI single that sent Kyler Marquis home.

Then Brock Edge slammed a three run home run putting the Saints up 5-1. Directly after that, Isaiah Perry came up to bat and connected on the first pitch he received sending it out of the park on a solo home run putting the Saints up 6-1. A hit-by-pitch with bases loaded sent another Saint home and then Westbrook plated two more runs with a hit.  Edge hit the exclamation point on the inning with a two rbi hit that ended the game.

” It’s a confidence thing. It becomes contagious and hopefully we can carry that into our next game,” Saints coach Johnny Wiggs said.

The Saints now tie for second place in the conference with Seminole State College of Florida and will look to continue their eight game win streak when they face St. Johns River State College in an away conference game Wednesday night.
