SANFORD, Florida - A mixed bag of results on Saturday. The Raiders got a big game 1 win vs. the #5 Palm Beach State College Panther. Josh Hancock got the start and the win (1-2). Jake Wright smashed two homeruns (his fourth and fifth of the year) to lead SSC offensively.
Game two looked like another win for the Raiders. Kelyn Fox was the starter and SSC cruised through the first five innings. The 4-0 lead shrank to 4-2 after the sixth. Palm Beach exploded for 6 runs in the seventh to ice the game.
February has been a pretty good month overall for the team, with one game remaining, the Raiders have gone 12-6. If SSC can replicate that record in March, the Raiders will be in the playoff hunt come April.
