SANFORD, Florida - On Monday night, the #5 (FCSAA) Seminole State Baseball team defeated South Florida State College 3-0 at Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium. Louis Davenport got the start and win (2-0, 7 IP, 5K,W). Khalil Wilson (right) came on in two innings of relief, earning his second save of the year. 

Kobe Barnum drove in the winning run in the third. But it was back to back triples in the bottom of the bottom of the eighth that sealed the victory. Justin Holmes hit a shot to right center that was followed by Travis Sankovich's screamer to the same section of the ballpark. Sankovich reached home on an error by the catcher a few pitches later.

After a sloppy loss on Friday afternoon which snapped an 8-game winning streak, the Raiders have responded with two wins to start a new streak. The Raiders will hit the road for a pair of games (Wednesday at South Florida State and Friday at Hillsborough Community College) before returning to the Jack for a Saturday doubleheader (12 noon vs. CCBC Catonsville from Maryland). 

This was the second shut out win in two years for the Raiders during their annual appearance at the venerable old ball field. Last year, SSC defeated Indian River in a 1-0, 10 inning thriller as Ethan Koehler threw 9 innings of one hit ball.
