OCALA, Florida - The Seminole State Raiders spotted the Patriots of the College of Central Florida a 13-run lead. But unlike Saturday's loss to the same Patriots, SSC showed some fight. The Raiders scored 5 runs in the fifth and two more in the sixth for a final of 13-7.

Kelyn Fox (4-1) suffered his first loss of the year. Mike Christopoulos went 4 for 4, highlighting the Seminole State offense.
