SANFORD, Florida - With the upcoming start of the brutal Mid-Florida Conference on Saturday, the #3 (FCSAA) Raider Baseball team put some of the last touches on the non-conference season. There are still some bye-week games, and Seminole State faces the Thomas University JV team in a doubleheader on Wednesday, but SSC stands at 16-4 and is playing some its best baseball.

During the doubleheader sweep of #10 (FCSAA) Palm Beach State, the Raiders used dominant pitching and timely hitting to win 6-2 and 5-1 (both games 7 innings). Louis Davenport (3-0) pitched all seven, surrendering a run in the first and another in the seventh, scattering seven hits and striking out 8. Game two was a similar result for Jakob Barker (1-1) who picked up his first win of the year (Khalil Wilson collected his third save). Barker allowed six hits, striking out five and walking three. 

On the offensive side Alejandro Figueredo, Jake Zarrello, Edward SurinachJustin Holmes, Kenny Rodriguez all hit homeruns on the day. Justin Holmes (2), Alejandro Figueredo (3), Kenny Rodriguez (2), Travis SankovichCorey King, Jake Zarrello, and Edward Surinach all knocked in runs.

The Raider defense had just one error over the 14 innings.

On Friday, Seminole State gave the visiting St. Pete Titans a five run lead after one. Starter Haden Erbe (4-0) then settled down and the Raider bats began to chip away at the deficit. SSC picked up two in the second, fourth and fifth and added the winning margin in the sixth. Justin Holmes (2), Corey King, Kenny Rodriguez (2), Edward Surinach and Travis Sankovich all added to their RBI totals.

After Wednesday's doubleheader, which is set to be streamed through this site, Seminole will travel to Ocala on Saturday to open the Mid-Florida Conference at perennial power College of Central Florida (1 p.m.).
