OCALA, Florida - After two consecutive defeats to the #1 team in the NJCAA, the Seminole State Baseball team blasted the College of Central Florida 11-3 in 7 innings. Both of those losses were by the same score, 7-6, and left the Raiders wondering what it might take to get over the hump.
The sixth inning was the difference as SSC blew open a 4-3 game with a seven run outburst. The Raider bats were led by Justin Holmes (2-5, 3 R, 1 RBI), Corey King (3-5, 1 R, 1 RBI) and Tim Dixon (2-4, 1 R, 3 RBI).
The game started one hour later than scheduled. The delay was due to a travel issue with the Raider Express Bus. Officials scrambled to secure another bus. JB Bus Company would undoubtedly deserve the Qdoba player of the game award.
Seminole will host St. Johns River at The Jack on Friday at 2 p.m. to start a three game series.
