SANFORD, Florida - Prior to Friday's final game of the series with Santa Fe, there seem to be an air of frustration around The Jack. The season is at a critical point and the last two losses were filled with missed opportunities. Through four and a half innings SSC seemed to be in trouble of extending their longest losing streak of the season (still two games).

Things changed in the bottom of the fifth. Kenny Rodriguez cranked one to left with two on and the Raiders took a 3-2 lead over the Saints. Santa Fe tied the game in the top of the 7th, 3-3. SSC then added another 3 runs in the bottom of the 7th and a single run in the 8th for what appeared to be a comfortable 7-3 lead. 

Santa Fe scored two in the top half of the 9th when Haden Erbe was brought in to secure the final out. Louis Davenport (6-1) got the win while throwing 10 strike outs (3 ER, 5 hits, 3 BB).

SSC collected 10 hits on the day and in addition to Rodriguez' home run, the offense was lead by Tim Dixon (2-5, 2 R) and Travis Sankovich (3-3, 1 BB, 1 R). 

Seminole will travel to Lake Sumter on Saturday (1 p.m.). Host those same Lake Hawks on Monday (3 p.m.) and finish the three game series in Leesburg on Wednesday (3 p.m.).
