Gainesville, FL – The NJCAA #23 Santa Fe (4-1-1) offense put up 14 runs on 18 hits on Friday afternoon and Ben O’Shea (2-0) struck out nine batters and surrendered only two hits in five innings of work as the Saints cruised past Pasco Hernando for their fourth win of the season. He has now struck out 18 batters in nine innings of work with only four hits given up.
The SF offense provided plenty of support for O’Shea, scoring four in the second inning on an RBI double by Jake Huxtable and back to back homeruns by Austin Lawrence (1) and Tim Remes (1).
Santa Fe added one in the third and seven more in the fifth. The first three came on a bases clearing double by Trey Griffin, and RBI double by Lawrence and RBI by Jordan Turner, Drew Doty and Jay Laurienzo.
