Gainesville, FL – Santa Fe ace Kevin Martin (4-2) tossed six quality innings on Monday afternoon against Florida State College-Jacksonville and Jake Reimer cleaned up, tossing three innings for his first save of the season. Martin scattered six hit over his six innings and struck out six. Reimer allowed just two hits and walked none.
The Saints (20-11, 8-4 MFC) took an early 3-0 lead in the top of the second on a two RBI single by Casey Scoggins and a RBI ground out by Roger Gonzalez. The Blue Wave got one run back in the bottom of the second but SF rallied for two more runs in the third on back to back bases loaded walks.
SF added insurance runs in the sixth and seventh on an RBI double from Ragsdale and a RBI single by Brady Roberson. That was all the run support Reimer would need as he shut down FSC-J the rest of the way.
George Ragsdale led the offense, going 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and a RBI. Brady Roberson was 3-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI, and Payson Smith finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored.
The Saints will open a big series against St. John’s River State College on Wednesday in Gainesville at 3:00 PM. Santa Fe is currently tied for first in the Mid-Florida Conference with SJRSC and College of Central Florida.
