St. Petersburg, FL – The Santa Fe Saints continued their winning ways on Wednesday afternoon in St. Petersburg, defeating the Titans in extra innings 9-3.  The win moves the FCSAA #2/Baseball America #14 Saints to 12-2 on the year.

SF trailed 3-1 heading into the eighth inning but tied the score on a two out, two RBI double by sophomore catcher Haydn Cano.
