Gainesville, FL – A five run ninth inning wasn't enough for the Santa Fe Saints on Monday afternoon in Palatka as SF came up a run short in a 7-6 loss to St. John's River State College. The loss ends a 12 game winning streak for NJCAA #1 Santa Fe.
Max McKinley started on the hill for the Saints and surrendered two runs in the first and two in the second for an early 4-0 Vikings lead.
Brock Edge got Santa Fe (35-7, 16-3 MFC) on the board with a solo homerun in the sixth. Needing six runs in the ninth to tie it up, SF came alive, scoring their first run on a passed ball before Garrett Mathes hit a three run homer to make it a two run game.
Santa Fe will get right back after it on Tuesday, April 17 at 3:00 p.m. in Gainesville against Daytona State College.
