CF Patriots 9, St. Johns River 6 (Baseball)
The Patriots fell behind 4-0 through 4 innings but scored 5 over the next 2 innings to pull ahead. Nick Radomski went 4-for-4 with a double and 3 RBI, Scott Schaub had 2 hits and 3 runs, Dane Moore had a hit and 2 RBI and Cole Miraglia added 2 hits and 2 runs scored.
Kyle Bright got a workmanlike win on the mound, yielding 6 hits and striking out 5 over 6 1/3 innings. Bullpen ace Kyle Leja recorded a long-form save in picking up the final 8 outs.
The win moves CF (18-27-1, 8-9 Mid-Florida Conference) to within a half-game of the 8-8 Vikings for the MFC's second and final postseason slot, though Lake-Sumter and Daytona State are also in play for the bid. The Patriots can return to .500 in conference play with a victory Saturday at Seminole.
