Central Florida absorbed a discouraging 18-8 loss to Daytona State on Saturday that moved the Patriots to the edge of elimination from postseason contention.
With the setback, CF (20-31-1, 9-12 Mid-Florida Conference) is a loss or St. Johns River victory away from being mathematically eliminated from the postseason race. The top two MFC finishers advance to the state tournament.
Bradley Goodson and Nick Radomski had back-to-back home runs to lead a strong Patriot effort at the plate.
The Patriots complete the 2011 spring season with a three-game week, starting Monday at FSC-Jacksonville. CF hosts Santa Fe on Wednesday and St. Johns River on Friday, each at 3 p.m. at Goodlett Field.
