On March 28th, the SPC Titans baseball team took on State College of Florida at 1pm. It was a sunny and breezy afternoon at the Joe DiMaggio Complex in Clearwater. The game slowly picked up when Titans #15, Trey Amburgery, scored a home-run at the bottom of the first inning.
During the second inning State College was up two points, making the score 2-1 with State College in the lead. Unfortunately, there were a lot of errors in the third inning that allowed runners to get on base and score. There was a sacrificed fly ball by State College #56 that brought in a run at the end of the fourth inning. The fourth inning was brutal because SPC did not score at all.
The top of the sixth inning was literally completed in four minutes. At the bottom of the sixth inning Titan #27, Alan Archer’s base hit drove in player #16, Michael Mann, and brought the score 6-3 with State College in the lead. The crowd was uneasy of whether or not the Titans would make a comeback with only three innings left in the game. “It’s a great day for baseball, but I’m concerned; usually the Titans have a tendency to come back from games,” said Stacey Cole, fan of the Titans.
Many remarked on State College’s strong pitching and how the Titans could not adapt. The remainder of the innings ran slow and the game came to a defeat for the Titans. The final score at the end of the ninth inning was 6-3 in favor of State College of Florida.
