Paige's grand slam  leads to 13-3 win over Central Florida

Florida State College at Jacksonville faced the Patriots of Central Florida in game two of the series. The BlueWave wasted no time getting on the board when Logan Nugent started things off on a single on a 1-2 count, scoring the first run for FSCJ. BlueWave's Josh Paige then broke the game open on a grand slam pitch that crossed four over the plate to give FSCJ an early 5-0 lead over CF. The second inning racked up two a piece for each team, but FSCJ answered back picking up another run off Brandon Cruz's solo homer run in the third and then expanded the lead with an additional four runs crossing the plate in the fourth. Central Florida added another run in the fifth to match FSCJ's Trey Spratling-Williams long ball that cleared the fence, but it wasn't enough as the BlueWave closed out the game in five with a 13-3 victory. 

Tyler Naumann picked up the win for the BlueWave program surrendering three runs on seven hits over five innings, striking out three. FSCJ bats out in work launching three home runs on the day. Trey Spratling-Williams had a dinger in the fifth inning. Brandon Cruz put one out in the third inning. Paige went deep in the first inning. The BlueWave totaled 13 hits in the game with Alex Luscombe, AJ Orrico, and Nugent each racking up multiple hits.
