"There's nothing to really be disappointed about. It was a good old fashioned pitchers' duel. They got a clutch hit here or there and we couldn't string them together and they win the ball game." - Head Coach Sean O'Connor

Saint Leo continues its three-game series with Florida Tech tomorrow right back here at Thomas B. Southard Stadium. First pitch of the doubleheader will be at 1:00 p.m. with the second game coming approximately a half hour after the conclusion of game one.
