The State College of Florida baseball team must deal with life in the losers bracket following its first-round game in the FCSAA state tournament at Lakelands Joker Marchant Stadium.
The Manatees fell 6-3 to Seminole State College of Florida.
SCF rallied with the bases loaded in the eighth and ninth innings, but couldnt generate the key base hit to open the floodgates.
Consequently, the Manatees will face the loser of Fridays late game between Miami-Dade and Chipola on Saturday. That game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start.
LSU-bound Conner Hale led the clubs offense with a 3-for-5 performance.
SCFs No. 1 pitcher, Robby Kalaf, took the loss after he allowed five earned runs off 10 hits in seven innings.
