A-9 baseball: Seffner Christian's title streak ends

Seffner Christian's streak of three straight district titles came to an end Thursday with a 12-5 loss to Lakeland Sonrise Christian in the Class A-9 title game.

Sonrise Christian rallied with a six-run second inning to break a 2-2 tie after one inning.

"We had a strong start but it got away from us," Seffner coach Johnny Saunders said. "A lot of the hits were bloop singles and there's not a lot you can do about that. We're a young team, so I kind of knew it would be a rebuilding year."

Garrett Saunders had the only extra-base hit for the Crusaders (6-14).

Seffner Christian, a team that starts four freshmen and an eighth-grader, faces Cambridge in the first round of the Class A tournament Tuesday.
