Four Santa Fe pitchers combined for a 3-hit shutout to earn a 2-0 win over Tallahassee Community College in the capital city Monday evening.

Michael Paul (1-0) earned the win, allowing just two hits and one walk over the first five innings while striking out seven. Tyler Jones followed Paul and pitched two innings, allowing one hit and one walk with three strikeouts.

Austin Bass pitched the eighth giving up a walk while fanning two and Emanuel Fernandez earned his first save of the year when he set down the Eagles in order recording one strikeout in the ninth.

"Our pitchers did a great job of pounding the strike zone and we played errorless ball," said SF Head Coach Johnny Wiggs. "Anytime you do those things you give yourself a good chance to win."

SF pitchers have allowed just four earned runs over their first four games.

The Saints (4-0) scored all the runs they would need in the fifth when Parker Biederer collected a one-out single and stole second. One out later Kyler Marquis drew a base-on-balls and Brock Edge followed with an RBI single brining home Biederer and moving Marquis to third.

The Saints then pulled off a double steal with Edge taking second and Marquis stealing home.

Jonathan Logsdon and Garrett Mathes each had two hits in the game for the Saints.

The Saints will host Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College for a 3 pm game on Wednesday.
