SCF leads Orioles through five innings

The State College of Florida Manatees lead the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 after five innings.

However, the Orioles are using their own pitchers against their hitters.

They've also used catcher Ronny Paulino in multiple spots in SCF's batting order, and the fifth also featured starter Tsuyoshi Wada recording five outs in what looked like an effort to stretch his pitch count out.

The Manatees plated two runs in the fourth inning after three hits, a groundout and wild pitch.

SCF isn't using any pitchers after winning a 12-inning Suncoast Conference game last night against Polk State, having another conference game on Wednesday and with six players injured.
