LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) -The Columbia baseball team reached 12-2 on the season with a Friday night win over Santa Fe in Lake City. The victory is the fifth in a row for the Tigers. The Raiders dropped to 7-4 with their third straight loss.

Santa Fe took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth when Nate Robertson reached on a fielder’s choice with the bases loaded, scoring Deacon Northway.

The game changed on one swing of the bat in the bottom of the fourth, when Camdon Frier unloaded a grand slam to left center field. Frier, a Florida State football commit, turned a 1-0 deficit into a 4-1 Columbia lead. Later in the inning, Branson Mann delivered an RBI single to cap a five-run inning.

Columbia looks to make it six in a row on Tuesday at home versus 8-3 Union County. Santa Fe looks to bounce back Tuesday at Bartram Trail.
