For the record
Senior Scott Sexton was looking to have more of an impact on the mound this season, and he has definitely done that. Sexton had a streak of five straight saved games for the Bucs, starting with his first save against St. Thomas in a 7-5 Buccaneer win. The five straight saves are a school and conference record.
Sexton’s next save came in another close game against Saint Leo, where he pitched one inning and struck out two to clinch a 6-4 win over of the Lions. Sexton followed that save by getting two more against the Lions, pitching a total of two innings in both games, with two strikeouts in the second game that got the Bucs their 8-7 win and a sweep over Saint Leo.
Sexton’s fifth and final save in his streak came against the Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish. Sexton allowed only one hit in his one inning pitched, and forced a double-play that ended the game in an 8-7 win for the Bucs.
