Raiders run roughshod

Northwest Florida shuts out defending JUCO champs

Five runs in the first inning, five more in the sixth.
With those two big innings Monday afternoon, Northwest Florida State College quickly put away the defending Alpine Bank Junior College World Series champion, Iowa Western Community College, 10-0 in a game shortened to six innings by the run rule.
The Raiders dismantled the Reivers’ pitching staff, chasing starter Mitch McIntyre after one inning and forcing Iowa Western to use four relievers.
In the top of the first inning, the 10-0 outcome seemed unlikely as Raiders pitcher Brian Browning loaded the bases with one out. The base traffic had no effect on Browning, though, as he got the next two batters to pop up to end the inning.
