Hathcock’s two HRs help Raiders stay undefeated at JUCO

Mack Hathcock cleaned up as the leadoff hitter.
The Northwest Florida State College center fielder hit two home runs and drove in three runs Wednesday night to lead the Raiders to a 10-7 win over Walters State (Tennessee) Community College at Suplizio Field.
The win leaves the Raiders as the only undefeated team remaining in the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series.
“That was a heck of a baseball game on both sides. It was a total team effort and that was all the way around,” Northwest Florida State coach Doug Martin said. “We had so much respect for their offense and what they have been able to do throughout the year and in this tournament so far. We knew we were going to have to score, and our guys were up for that offensively.”
