The St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders came out swinging against the Plantation Colonels in an 8A District 14 matchup at Ed Waters Field on Tuesday night. The Raiders went around the lineup in the first inning that started a strong momentum that led to a lopsided victory over the Colonels.

St. Thomas improves to 3-2 overall, but also starts at the front of the district in the first action played in 8A-14 this season. It was a strong offensive game combined with strength on the mound that contributed to the win.

“When you have 23 guys on a team its hard to get everybody in all the time so when you get a chance and you get a lead early, you get a chance to get other kids in,” St. Thomas manager Troy Cameron said. “That’s their opportunity to show that, ‘hey I’m ready for my next opportunity’. So they try to take advantage of it. They know that opportunities are tough to come by. When you’re able to get other guys in the game, that’s their opportunity to show that they’re ready to play at this level., Every day they get a chance to compete in practice but of course they want to do it against another team.”

The Raiders did take advantage, as 21 players saw the field with a combined 18 hits. The first inning started with senior center fielder Cameron Krzeminski walking and then stealing two bases back to back that got everyone excited and ready to play.

“We wanted to put up as many runs as we could,” Krzeminski said. “We just wanted to keep hitting the ball. Everyone wanted to hit today; everyone wanted to get up there and get as many at bats as they could and increase their stats.”

Freshman Isaiah Hood made his debut in center field in the second inning, finishing the night with two hits.

“I was kind of nervous at first. I knew he was going to throw a fastball. I was happy I got my first hit,” said Hood.

The Colonels (0-2) never gave up in this district matchup. They kept their heads in the game and got a few hits throughout the game.

“It’s just developmental right now,” Plantation manager Manny Aguilar said. “Obviously we have a lot of seniors, its just a matter of us working our freshmen and our sophomores so we continue with the success of this program. It’s just a matter of pitching coming along. There’s bright sides; its just a matter of us getting better as one and its our second game of the season so there’s no reason why we’re feeling deflated. We’re putting everything on the table right now and just going after everybody. It’s just a matter of us getting more experience.”
