Julian Infante’s hair burned through the wind as he rounded third base and hit home plate Saturday in the sixth inning of Westminster Christian’s 10-2 win at Florida Christian.

Infante hit what looked like a single, then glanced up and pressed turbo, after seeing the baseball slip under the fielder’s glove in left field. Infante would touch them all to cap off his 3-for-4, five RBI night.

“It was a great feeling,” said Infante, who homered in the first inning, “I was rounding first and I saw it under the glove and said, ‘I’m taking off.’ ”

The Warriors (8-2-1) took off behind lanky lefty Jon Jon Gonzalez. The starter limited the Patriots (6-3) to two unearned runs and had six strikeouts in five innings of work. Michael Campos took the loss for the Patriots.

“Whenever you can play a great team like Florida Christian, you have to score,” Warriors coach Emil Castellanos said “They have great guys on the mound and they are tough to beat.”

The Warriors put up five runs in the first inning to insure its starter. Jake Zarrella was 2-for-3 with an RBI in the win. Gonzalez was 3-for-3, with an RBI, at the plate.

“The first inning got away from us,” Patriots coach Chris Brigman said. “Hats off to them. They put the ball in play and had the big home run. We battled but it just got away from us.”
