#1 Trinity Suffers Second Straight Loss on Monday Night

Georgetown, Texas – The #1 Trinity Tigers was edged 8-7 in a non-conference game at Southwestern (TX) University on Monday night.

 

GAME SUMMARY

Despite out-hitting Southwestern 17-8, Trinity was able to muster just seven runs and left a total of 17 runners on base in the game.

The Tigers started the scoring with two runs on three hits in the second inning, but Southwestern answered immediately with a three-run home run to take a 3-2 lead early in the game.

The Pirates added another run in the third to take a two-run advantage, but Trinity tied the game at 4-4 with a three-hit fifth inning.

Southwestern pulled back in front immediately, scoring three runs over the next two innings to take a 7-4 lead after six complete.

Trinity refused to go quietly, though, hammering out five hits in the top of the seventh to score three runs and tie the game 7-7.

In the bottom of the eighth, the Tigers turned a double play to erase a leadoff walk issued to Southwestern, but the Pirates drew another walk to keep the inning alive. 

That walk was followed by a run-scoring double that put Southwestern in front once again at 8-7, and Trinity was retired in order in the ninth to end the game.
