San Antonio – The top-ranked Tiger baseball team earned a 7-2 victory over NAIA school Our Lady of the Lake (TX) University on Monday night.
The first half of the game was a scoreless tie, as Trinity left six runners on base over the first four innings, and Our Lady of the Lake had a double play and caught two runners stealing during that span.
The Tigers finally scraped a run across on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Jake Martin with one out in the fifth, but Trinity left two more runners on base to miss out another chance for a big inning.
A two-run homer from Martin and an RBI double from Pecoraro doubled Trinity's lead to 6-0 in the seventh, then Blake Frampton drove home another insurance run in the eighth.
Our Lady of the Lake picked up a pair of runs to break up the shutout in the top of the ninth, but Trinity held on for the win.
Trinity improves to 32-4 this season after securing its fourth consecutive victory, which is also the second win this year against OLLU. The Saints fell to 21-27 on the year.
Mark Tindall tossed six shutout innings before being relieved in the top of the seventh. Tindall allowed just three hits and struck out six batters.
Jake Martin belted his fifth home run of the season, finishing 1-3 with three RBI and a run scored in the game.
Trinity will finish off its regular season home schedule by hosting McMurry (TX) University at 5:00 p.m.
