Irving, Texas – Trinity's softball team opened up a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference weekend series by sweeping Friday's doubleheader at the University of Dallas (TX).
The Tigers won 2-1 in the opening game, then rallied late to steal a 3-2 win in the second game of the doubleheader.
Dallas opened the scoring with an unearned run in the bottom of the first inning, but Trinity threw out the potential second run at the plate to keep it a 1-0 game.
The Tigers strung three hits together in the second inning, tying the game on Marisa Trevino's single through the left side of the infield.
Rebecca Berreth drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the top of the sixth inning, which turned out to be the game-winner.
Game two was a scoreless tie over the first three innings, then Dallas plated two runs in the fourth to strike the first blow.
Trevino and Emily Reed both drove in runs in the next half-inning to tie the game 2-2 in the fifth, then added another run on three hits in the sixth to take the lead. Devon Potter's single to right field would prove to be the game-winner.
The wins snapped a five-game losing streak for Trinity, which improved to 13-13 overall and 6-8 in SCAC play. Dallas falls to 5-15 overall and remains winless in conference play at 0-6.
Devon Potter went 2-4 in both games of today's doubleheader, scoring a run and driving in the game-winning RBI in the second game.
Allie Holbrook (6-6) earned the complete-game victory in the first game, allowing one unearned run on five hits. Adrienne Edwards (5-6) also pitched a complete game to earn the game two win, yielding two runs on six hits. Both pitchers recorded four strikeouts in each game.
The Tigers and Crusaders will face off for another doubleheader on Saturday with game one beginning at noon.
