Game Notes - February 17
 

Trinity Baseball @ Mary Hardin-Baylor

 

The Tiger baseball team finished the week with a 1-2 overall record, but did split a weekend series with Austin College to tie for the early lead in the SCAC West Division.

Trinity lost a 7-3 game at Texas Lutheran University on Tuesday, then outlasted Austin College with a 9-8 win in 11 innings on Saturday afternoon.  Austin College came back to split the weekend series with a 14-8 win on Sunday.

Third baseman Kevin Jackson hit a walkoff homer with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift the Tigers to Saturday’s win.  Jackson was 4-6 with two runs and four RBI in the game, hitting his first collegiate home run.

On Sunday, shortstop Stosh Hoover was a bright spot in a lopsided loss for the Tigers.  Hoover doubled his career total with two home runs in Sunday’s game, collecting a career-high six RBI in the process.  Hoover was 4-5 with three runs and six RBI, hitting a triple to go with his two home runs.

Hoover now stands just three runs from becoming the 18th player in Trinity history to score 100 times in a career.  He is also tied for sixth in school history in career triples.

Jordan Pennington collected his 100th career hit over the weekend, while Hoover also reached the milestone with his four-hit performance on Sunday.  Hoover’s 100th career hit was his first homer of the day.  Evan Jones, who is tied with Pennington for the team lead in batting average, is just one hit away from reaching the same milestone.

After just two home games, Trinity will be back on the road this week, taking on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor on Tuesday afternoon.  After that, the Tigers will play a three-game series at Sul Ross State University from Friday to Sunday.  Trinity returns home the following weekend for a two-game SCAC series against Hendrix College.
