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

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.

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
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
