Tiger Offense Continues to Shine in Win Over Concordia

Round Rock, Texas - Trinity's baseball team continued its offensive showcase with a 14-4 win over Concordia (TX) University on Tuesday afternoon.

Trinity (7-7) played the game at Dell Diamond, which is the home of the Round Rock Express - a Minor League Baseball team.

Concordia took the initial lead in the game by scoring a pair of runs in the second inning, but Trinity quickly tied the game with two runs in the third.  After Concordia slipped in another run in the fourth, the Tiger bats were finally awakened in the sixth.

Trinity scored six runs in the sixth, followed by three runs each in the seventh and eighth innings to pull ahead of Concordia.

Stosh Hoover and Evan Jones led Trinity with three hits each in the game, and the team hammered out 14 hits total.  Hoover was 3-5 with three runs and three RBI, while Jones was 3-5 with two runs and two RBI in the game.

For the second straight game, Jordan Pennington kept his hitting streak alive on his final at-bat of the day, cracking a three-run homer in the eighth inning to extend his streak to 21 games.  Pennington was 1-4 with two runs and three RBI for the Tigers.

Kevin Jackson was 2-6 with two runs and two RBI, while Nick Pappas scored three times.  Jeff Claydon was 2-4 with one run and one RBI in the game.

Noah Solomon (1-0) earned the win for Trinity, pitching seven full innings in relief.  Solomon gave up just two runs on six hits through the final seven innings, striking out four and allowing just one walk.

Trinity will continue a full week of action with a Thursday night game at home against DeSales University.  The Tigers will then open up a two-game SCAC series at Southwestern on Saturday, followed by the series finale on Sunday afternoon.
