Trinity Holds off Schreiner for Fourth Straight Win

Kerrville, Texas - The Tiger baseball team jumped out early, but then had to hold off a scrappy Schreiner University to take a 7-6 road win on Tuesday afternoon.

Trinity (5-6) took a 4-0 lead after a pair of runs in both the first and third innings.  After Schreiner finally got on the board in the bottom of the third, the Tigers answered with three more runs to take control of the game.

That control was relinquished in the fifth, though, as Schreiner scored four runs to cut the lead to just two.  In the sixth, the home team plated another run to make it 7-6 with three innings to play.

Clint Robertson struck out five through four innings of work, and Mike Hunter (1-0) came on in the middle innings to earn the win.  Hunter yielded just one run on three hits through 2.1 innings, striking out three batters.  Evan Bronson came on to earn his first save of the year, pitching the final two innings without allowing a hit.

Schreiner brought the winning run to the plate in the ninth, but Bronson and the Trinity defense shut the door with its second double play of the game.

Kyle Felix was 3-5 with two RBI to lead the Tiger offense, while Evan Jones also drove in a pair of runs and scored another.

Stosh Hoover continued his red-hot offensive streak.  Hoover was 1-2 with three runs scored, drawing three walks and tying a school record with four stolen bases.

Trinity will return home this weekend to host Hendrix College in a pair of Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference games on Saturday and Sunday.
