Tigers Rally to Sweep Weekend Series at Sul Ross

Alpine, Texas - After running away with the first two games of the weekend series, Trinity's baseball team had to rally from an early deficit to earn a 10-7 win over Sul Ross State University on Sunday afternoon.

Trinity (4-6) fell behind after Sul Ross scored a pair of runs in the first inning, and after pulling ahead with a three-run fourth, Sul Ross tied the game in the bottom of the inning.

The Tigers reclaimed the lead with a run in the fifth, then scored three runs in both the seventh and eighth to pull ahead 10-4.  Sul Ross scored three more in the eighth - following its run in the seventh - to cut the lead in half, but the Tigers were too much in the end.

Weston Haaf (1-0) earned the win, going 3.2 innings and giving up just one earned run - four runs total - on five hits.  Eric Binder started the game, allowing just three runs on four hits in the first four innings, but just one of those runs were earned. 

In his first action of the young season, Mike Hunter struck out the final four batters in the game to close the door on any potential comeback by Sul Ross.

Stosh Hoover had two hits and drove in three runs to lead the offense, while Jeff Claydon was 2-5 with two runs scored.  Kyle Felix and Dylan Early drove in two runs each in the game, both hitting doubles for the Tigers.  Steven Ramos had two runs and two RBI.

Trinity will travel to Schreiner University on Tuesday afternoon for another non-conference game, then the team returns home for a two-game SCAC series against Hendrix College on Saturday and Sunday.
