Trinity Gives up Huge Inning to Spark UMHB to Victory

Belton, Texas - Trinity's baseball team suffered its worst loss of the season after giving up 11 runs in one inning of a 16-5 loss at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor on Tuesday afternoon.

Trinity (1-6) had just seven hits in the game, giving up 17 hits and six unearned runs on two errors.

The Tigers took an early 2-1 lead on a two-run homer by DH Nick Pappas, but Mary Hardin-Baylor hammered out eight hits in the third inning to score 11 runs and take command of the game for good.

Trinity scored a run in the sixth and a pair of runs in the eighth, but UMHB scored four more runs in the same span for the final score.

Eric Binder (0-2) took the loss for Trinity, giving up five runs in two innings pitched.  Mike Hunter struck out all four batters he faced in the game, finishing off the seventh and eighth innings.

Pappas finished 1-3 with two RBI and a run scored, while Jeff Claydon was 2-3 with one run and one RBI.

Trinity travels to Alpine, Texas this weekend, taking on Sul Ross State University.  The Tigers will play at Schreiner University next Tuesday afternoon in Seguin, Texas.
