Tigers Lose Third Straight Game to Open 2009

Tyler, Texas - Trinity's baseball team lost its third straight game to open the 2009 season, as the University of Texas-Tyler won a 10-2 game on Sunday afternoon.

Trinity (0-3) fell behind after a four-run third inning by the home team, and trailed 7-0 before getting on the scoreboard in the top of the seventh.  The Tigers had just six hits in the game, and after breaking up the shutout in the seventh, Trinity gave up three more runs in the bottom of the inning that put the game away for good.

Ben Klimesh (0-1) gave up five runs on four hits in the first four innings, but did strike out five batters in his collegiate debut.  Michael Panozzo allowed five runs on five hits in the next two innings, though only two of those runs were earned.  Britton Horn didn't allow a hit in the final inning for the Tigers.

Jordan Pennington was 2-4 with one RBI in the game, and was the only Trinity player with more than one hit.  Kevin Jackson went 1-3 with one RBI, while Kyle Felix and Steven Ramos scored for the Tigers.

Trinity continues its road trip to start off the year on Tuesday at Texas Lutheran University.  The Tigers make their home and SCAC debut on February 14 against Austin College.
