Trinity (Texas) baseball rallies in eighth to beat Dallas

SAN ANTONIO -- Top-ranked Trinity (Texas) staged an eighth-inning rally to edge Dallas 5-4 in a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference game on Sunday afternoon.

Trinity (21-2, 8-1 SCAC) won the weekend series 2-1, taking Saturday’s opening game 8-2, but losing the second in a 9-8, 10-inning thriller. Dallas now stands at 12-14 and 2-7 in conference play.

The Tigers took a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but the Crusaders took advantage of three Tiger errors in the second inning to produce three runs and take a 3-2 lead. Dallas added an insurance run in the seventh to make it 4-2, setting up the Tiger rally.

Trinity began with a run in the bottom of the seventh to cut the lead in half, then pulled in front for the first time since the opening frame with a two-run eighth. Pinch-hitter Trent Rape cracked a run-scoring single to score Pat Hirschberg, then two batters later, Connor Moore drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly to center. 

Kevin Flores came on in relief in the second inning, pitching a total of 7.1 innings, and giving up one unearned run on four hits. He also struck out four batters without yielding a walk.

Hirschberg hit 2-3 at the plate, and stole two bases, while Jeremy Wolf also went 2-3 in the match-up. Wolf also drew a walk in the eighth to set up the winning run, which was scored by pinch-runner Brody Fehmel.
