Tiger Baseball Defeats Cardinal Stritch Monday Night

San Antonio - Trinity's baseball team opened up a full week of action with a 13-3 win over Cardinal Stritch University on Monday night.

The Tigers earned their seventh consecutive victory overall, and won by 10 or more runs for the second straight game.  The game started off with a bang, as the two teams combined to score six runs in the first full inning.

Trinity answered a two-run first by Cardinal Stritch with four runs in the bottom of the inning, and the Tigers never looked back.  Trinity added two more runs in the third, then another four-spot in the fourth.  In the seventh, the Tigers scored three more runs to end their scoring, but Cardinal Stritch was able to grab one more run in the ninth.

Zack Speer (2-0) allowed two runs on five hits through five innings, striking out eight batters. He finished his night by not allowing a hit over his final three innings, settling in nicely after a rough start.  Teddy Turner, Franklin Bay, and Kyle Bogese allowed just two hits over the final four innings, striking out six batters.

Pat Hirschberg continued his hot hitting with a 3-3 performance in tonight's game, scoring two runs and collecting five RBI.  He hit his sixth home run of the season, as well as his sixth double among his three hits.

Jeremy Wolf was 2-3 with a run and two RBI, while Austin Singer and Connor Moore also picked up two hits each.  Singer scored two runs for the Tigers, as did Will Donnan.  Donnan was 1-1 with a walk before leaving the game.

Trinity will be back in action on Thursday night, hosting DeSales University at 7:00 p.m.  The Tigers will then hit the road for three-game conference series against Centenary College.
