San Antonio – Trinity's seventh-ranked baseball team earned a 4-2 road win over Our Lady of the Lake (TX) University on Tuesday night.
Trinity got on the board with a run in the top of the first, but the Tigers missed a chance for a big inning after leaving the bases loaded.
Brendan Meyer took full advantage of the lead by striking out eight batters in the first four innings, including striking out the side in both the second and fourth.
Our Lady of the Lake did manage to sneak across an unearned run in the third, though, and Trinity was clinging to a 2-1 lead after four.
The Saints chased Meyer from the game after an error and a single to start the seventh, scoring their second run of the game with an RBI groundout to first base.
A single and a one-out walk in the ninth put the tying run aboard, but Nix came in to close the game with two strikeouts for a Tiger victory.
Trinity upped its season record to 9-1, while Our Lady of the Lake fell to 8-14 with the loss.
Brendan Meyer (3-0) struck out a Trinity season-high 12 batters in just 6.0 innings of work, allowing just two unearned runs on four hits.
Nix came into the game in the bottom of the ninth with two runners on base, striking out the game's final two batters to earn his first save of the season.
John Tucker and Blake Frampton both picked up a triple to go with two hits in the win, driving in three of Trinity's four runs scored. Tucker went 2-4 with two RBI, while Frampton was 2-5 with one RBI of his own.
The Tigers will have the weekend off, then will host the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (TX) on Tuesday, March 13, at 7:00 p.m.
