Trinity 10, Lutheran West 6

Lutheran West kicked one away last night, falling to Trinity in the first round of the Sectional Tournament. The Longhorns led 4-0 after the first inning but couldn’t hold the lead thanks to strong hitting by Trinity and a couple of costly errors. The two errors led to five unearned runs—runs that LW could ill-afford to give away to an already potent Trinity offense.
The game started well enough with LW jumping all over Trinity’s starter for four runs on four hits in the first frame.   Junior CJ Griffin knocked in senior Ricky Downer with the first run, and senior Andrew Samoson’s RBI single brought home sophomore Colin McCartney with run number two. Senior Jake Dersi hit a sacrifice fly to right to plate Griffin and junior Tyler Cerny brought home junior Eric Lewis with a two-out RBI double to left to bring the score to 4-0.
The lead would not last long as LW quickly gave most of it back in the bottom of the first. The leadoff batter got the inning rolling when he reached on an error on Griffin at short. Two flyouts and three doubles later, Trinity had scored three unearned runs.
In the fourth it was more of the same. With two out and runners on second and third, sophomore hard-luck starter Aaron Geye (L, 3-2) coaxed a routine ground ball to short that Griffin promptly air-mailed over sophomore Eric Szczepinski’s head at first. Those runs put Trinity up 6-5. 
Trinity put up three insurance runs in the fifth to put the game away.
