TRINITY — Hot bats gave the Coldspring-Oakhurst Trojans a win over the Trinity Tigers on Friday.
Tiger head coach Chad Kinney said senior Sam Allen gave up a total of 4 earned runs and 1 RBI at the plate, and junior Cole Caldwell went 2-for-2 with a triple and a run scored. Freshmen Remi Lassman and Cole Hortman each went 1-for-2 with a double, and freshman David McKendree walked twice.
Trinity managed to put up a few hits, but couldn’t string together enough to counter Coldspring-Oakhurst.
Kinney said that due to having players out, the next game — Onalaska on Thursday — they will be starting five or six freshmen.
Trojan Head Coach Austin Riddell said it was a great overall team win.
Easton Dean, who also carried pitching duties, went 4-for-5 and hit for the cycle, including his first high school-career home run. He also put up three strikeouts while allowing only two hits.
Riddell said this week is going to be a tough test, as they were to play New Waverly on Tuesday at home, and then travel to Anderson-Shiro on Thursday.
“This will be a great measuring tool to see where we truly stand in our district and we are excited for the opportunity,” he said.
