TRINITY — Hot bats gave the Coldspring-Oakhurst Trojans a commanding win over the Trinity Tigers on Friday.
Trojan Head Coach Austin Riddell said it was a great overall team win, defeating the Tigers 18-1 in five innings.
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.
Trinity managed to put up a few hits, but couldn’t string together enough to counter Coldspring-Oakhurst.
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.
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.
Kinney said that due to having players out, the next game — Onalaska on Thursday — they will be starting five or six freshmen.
