The Trojans would strike out eleven times in the contest but showed their coach signs of improvement.

“We have some inexperience but we are going to get better everyday,” head coach Robin Snyder said. “Every game we work to get better. We have to work to keep innings going and get runners home.”

Charles Henderson pressured Trinity in the sixth when Outlaw and Hartley reached to start the frame. The Trojans would fail to score however after a strong defensive showing by the visitors.

Madison Mehaffey, who was 2-for-3 on the night, singled and scored in the seventh but that was all the damage the Trojans could inflict.

Hartley finished 2-for-3 at the plate and pitched the full seven innings.

Charles Henderson will take on Enterprise on the road on Thursday. Game time is set for 6:30p.m.
