Trinity wins again

The Trinity College Bantams survived a late scare to improve to 44-0 on the season with an 8-5 victory over Johns Hopkins. With the win, Trinity is now the only undefeated team left at the D3 College World Series. Adrian, Wisconsin-Whitewater, and Hopkins sit at 2-1 entering day 4 of the double-elimination tournament.

Navigators 1B Kent Graham had another good day for Trinity, going 1-for-4 with an RBI triple in the bottom of the 7th, which at the time gave Trinity a 6-2 lead.

That run would prove to be very important, as Hopkins put together a 3-run 8th inning against Bantams starter Chandler Bernard to trim the lead to one. Michael Regan came out of the pen to get the last out of the 8th, maintaining Trinity's 6-5 advantage.

In the bottom of the 8th, the Bantams put the game away, scoring two insurance runs to make it 8-5.

Holyoke Sox catcher Sean Killeen had a big game. He reached base 3 times, hitting 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI, and 2 runs scored.

Trinity will get to sit back and relax tomorrow while three 2-1 teams, Wisconsin-Whitewater, Adrian, and Hopkins, will battle it out for the right to play the Bantams for the title on Tuesday.
