In the midst of back-to-back games with Coppell, the Trinity baseball team has found itself in a battle for the District 7-6A title with just a few games remaining.
The Trojans hosted Coppell on April 14 before traveling on the road for their match-up Friday night. However, because of last weekend’s inclement weather, that game was pushed to Saturday, where they only played a few innings before postponing the bulk of the game to Monday night at 6 p.m. See www.dfwvarsity.com for results.
The teams are set to resume play on Monday with no score and two outs in the top half of the third inning.
In the first of two, Coppell took down the Trojans 3-0 despite Mark Geisel's seven strikeouts in five innings. He allowed two runs on four hits.
Jensen Elliott went the distance for the Cowboys by allowing just three hits, including from Trinity's Chase Averitt and Wes Engle.
The Cowboys hit two home runs and got runs in the fourth, sixth and seventh innings and now hold down the top spot in the district.
Coppell moved to 14-3 and 6-1 while Trinity fell to 15-3 and 7-2, but the Trojans have a chance to get back on top of the district standings if they can win Monday's rematch.
Both are assured a playoff spot, with the Cowboys having games with Colleyville Heritage and Haltom left. The Trojans will have one final two-game district series with Richland and a non-district game May 2 also scheduled.
