FERRIDAY — Kyle Ketchings had nothing but good things to say about his team despite a 12-2 loss to Brookhaven Academy Tuesday in a MAIS District 5-AA game.

The Trinity Episcopal Day School head baseball coach said his team simply got beat despite playing a quality game.

“Our guys played their hearts out,” Ketchings said. “They played a quality opponent. I have nothing but respect (for Brookhaven). We didn’t play a bad game, they just put the ball in play and hit around the field. There wasn’t much we could do.”

Trinity starter Quinton Logan lasted five innings and was touched for seven runs, only four of which were earned. He also had seven strikeouts and gave up four hits and four walks.

“Quinton is one of those players that will be very special in a couple of years,” Ketchings said of his starter. “I thought he did well. He looked good tonight, and has always looked good each time he’s pitched. He gave up a couple of untimely walks, but he’s a great pitcher, and we’re happy to have him on the team.”

Trinity fell behind 2-0 after one inning but cut Brookhaven’s lead 2-1 in the bottom of the second. After Logan doubled, Garrett Vinson hit a two-out single that scored Logan from second.

But Brookhaven added three more runs in the third inning and another run in the fourth. Trinity scored it’s only other run in the bottom of the fifth after Sky Logan singled and Quinton walked with two outs. Jared Hedrick then singled in Sky from second.

Sky came in to pitch in the top of the sixth, and Brookhaven scored five more runs to make it 12-2. Trinity was unable to score in the bottom half of the frame, and the game was called due to the 10-runs-after-five mercy rule.

Vinson and Quinton both had doubles, and Brookhaven’s Gage Posey had a two-run home run in the top of the sixth. Vinson was 2-for-3, while Brookhaven’s Tanner Parvin went 2-for-3 with a double.

The Saints committed four errors early in the game, but Ketchings said that wasn’t the reason his team lost.

“I don’t think that’s actually what killed us,” Ketchings said. “They just hit the ball well. I know we’ve had errors in the past (that hurt us), but we’ve got guys that haven’t played baseball in a while, so that’s to be expected.”

Trinity (1-10, 0-4) will host Riverfield Academy Thursday.
