Rams rally by Trinity

Published 12:00 am Monday, March 14, 2005

NATCHEZ &045; Something indeed clicked with the WCCA Rams in the late innings.

Only head coach Ray Olive doesn’t know what it is.

He has a good idea of how his club rallied for seven runs in its final two at-bats to take a 9-6 win over Trinity Episcopal Wednesday. His club may be starting to find itself, something it had to do after falling behind by four runs heading into the sixth inning against the Saints.

&uot;To be honest, I really can’t tell you,&uot; Olive said. &uot;We’re a team right now that’s still trying to find our identity and find leadership. They’re struggling with that a little bit. We’ve got to find ourselves, and hopefully in that sixth and seventh innings that was something to build on.&uot;

The Rams (4-1) got things rolling at the plate in the sixth inning after trailing 6-2 and scored three runs to cut the deficit to one. Collin Dor singled in Taylor Fontenot, Spike Deville scored on a ground out and Dor came around on a passed ball.

In the seventh Jack Maxwell doubled in Eli Ashley to tie it up, Taylor Fontenot doubled in Maxwell and scored on a Dor single and Blake Fontenot doubled in Dor for the 9-6 lead.

Dor closed it out on the mound after entering the game in the third. He went five innings while allowing one hit, walking one and striking out six.

The Saints had better success against Deville in the early innings. The Rams had some errors behind him, and the Saints loaded the bases in the first inning before Kyle Ketchings unloaded on one for a grand slam over the fence in left.

&uot;We came out and scored right off the bat, but hand it to Trinity,&uot; Olive said. &uot;Coach (Matt) Mason is doing a great job. They took it to us in the early going. It was looking pretty bad for us.&uot;
