Trinity comeback falls short

NATCHEZ — Trinity head softball coach Chris Hutchins was at least glad his team didn’t give up Tuesday evening.

Despite being down 10-0 and playing in hot temperatures, the Lady Saints fought back against Central Private to make the game interesting.

Unfortunately for the Lady Saints, they just couldn’t put enough runs on the board to dig themselves out of the massive hole they put themselves in to start the game. They eventually lost 10-5, falling to 0-3 on the season.

“After the second inning, I thought we played a much better game. Maybe we had some home opener jitters,” Hutchins said.

“I was somewhat discouraged that we put ourselves in a hole down 10-0, but I was encouraged we didn’t quit and made a game of it, especially being out in this heat.”

Central Private scored three runs in the first inning, and added five in the second inning. It scored two more runs in the third inning before Trinity finally got on board in the bottom of the third.

The Lady Saints’ first run came after catcher Tali Beard scored from third on a passed ball. Katie Steele followed up with an RBI triple that scored Sarah Bryan and Randa Morace.

Julia Stevens then singled in Steele, and after advanced to third, scored herself on a passed ball.

Neither team scored any runs in the fourth inning.

“I think the second time through the lineup they adjusted to where they were able to get some balls in play and score some runs,” Hutchins said.

Steele was the starter for Trinity Tuesday, and took the loss. Despite the rough outing, Hutchins said he was happy with how she improved as the game went on.

“She regrouped after a tough start and finally pitched like the Katie Steele we all know,” he said.

Stevens finished the game 2-for-2. No other Trinity players had multiple hits.
