SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The Centenary softball team missed opportunities and couldn’t keep Trinity from getting timely hits Saturday afternoon, falling 7-0 and 2-0. The Ladies have dropped their last four and are now 4-28 overall and 3-7 in conference play.

Trinity (21-12, 9-0 SCAC) remains undefeated in conference play and snaps a two game slide that came from two losses earlier this week in non-conference action.

Lindsey Sconce (0-10) was bested in game two, but still delivered a quality outing. The Graham, Texas native went 6.0 innings and allowed two runs off of eight hits. She struck out two and walked one.

The Ladies had chances throughout the second game, but ended up stranding eight. Two base runners were left on base in the first, fourth, and fifth innings for the Maroon and White. Only three Ladies picked up hits in the game. Whitney Patterson, Lauren Swift, and Lynsi Unruh each had singles in the loss.

TU finally broke the scoreless tie in the fifth inning with two runs. Brooke Sanchez scored on a throw trying to get Chrissy Armstrong for the first run. Two batters later, Megan Russell doubled to bring in Armstrong.

Lauren Mercado (3-2) went a complete game in the circle. The Tigers hurler scattered three hits, walked four, and fanned six in the contest.

Jessica McDonald managed the only hit for the Maroon and White in the 5th inning in game one. Trinity had a steady offensive attack that finally pulled away with a three-run fourth inning.

Unruh (4-16) suffered the loss surrendering seven runs (four earned) on eight hits in 4.0 innings. She also had five walks and strikeouts in the defeat. Sconce finished the final two innings retiring all six batters she faced in order.

Sydney Friday (9-7) got the win for Trinity allowing a hit and walk and striking five out over 7.0 innings.

Centenary wraps up the series against Trinity University with a doubleheader tomorrow beginning at 12 p.m.
