5. University of Dallas - 30
6t Schreiner University - 21

Man, this has been a long month.  Most of the schools in TX were impacted in one way or another by last week's prolonged cold spell which disrupted power and then water across a wide part of the state.  Austin (city, not school) set all kinds of records including longest duration of freezing or below temperatures, record lows, record low highs, and longest period of time with at least 1" of snow on the ground (by two days).   Similar conditions led to the SCAC calling off all competitions last week but things are looking much better (from a temperature perspective; there are still millions without water) and Trinity will finally kick their season off today against Howard Payne this evening, followed by four games with Southwestern split home/away this weekend.   SCAC conference play kicks in mid-March.

Trinity improves to 5-0 on the young season with a 19-3 run-rule shellacking of Southwestern.  Brian Schaub continued his hot hand at the plate with 4 RBIs including a bases-loaded double with two outs in the bottom of the third when the outcome was still in doubt.   In five games he is batting .545 with 8 RBI, 2 HR, and a 1.182 slugging percentage in 11 official at-bats.  He's also drawn 8 walks and been HBP 4 times for an outstanding .783 on-base percentage.   Rafe Chaumette is also having a fine early season, batting .500 with 6 RBI from the leadoff position.

Trinity now heads out of town for basically the entire month of March, doing the ASC West starting with a single game Tuesday at HSU, followed by visits to McMurry, Sul Ross (3), and Concordia (2) before a conference set at TLU (3).  The road trip ends with a single at UMHB and three SCAC games at St. Thomas.   The Tigers' next home game will be March 30th against Concordia.

After last night’s Sul Ross victory over Trinity, today’s game, originallly scheduled for 1pm, was pushed to this evening due to strong winds which took the roof off the Kokernot Field batting cages.   See that here:  https://www.instagram.com/p/CMX1JkOl7vR/?igshid=ij7ok45v2enn

What a wild, wild day in the SCAC. Southwestern sweeps Centenary, Dallas beats TLU, and Schreiner beats Trinity. Add in there were multiple walk-offs around the conference (Southwestern and UD each had walk-offs, and Austin College beat St. Thomas with a walk-off homer in game two), and it's one of the craziest days in the conference I can recall.

Texas Lutheran survives a gallant effort by Trinity, who after defeating Southwestern 13-9 around 1AM yesterday morning came out of the loser's bracket and forced not only a second, winner-take-all game on Sunday, but managed to push it to extra innings before falling 16-15.  The winning run scored thanks to a three-base throwing error in the top of the tenth after Trinity tied it in the bottom of the ninth thanks in no small part to a three-base fielding error.  TLU's Blade Strzelczyk allowed no hits in two innings of relief to pick up the W; in 9 appearances in short relief (11 innings) this season he has yet to allow a run.

Rafe Chaumette, who hit .406 for Trinity last season, has transferred to Boston College for his final year of collegiate ball.  His absence will be keenly felt (four-time first-team All-SCAC) but I wish him the best with this opportunity!
