Warriors do the broom thing against No. 3 Trinity

The Hendrix baseball team completed one of the most successful weekends in program history Sunday, defeating Trinity, third-ranked in NCAA Division III, 5-4, to sweep the three-game series at Warrior Field.

The Tigers, perennial DIII powers, had not been swept in a three-game series since 2007.


The Warriors improved to 15-11 overall, while the Tigers fell to 21-6. The three-game sweep was the first against TU since 2007.



Trailing 4-3, the Warriors won it in the eighth.  Matt Simmons led the eighth off with a hit and scored on a Wyatt Hogan double to tie the game at 4-4. Hogan was lifted for sophomore pinch- runner Zach Crenshaw of Conway. With one out, freshman Logan Hiatt singled to put runners on the corner. Austin Womack plated Censhaw with a sac bunt, which turned out to be the game-winning run.

Collin Radack went 2 for 4 with two runs scored, a double and a steal, Hogan had two hits, with a double, one RBI and a run and Hiatt also had two hits. Seth Mobley went 2 for 3 with a sacrifice bunt and RBI. Womack had two RBI despite not producing a hit.


Senior reliever Justin Mosbey (1-0) earned the win by throwing three scoreless innings, allowing just a walk. Mosbey has thrown 18.2 consecutive scoreless innings and last gave up a run on Feb. 28.



Hendrix will return to Southern Athletic Association play when it travels  to Berry College next weekend for a three-game series.
