Gold claims 4th at Tchefuncta Invitational

by Braden Chalker

The Troy Trojans baseball program has started the season off in spectacular fashion, winning seven straight games to start the season. The Trojans hosted Stony Brook in a three-game series over the weekend.

On Friday night, the Trojans had to mount a comeback as they were trailing against the Seawolves 4-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning. Junior William Sullivan sparked the comeback for the Trojans as he hit a home run that led to seven runs being scored in the eighth inning. 

The score was then 9-4 in favor of Troy, which would end up being the final score.

The Trojans found themselves in another hole on Saturday, down 10-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning against the Seawolves. But a comeback was never in doubt, as Troy would go on to score nine unanswered runs throughout the game to ensure victory, 15-11 over Stony Brook. 

The Trojans also set a new school record for the most home runs hit in a game with seven. 

The final game of the series with Stony Brook proved to be anything but comfortable for Troy.

The Trojans jumped out to a 9-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning, but that’s when things started to take a turn. 

Stony Brook scored five runs in the ninth inning bringing the score to 9-7 in favor of Troy. The Trojans were forced to make three pitching changes to stop the Seawolves’ comeback. However, the Trojans were able to hold off Stony Brook to win 9-7 and take the series, 3-0.

Troy will look to build on this competitive spirit that saw them mount comebacks and remain unbeaten when they host UAB on Tuesday, February 28, at 6:00 p.m., at Riddle-Pace Field.
