Trinity tops Southwestern Shelby

Trinity Lutheran’s baseball team scored four runs in the fifth inning to rally and defeat Southwestern (Shelby) 5-3 at Alf Snyder Field Monday.

With one out in the bottom of the fifth, Nathan Voelker, Levi Pottschmidt, Sage Broughton and Andrew Bell hit back-to-back-to-back singles, plus the Spartans made a throwing error, had a passed ball and that added up to four runs for the home team.

Trinity took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Broughton singled, and he advanced to third on a single by Bell, and Broughton scored on a wild pitch.

The Spartans scored an unearned run in the top of the second and took advantage of two Trinity errors in the fifth to score one run.

Trinity (8-17) has won six of its last seven and Coach Ben Kleber said he likes the progress he is seeing from his team.

“The top of the order has really bought in, especially since we moved Pottschmidt to the two hole. That’s really lengthened our lineup. Any time I need him to get a bunt down it looks like he gets a bunt down so it’s nice to have him there,” Kleber said. “Sage has been doing a good job seeing the baseball. It’s been one-through-nine. Our approach has been a lot better the last two weeks. We’re not striking out as much, and you’re going to win ball games when you’re not striking out all the time.”

Pottschmidt, Broughton, and Bell had two hits each, with Voelker, Luke Coomler and Peyton Pollert all getting one hit.

Voelker went the distance on the mound as he allowed six hits, had seven strike outs and three walks, and hit three batters.

Voelker struck out the side in the third inning, but the Spartans left 12 runners on base for the game.

“It was nice to see Nathan battle on the mound without having his best stuff. He wanted the ball and that is what you like to see, kids that want the ball,” Kleber said. “We’ve been doing a really good job on the defensive side of the ball. We made a couple changes on defense two or three weeks ago and it’s really helped us. Coomler is doing a good job at shortstop, and that opens up some things for some other guys.”

The Cougars will host Clarksville Thursday.
