Kelvin George was 4 for 7 with 5 RBI and 2 runs scored overall, and Jordan Keys scored three times in Game 2 as Trinity Baptist College swept the first of two consecutive double-headers with NAIA Voorhees College Friday afternoon at Trinity Ballyard. The Eagles took both games by scores of 5-0 and 11-1.
George was 1 for 3 with a triple, a run scored, and a run driven in in the opener and 3 for 3 with 4 RBI in the nightcap for 6 total bases and 5 RBI in the double-header. Keys, meanwhile, returned from injury and made the most of his opportunity when he singled and walked twice in Game 2 and came around to score three runs.
Jon Shiver started the opener and pitched five scoreless innings in earning the win. Shiver allowed only two hits while walking none and striking out five. He also tripled and scored a run at the plate and added 1 RBI in Game 2 while playing center field.
Dan Richard pitched the final two innings of the opener, allowing two hits and striking out one man. At bat, Richard was a force with two hits, a run scored, and a run driven in.
The Eagles trailed for a total of one half inning when Voorhees pushed across a run in the top of the second in Game 2. Trinity came right back to take a 2-1 lead in the bottom half and continued to add runs in each inning: three in the third, one in the fourth, and five in the fifth to force the 10-run rule.
David Hall was 3 for 5 with 1 RBI and 2 runs scored overall while David Quevedo was 3 for 6 with 1 RBI and 2 runs scored.
Michael Cohick pitched a complete game in the nightcap. He allowed only one earned run one five hits, no walks, and three strikeouts. Cohick stated that he felt great command of his curve ball, which was his best pitch of the day.
Cohick also picked off three Voorhees base runners to help end scoring opportunities.
The two teams will play another double-header Saturday afternoon at Trinity. The first pitch is scheduled for 12:00 noon; the time change is due to inclement weather in the forecast for late in the afternoon and into the evening. The Eagles will then travel to Miami for a three-game set at Florida National University next weekend April 13 and 14.
