Trinity posted 21 hits in two games to hand Southwestern a pair of losses 8-0, 7-4 at home Saturday.
In the second inning Trinity took a commanding lead with six runs and added two more in the fourth while holding the Pirates scoreless despite six hits in the run-rule loss.
Trinity rode the momentum right into game two, scoring two runs in the each of the first three innings to lead 6-0. Southwestern punched back this time, however, and scored three runs in the bottom of the third to cut TU's lead to three, 6-3.
Trinity pushed one more across in the fifth and were just three outs away from sealing the win. Southwestern made a strong attempt to uproot those plans, but the comeback was cut short after SU scored two in the seventh.
Irvin was the only Pirate to record multiple hits, going 2-4 from the plate while Caroline Young drove in three runs. Alyssa Novander suffered the loss, allowing four runs on seven hits in 1.1 innings.
Southwestern falls to 16-19 on the year and 12-9 in the SCAC but remain in second place in the conference. Trinity improves to 16-16 overall and 10-9 in conference play.
The two teams finish their series on Sunday with a double-header beginning at noon.
