The Trine University baseball team, fresh off of another 4 game conference sweep over the weekend against Kalamazoo College, have assured themselves of a place in the 4 team league playoffs that begin next Wednesday.
Once again, starting pitching was the key, as the “bif 4” of Kale Popp, Jake Rightnowar, Braxton Siddons, and Mike Sentman all delivered impressive performances to help run the Trine winning streak to 8, and to take their overall record to 22-14 with 4 games left in the regular season this coming weekend.
Big first innings have become the norm for the Trine offense, and then the stalwart starting pitching takes over.
Coach Greg Perschke’s hitting line-up has been paying big dividends, as the Thunder have been getting nice contributions from everyone up & down the batting order.
Obviously, things are very unpredictable, but Trine seems to be peaking at the right time. Is this the beginning of a possible run through the league tournament, and then into the national tourney? We will know in a little over a week. Good Luck Thunder!
