2009 SCAC Baseball Championships - Hendrix vs. Trinity

Third seeded Hendrix College advanced to its first ever SCAC baseball championship game with a 9-7 win over rival and second seeded Trinity University. The Warriors used a six run sixth inning to turn a 2-2 game into an 8-2 lead and survived a furious Trinity rally in the final three innings. Jeff Forgerson's ninth inning home run added an insurance run for the Warriors as Trinity added two runs in the bottom of the ninth to fall just short. Eight of the nine runs Hendrix scored were unearned runs. Trinity again continued its torrid offense collecting 17 more hits to up their total to 57 hits through three games. Leading the way for the Tigers was first baseman Evan Jones who went 5-for-5 with three RBI and two doubles. Jones is hitting an astounding 11-for-14 (.786). The 11 hits are one shy of tying an SCAC Tournament record and Jones is on pace to establish a new conference tournament mark for batting average.

After the game the SCACs Jeff DeBaldo caught up with Hendrix head coach RJ Thomas and Jeff Forgerson.
