No. 3 Trinity (Tex.) Tops Endicott, 12-4

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — The Endicott baseball team fell to No. 3 nationally ranked Trinity (Tex.) University, 12-4, on Friday night in its 2020 season opener.

Corey Cater (Sacramento, Calif.) earned the win (2-0) on six innings pitched, four hits, four runs (all earned), three walks, and a game-high 11 strikeouts.

Meanwhile, Cooper Anibal (Bedford, N.H.) took the loss (0-1) via 1 2/3 innings, three hits, five runs (three earned), three free passes, and one strikeout.

Trailing 5-0 in the top of the third inning, Endicott answered with a three-run frame behind RBI singles from John Duffy (Stratford, Conn.) and Kyle Brennan (Wallingford, Conn.) before the duo went on to execute a perfect double steal that sent Duffy home for the third and final run of the inning.

Nickolas Perkins (Nashua, N.H.) plated a run with a groundout to first base in the sixth to bring the game within one (5-4), but the Tigers responded with five runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth to shore up the victory, their fifth straight to start their 2020 campaign.


  • This was the fourth meeting in the all-time series between the two programs.
  • Tonight's game was the home opener for the Tigers.
  • Joseph Brown (Poultney, Vt.) pitched two scoreless innings out of the pen for the Gulls. It's his sixth scoreless relief appearance of two or more innings in his career.
  • Brennan went 2-for-3 with one run scored, an RBI, a triple (sixth career), and a walk. 
  • Last season, Brennan logged 12 multi-hit games for the Gulls.
