Trojans bow out of state baseball playoffs

The Trojans exited the Class-AA State Baseball Playoffs in the first round on Friday with 10-0, and 11-1 losses at the expense of the powerful Region 6-AA Blessed Trinity Titans in Roswell, Ga. The Metro-Atlanta Private School was just on another level, as anybody that attended the games could attest. A little background info from the Titan’s website just accented what the Trojan followers discovered Friday. ”In 7 years, the Titans have won 2 region championships, 2 region runner-ups, a State Championship, advanced to the Sweet 16 four years in a row, made the State Playoffs five years in a row, and in the last 4 years, have amassed a record of 122-31. Blessed Trinity has sent 16 players on to play college baseball, and have had 3 players, either drafted, or sign with major league teams.” The current edition of the Titans Roster is carrying two D-1 players in Jake Skole and Alex Cruz. Skole, according to reports, has signed with Clemson, and Cruz — according to unsubstantiated-rumors in the stands is the son of Jose’ Cruz, Jr. of the Houston Astros. The rumor being circulated was that Cruz moved from California to Atlana to play for the Blessed Trinity Titans Baseball Program. The Titans have — just this seaon — dropped down from Class-AAA to Class-AA in the GHSA’s recent Classification-Realignment. Blessed Trinity’s Campus had the feel– and, look — of a college campus, and was one of the most beautiful that you will find at the high school level. As a matter of fact, upon entering the campus, one could have mistaken it for a ‘Quasi-Blessed Trinity University’. In Game-1, the Titans outscored the Trojans 10-0 in five-innings to end the game on the GHSA Mercy Rule. In this game, the Titans would hit 5-homeruns in an awesome display of power. Senior, Blane Parker took the loss for the Trojans. Offensively, the Trojans could only manage 2-hits — both of which were bloop singles — from Calvin Adams and Bailey Thompson. Blessed Trinty 10-13-0 Lamar Co. 0-2-0 In Game-2, it was more of the same, as the Titans prevailed by a score of 11-1 in 6-innings. Again, the GHSA Mercy Rule came into play in ending the game, due to the margin of 10-runs, after-five innings of play. Junior, T.J. English took the loss on the mound for the Trojans. The Titans would again crank-up their bats, as they lost-3-more baseballs deep into the night in the trees beyond the outfield fence. Marc English and Trent Nix, also, worked in the late innings in relief of T.J. English. Offensively, the Trojans only managed 3-hits off of the Titans pitchers — all-singles — by Devin Couch, Keaton Brown, & Jake Shockley. Blessed Trinity 11-8-0 Lamar Co. 1-3-0
