SCAC Baseball Recap - Week Six

SCAC Baseball Recap - Week Six

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - All seven Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference baseball teams were in action last week, combining for a 12-7 record in non-conference action.

The University of Dallas, Texas Lutheran University and Trinity University all went undefeated last week, while Southwestern University picked up a series win.

Texas Lutheran swept a series against the University of Texas - Dallas on the road, holding the Comets to just six runs between the three games, while scoring 28. The weekend was highlighted by Riley Schaefer's three home run performance in the series finale.

With these wins, the Bulldogs move to 15-3 on the season and extend their winning streak to six games. In the latest D3baseball.com poll, TLU was receiving votes.

Seventh-ranked Trinity went 2-0 on the week, earning wins over Our Lady of the Lake and Millikin. The 9-0 win over Millikin was nearly a combined no-no, as James Nittoli held onto a perfect game through six innings before Jeff Lonnecker came on in relief. Lonnecker went two more innings without allowing a hit, but the Big Blue was able to get two hits in the final innings to spoil the feat.

The Tigers are now 10-1 on the season and have won four straight.

The Crusaders of Dallas had a short week as well, but picked up wins in a doubleheader against Blackburn College on Sunday.

Southwestern earned a series win over Millikin, including handing the Big Blue their first loss of the season. The Pirates are now 5-5 on the season.

Austin College and Centenary College each picked up one win over the week, as the 'Roos defeated LeTourneau University and the Gents took down University of the Redlands.
