BASEBALL: Trevino homers twice, ORU splits with Nicholls State

TULSA — The Oral Roberts University baseball team got a 12 strikeout performance from junior Alex Gonzalez in game one of a double header Saturday, winning the contest 7-2 before dropping the second game 12-9.

Battling injuries, Jose Trevino blasted a pair of three-run home runs in the first inning of each game. He finished the day with five hits and eight runs batted in, including a three for four outing in game two.

Kevin Cho and Logan Domenico combined for five hits in the two-game set, while Matt Brandy, Austen Colt and Brandon Healy had four hits on the day.

Gonzalez was outstanding in the opening contest, striking out a season high 12 with just four hits in seven innings en route to his sixth victory of the season. Nathan Garza (0-4) was credited with the loss in game two, while Drew Bowen pitched four innings and allowed four runs in the start.

The Golden Eagles record moved to 14-26 overall and 9-8 in Southland Conference play. Sunday’s contest against Nicholls State (23-21, 6-11 SLC) is set for 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Game One

Trevino quickly put the Golden Eagles on the board in the opening inning of the afternoon with a three-run blast that scored Cho and Domenico who each singled earlier in the inning.

The Colonels got on the board in the top of the fourth as Matt Richard doubled and scored two batters later on a Phillip Lyons double.

Already leading 3-1, the Golden Eagles quickly added four more runs to break open the game in the bottom of the fifth. After singles from Brandy and Domenico to start the inning, Trevino singled in his fourth RBI of the game to score Brandy. Domenico crossed the plate as Tyler Boss reached on an error by the Colonel shortstop.

On the same play as the misplayed groundball at short, the left fielder had his own issues fielding the ball which allowed Domenico to score and Trevino to advance to third. Trevino eventually scored on a groundout to give the Golden Eagles an 8-1 lead.
