The Hendrix College baseball lost a pair of one-run games to No. 4 Trinity University in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference action at Warrior Field on Saturday afternoon.

The conference-leading Tigers (28-6, 14-2) overcame a two-run deficit in the seventh to take the opener 5-4, then held off the Warriors' (20-16, 10-6) rallies in the nightcap to win 10-9.


In the second game, the Warriors threatened in the bottom of the ninth when freshman Matt Simmons hit a one-out, pinch-hit triple and scored on a Radack sacrifice fly. Mark Vlaskamp rocketed a line drive to second base for the final out of the game.



Clark Sims went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored. The North Little Rock native  became the Warriors' career-leader with 588 at bats and 154 runs scored. Sims also became the third Hendrix player to reach 200 career hits and is three away from Billy Schewee's record of 203.



Senior Aaron Bowen also had three hits and Vlaskamp and Collin Radack were 2-for-5 with three driven in.
