MIDLAND, TX- Euless Trinity (22-12, 9-3) and Frenship (23-13, 8-7) both made the journey to Midland, TX Thursday night for a neutral site best-of-three regional quarterfinal matchup at Christensen Stadium. Two uncommitted seniors in Trinity’s RHP Nick Canard and Frenship’s RHP Austin Phillips would take mound in this one.

The Trojans would score early and often, plating five runs in the first three innings. In the bottom-half of the first a couple of leadoff singles from Mclennan JC commit C Jimmy Crooks (No. 104 in the PBR Texas 2019 class rankings, and No.12 at his position), and SS Nike TraTree would put runners in scoring position, for Northeast JC commit Nico Baumbach who would push a run across on fielders-choice ball to the right-side giving them an early 1-0 lead.

Frenship would respond in the top-half of the second, after some control issues from Canard and few issued base-on-balls, the Tigers would be able to capitalize on an RBI single from senior CF Caeden Jenkins to the game at one apiece.

Euless would add one more in the second (2-1) on an RBI double that would bounce off the left-field wall from Frank Phillips JC commit 1B Jeremy Colon. In the third, an RBI double from Baumbach and a big-time two-run home run from senior RF Sebastian Colon would bust it open for the Trojans (5-1). Canard would be able to settle in after a shaky second, and would be very effective for Trinity finishing his night going with a line of 6.1 IP, 4H, 8K, R.

In the top half of the seventh, Frenship would make things interesting after a two-run blast that was driven deep left-centerfield from UNM commit 3B Jacob Gutierrez reducing the deficit to two (5-3). Despite, a late push the Tigers would ultimately fall to Trinity 5-3.

Final Score: Euless Trinity 5, Frenship 3.

Nick Canard, RHP, Euless Trinity, 2019
Uncommitted. Canard has a strong, athletic frame at an estimated 6-foot, 180-pounds, with plenty of room for continued physical development. One of the better uncommitted seniors’ right-handers we’ve seen this season. Strong, athletic, long arm action, over the top arm slot, smooth, athletic repeatable delivery. Fastball was 84-85 in the early innings, but after some control issues was able to settle in at 81-83 through the majority of the outing, a guy that will likely add more velocity as he begins to fill into his frame. Curveball showed gradual break, 11-5 shape at 66-69, was able to collect numerous punchouts with it. CH was 72-75, still developing feel for the pitch. Was very effective for Trinity going 6.1 IP, 8K, 4H, R, 4BB.
