  • Titans hammer visiting Shamrocks

    After scoring nine runs in each of their first two games, the Collins baseball team built on that against perennial power Trinity, whipping the visiting Shamrocks 10-2 Thursday.

    The reigning 8th Region champs used a 6-run first inning to put Trinity on the ropes, and the Shamrocks never were able to regain their balance from that early haymaker.

    Senior Zac Wiley powered the Titans with dominating pitching. In five innings he gave up one earned run on six hits while striking out six.
