Lions' comeback falls short at Dominion

MARIETTA — Trinity Christian’s comeback effort against Dominion Christian came up short in an 8-5 loss where the visiting Lions battled back from an early four-run deficit to tie the game, only to watch the game spin out of control again in the bottom of the sixth.

“We’re a young team that’s still trying to find a way to win,” said Trinity head coach Brian Chmielewski.

The loss dropped the Lions to 2-3 and 0-1 following their Region 1-AAA opener.

Dominion stayed unbeaten in region play at 2-0 while moving to 3-4 overall.

Down 4-0 after one inning and 5-1 heading into the sixth, the Lions battled back to tie the game with help from a two RBI single by Kyle Head and Devin Colburn’s infield single that plated another Trinity run.

The Lions proceeded, however, to allow a pair of bases-loaded walks in the bottom of the sixth to give the lead back to Dominion for good in a final three-run rally by the Knights.

Cole Elrod went 5 ? innings for the Lions giving up four runs, but just two earned in the loss.

Trinity had a chance to jump ahead immediately in its first at bat, loading the bases with no outs, but coming up empty.

The Lions were scheduled to open region play against Dominion on Tuesday at home, but the teams decided to reschedule the game for Wednesday in Marietta. Dominion will now travel to Trinity to complete the regular-season series on April 22.

Trinity returns to 1-AAA play on Friday at home against Loganville Christian.
