ETBU took on Hendrix College this past week at the Ballparks at Craig Ranch. The Tigers’ opposition jumped to a quick start in the first inning but they found themselves back to within one, 4-3, by the fourth inning. Despite the Ti-gers’ consistent rally, Hendrix tacked on two more runs in the fifth for a three-run lead and a heavy blow to the come-back. ETBU is now 1-1 on the year and was set to square off against Austin College again, but the rainy weekend leaves the two programs with the burden of rescheduling the matchup for a later date.The team leaders in of-fensive production were Jer-emy Pinder, with three hits in four at-bats and one run scored. Tyler Bates and Matt Sullivan also added to the Ti-gers’ offensive front by adding on one run a piece. Shortstop, Lance Anding, went 2-3 and also scoring a run, but the real story is the amazing 16-game hitting streak that Anding has been building since last season. Since the recent rain outs of this week’s games have been announced, Anding will have to wait a bit longer to at-tempt to continue this streak.On the mound, ETBU sent out Zach Tampke with his first start of the year. Tampke went four innings giving up eight hits, four earned runs, and only 2 walks. Hendrix’s Nick Land went five innings for the win and Daniel Imbro received the save.After Hendrix jumped on the first inning and went score-less in the second, Anding started the 3rd inning for the Tigers with a single through the right side and Pinder fol-lowed with a poke through the left side. Bates then brought in the first run with a double to left field as Anding came in. Sullivan’s ground out allowed Pinder to come in making the score, 4-2.Anding singled in the third run of the game with his second hit of the game. His hit up the middle let Chris Abascal score from third bringing the lead down to one, 4-3. Hendrix answered in the fifth with two runs that put their lead to three, 6-3.Abascal was the team’s fourth run in the sixth inning with two outs when he came in on a Hendrix error. With two outs and the bases loaded, ETBU had a chance to tie the game but could not get the go-ahead hit.
