For the second year in a row, the Trinity Christian School Lions baseball team is headed to the GISA Class AAA Final Four.

This time, the Lions worked their postseason magic with back-to-back playoff sweeps on the road.

Trinity opened with a sweep at Trinity-Dublin last week before continuing its winning streak with a sweep at Westfield on Friday.

The Lions beat Westfield 5-4 in the first game and 8-4 in the second game to keep their state title hopes alive.

Trinity held off a rally in the last inning of the first game after Westfield loaded the bases.

Matt Holloway turned a solid defense effort into a double play to give the Lions a victory in the first game.

In the second game, Westfield grabbed a 4-0 lead in the top of the first, but that was all the offense it could produce.

Trinity bounced back with five runs in the bottom of the first and never trailed again.

The Lions scored twice in the third and once more in the fifth to seal the victory.

Trinity was paced at the plate in the second game by Brenan Burks’ two-hit, two-RBI performance. Holloway had a couple of hits and drove in two runs.

Trinity plays the winner of Loganville Christian-Deerfield Windsor series next week.
