Bryan Frazier stepped to the plate with two on Thursday for his Trinidad, Colo., Triggers, who were trailing yet again to the Garden City Wind.
And yet again, the Triggers got another win as Frazier took a 1-0 pitch and drilled it for a three-run home run at Clint Lightner Stadium to give the Triggers a 5-3 win and a three-game series sweep over the Wind, who are still searching for their franchise first win.
The Wind (0-3) were led by Jacob Gonzalez’s hitting. The center fielder went 1-2, drove in one and scored one run. He homered in the fifth inning to give the Wind a short-lived 3-2 lead.
Caleb Bryson was hot from the plate for the Triggers (3-0). He went 2 for 3, drove in one and scored two runs. He homered in the fourth inning and singled in the eighth.
Starting pitcher Richie Anderson improved to 1-0 by picking up the win. He allowed three runs over five innings. Anderson struck out four, walked one and gave up five hits.
Jake Swartout pitched in relief for the Triggers. The Wind managed just one hit off of Swartout, who allowed no earned runs, walked none and struck out two during his three innings of work.
Zack Russell-Myers ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with his first loss of the year. He lasted five innings, walked none, struck out three, and allowed five runs.
The Wind and Triggers now begin a three-game set in Trinidad, Colo., beginning Friday.
