Despite losing both ends of a doubleheader Saturday at Edsel Ford, Trenton battled back each time from a big deficit and challenged the Thunderbirds in the late innings.

In the first game, the Trojans (1-2, 1-0 Downriver League) lost 6-5 after falling behind 5-0 early and in the nightcap were defeated 7-5 in a game they had trailed 7-0.

To kick off the twin bill, Edsel got five first-inning runs, helped out by an RBI each from Cole Moore, Marco Marchelletta and Tristan Licht. Scoring for the T-Birds in the first inning were Austin Atwood, Justin Payne, Moore, Marchelletta and Drew Conover.

Trenton answered in the second, as Solomon Marcus hit an RBI double that plated Quinn Preston and both Denny Szczechowski and Brett Murray scored in the inning, as well. Szczechowski, who was serving as a courtesy runner for Jake Nabozny, scored again in the third and made it a 5-4 game.

A single by Licht in the bottom of the third drove in Marchelletta to make it 6-4 in favor of the hosts and that score held until the top of the sixth when Nabozny got on with a single and later scored to pull his team to within one again.

In the seventh, Trenton mounted a threat with two runners on, but the T-Birds ultimately shut the door.

Atwood started on the mound for Edsel and went five innings, while Austyn Ramos threw the last two.

Kyle Kasenow started on the hill for the Trojans and pitched five innings and Grant McClellan threw one.

The second game featured a six-run T-Birdsí outburst in the first inning, highlighted by an RBI each from Ramos, Marchelletta, Zach Mihalik, Donald Mosely and Atwood, who also scored on a passed ball earlier in the inning.

In the bottom of the fifth, Edsel added one more to go up 7-0, but Trenton got four in the top of the sixth and one in the seventh to the cut the deficit to 7-5, thanks to two RBIs from Szczechowski and one from Nabozny, along with timely base running by Nabozny and Jerry LaBell.

The Trojans had the tying runs on in the seventh, but once again the T-Birds shut the door and survived with a victory.

Mihalik threw five innings for Edsel and Devin Michaelis tossed the last two, while Markus came in for Trenton in relief of Dru Doree and was sharp in 5.2 innings of work.

Trenton is scheduled to host Melvindale Monday and Edsel is set for a trip to Southfield-Lathrup the same day.
