MANSFIELD — Troy’s magic number is down to one after their 13-4 win over NP-Mansfield in NTL baseball action Thursday.

The Trojans are one win away from clinching an NTL Division-I title and have two games to do it, traveling to Sayre on Friday.


On Thursday they jumped out with three runs in the second. NPM out scored them 2-1 in the third, but Troy out scored them 2-1 in the fourth to take a 6-3 lead.


A 5-run fifth gave the Trojans some breathing room, and after a scoreless sixth they out scored NPM 2-1 in the seventh for the 9-run win.


“A great team win,” said Troy coach Lyle Wesneski. “We dodged the rain and was able to get it in - everyone contributed tonight and our pitching and defense was excellent.”


They finished with 14 hits on the day and no errors as Brendan Gilliland (3-for-4) had two doubles, 2-RBI, and two runs scored, while Camryn Harwick (3-for-4) scored a run and drove one in.


Mason Smith (2-for-5) had 2-RBI with three runs scored, as Reed Palmer (2-for-5) also had 2-RBI.

Cooper Shaw (2-for-3) had 2-RBI to lead NP-Mansfield, while Alex Davis took the loss, going three innings with one strikeout, two walks, six hits and four earned runs.


Troy (13-4) has three games left - Sayre Friday, Midd-West Saturday, and CV in their season finale at home on Tuesday.


“We just need to focus on playing team baseball and play for each other,” said Wesneski. “We are taking things one day at a time - control what you can control.”
