The Trinidad Triggers (9-2) shut the door early on the Garden City Wind (3-7), capturing a 15-6 victory on Sunday at Central Park.
With eight runs in the first three innings, the Trinidad Triggers left no doubt about the eventual outcome.

and a three-run home run by Eric Magee
in the first inning and a three-run double by Eric William
during the second inning fueled the Trinidad Triggers offense early.
