[MARCH 16, 2005]  BIRMINGHAM, Ala -- The Lincoln College baseball team split a doubleheader with Jefferson State here Tuesday afternoon, winning the nightcap 7-4. Jefferson State won a pitching battle in the opener, 2-1. Lincoln College is now 2-5, while Jefferson State stands at 13-6. The Lynx are slated to play a twin bill Wednesday against Faulkner in Montgomery, Ala.

Bryant Wright had three hits in four trips and drove in a pair of runs to lead the Lincoln College hitters in the victory. Brad Hall had a solo homer for the Lynx in the seventh inning. Collecting one hit each for Lincoln College were Tyler Casson, Adam York, Andy Bakhaus and Kyle Killenger.

Max McCorvie picked up the win for the Lynx, giving up one earned run in four innings of work. Kyle Bruce pitched two innings, and Colton McClellan picked up the save with one inning of work.

In the first game, Hall and Wright had the lone hits for Lincoln College. Matt Miller was the tough-luck loser, giving up just two runs in five innings while striking out five and walking four.

"We have played very well down here," said Lincoln coach Tony Thomas. "We have come out and competed with these teams. A lot of our teams in the past have not really competed well with the southern teams. Our coaching staff is excited about our chances with this group. They have had opportunities, and we are just one key play from getting over the hump. Matt pitched an excellent game in the opener and we had some chances but didn't get the key hit."
