[MARCH 31, 2005]  WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. -- Lincoln College evened its record at 6-6 with a doubleheader baseball victory over Webster College here Wednesday afternoon. The Lynx won the first game 4-1 and took the nightcap 6-0.

Lincoln College plays at Moline today (Thursday) against Black Hawk and is scheduled for the home opener Saturday against Parkland.

Scott Aeschelman picked up the win in the opener with six innings of work, giving up one earned run and seven hits while striking out five and walking two. Colton McClellan pitched the seventh for the save, striking out one batter. Lincoln was able to collect just three hits in the contest, with Tyler Casson, Adam York and Brian Rynearson each collecting a safety. Casson scored a run and drove in a run.

"It had been 10 days since we saw live pitching, and it showed," said Lincoln coach Tony Thomas. "We were able to score four times with just three hits in the first game, but we played good defense. We did put the bat on the ball a lot better in the second game. We have been playing real well, and the coaching staff is excited with this bunch of guys. The layoff hurt us, but we had enough to get a couple of wins."

McClellan pitched the first three innings of the second game and earned the victory, with Jarad Otloe pitching two innings. McClellan gave up one hit, and Otloe gave up three hits with three strikeouts. Blaen Fletcher worked one inning, and Kyle Bruce pitched the final inning.
