[March 28, 2011]  Lincoln College played host to Lewis and Clark Community College on Saturday. In the cold, the Lynx were able to come away with a split: a 1-0 win and an 8-7 loss in 10 innings. When the first pitch was thrown out, the temperature was 36 degrees with wind gusts up 17 mph.

The Lynx rolled out Luke Giddens (Cincinnati, Ohio) in game one. Giddens was nearly unhittable, striking out 10 and only allowing two hits. The no-hitter was still active until the final frame, when Lewis and Clark was able to scrape together two hits. The complete-game shutout would lead to Giddens’ first win on the season.

The Lynx offense was only able to produce one run on five hits. Kenny May (Belleville) was able to drive in Nick Burrus (Cincinnati, Ohio) in the home half of the fifth to seal the victory.

Game two was extended into 10 innings and a loss for the Lynx in a thrilling 8-7 contest. After trailing 6-1 early in the game, the Lynx were able to battle all the way to back to tie the game 6-6 in the eighth inning.

Lynx starter Miles Quintal (O’Fallon) went only three innings, suffering six runs on seven hits. Steven Sotiropoulos (Belleville) tossed 6 1/3 quality innings, giving up one earned run on five hits.

Lincoln went into the home half of the 10th down two and led off the inning with back-to-back doubles by Milton Alvira (Orlando, Fla.) and Manny Acevedo (Orlando, Fla.). Trailing by one, Andrew Mosier (Lake Orion, Mich.) was hit by a pitch. With runners on first and second and no outs, the Lynx failed on a bunt attempt and then grounded into a double play to end the threat.

The Lynx (4-9, 1-1 MWAC) were scheduled to travel to Godfrey to take on Lewis and Clark Community College again Sunday for a two-game set.
