Colton McClellan took the loss. Scott Aeschelman pitched the first five inning, giving up four hits and three runs, one earned, while striking out one and walking two. Kyle Bruce fanned two in his one inning of work.

"We played some great baseball and were just one or two plays from being undefeated on the trip," said Lincoln coach Tony Thomas said. "We were in every game and had a chance to win in each of them. We lost a tough one in the last game Sunday, but we had chances to put more runs on the board and just didn't get the key hit. We played all close games on the trip, and that should help make us better as the season goes on."

The Lynx will be in action Wednesday, when they travel to Lebanon to take on McKendree College at 1 p.m.
