Lions split final two games with Lincoln

Updated:

JOPLIN -- Missouri Southern got two outstanding pitching performances today, but managed just a split with visiting Lincoln University, winning game one, 4-0, but dropping game two, 6-4. 

The Lions (18-24, 14-22 MIAA) picked up a stellar outing from game one starter Brett Abell as the junior went all seven, in a complete-game shutout, striking out five and walking none. He allowed just three hits and threw just 80 pitches. 

Harrison Gerber had the big bat in game one, with three RBIs in the opener. Dane Kolkmeyer had a pair of hits, while Tee Helsel and Zach Campbell had a hit each. Campbell drove in a run and Helsel scored twice. 

Game two starter Tyler Jinks was making his first collegiate start on senior day as the Springfield native went eight innings and scattered 12 hits, while allowing just four earned runs. He struck out nine and walked none, throwing 134 ptiches in the process. 

Kolkmeyer had two hits and two RBIs, scoring once, while Patrick Deao went 2-5, as well. Gerber, Helsel and CJ Matthews all had a hit each in the game. 

Lincoln (12-25, 11-25 MIAA) starter Stephen Schnieders went five innings and allowed just three hits and one earned run, while striking out two. He got saddled with the no decision as reliever Darren Lasley picked up a win with James Johndrow grabbing the final two outs for a save. 

The Blue Tigers started the scoring in game one and had a 3-0 lead after four innings. The Lions answered back with a pair of runs in the fifth on an RBI single from Kolkmeyer scoring Kevin Burgi and Matthews. Southern picked up the tying run in the seventh when Gerber scored on an error. 

Lincoln, however scored three runs in the top of the ninth and despite a run from the Lions in the bottom half of the inning, hung on for the win. 

The Lions will be back in action next weekend with four games at Southwest Baptist.
