Lincoln went 3-for-4 with two runs, a double and stolen base. He was on base in the first inning when a balk was called, moving him into scoring position. He later scored on Josh Costello’s RBI single.
In the next inning, Lincoln and Anthony Maioriello each scored runs on RBIs from Luke Giffen and Jacob Woodall.
Eagle River’s Joshua Linn scored his team's lone run and pitched three shutout innings of relief. Josh Agron singled and stole two bags.
South increased its lead to 12-2 in the all-time series since 2007.

West 7, Bartlett 0 forfeit
The Golden Bears did not have enough players to field a team.
Chugiak 11, Service 0
Billy Smith faced the minimum 18 batters on his way to pitching 1-hitter over his six-inning complete-game effort at Bartlett High School to help the Mustangs continue their recent success against the Cougars.
Smith needed only 56 pitches and faced only one 3-ball count. He struck out four and walked zero as Chugiak improved to 6-1 against Service since 2015.
Garrett Nevells had two RBIs and joined Christian Cambridge, Ian Frizelle and Smith to collect a hit, a run and an RBI. Bran Wing doubled and had two stolen bases.
Service pinch-hitter Hutton Stiles broke up the no-hitter with a leadoff single but was erased the very next play on a double play.
Service still leads the all-time series 28-21 dating back to 1992.

After inking his letter of intent earlier in the day, Jake Andresen put his signature on a big win with a home run at the K fields as the Lynx beat the T-birds for the sixth straight time since 2013.
The Mesa CC-bound all-star went 3-for-3 with two runs and two RBIs.
Dimond’s Kaden Roettger went 2-for-4 with three RBIs and he also pitched a scoreless inning, striking out the side. Kobe Vanderwood scored four runs and Kyle Masiey tripled.
