SULLY — Lynnville-Sully’s baseball team won at home Wednesday night in a close game then lost on the road Friday in another contest that went to the final inning.
Being the home team was important in the two one-run games play by the Hawks in South Iowa Cedar League play.
H-L-V of Victor tied Wednesday’s game up with two runs in the third inning. Lynnville-Sully responded with a run in its half of the inning, regaining the lead, 3-2. The Hawks maintained their advantage for the next 3 1/2 innings.
Lucas Smith threw a complete game for the win. Smith allowed five hits walked five and struck out three.
Zach Kaldenberg cranked out two singles for the Hawks. T.J. Cunningham tripled and Daniel Zimmerman singled.
At Belle Plaine Friday, the Hawks rallied from a 2-0 first-inning deficit to lead 5-3 by the end of the sixth inning. Belle Plaine scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 6-5.
Jake Brand took the pitching loss for Lynnville-Sully, going the whole way. He gave up 10 hits, walked three and struck out 10.
Zach Maasdam and Payton Scandridge each delivered two singles for the Hawks. Kaldenberg doubled. Sage Ehresman and Zimmerman each had a single.
Lynnville-Sully is 6-4 overall and 4-4 in SICL play. The Hawks travel to Iowa Valley tonight and host Montezuma on Wednesday.
