LINCOLN --- With a 5-0 shutout against the Smithfield Sentinels Friday, the Lincoln Lions improved their record to 14-0 and clinched the Northern Division.
Including yesterday’s game, the Lions have only played in five games that were decided by five or fewer runs, one of which came against Smithfield on April 4. During that game, Lincoln came away with a 3-2 win.
Coach Dick Ryan thought that the grit his squad showed against a Smithfield team that always gives Lincoln a close match was a good sign.

The Clippers took over second place and grabbed their fifth win in their last seven outings with a solid performance that saw the visitors claim the early momentum with five runs in the first two innings, play steady defense, and ride the solid pitching of Caylin Legare to a 6-3 victory that put a damper on the Mounties’ ‘Senior Day’ festivities.
