WOONSOCKET — Two teams heading in opposite directions met up Friday with Mount St. Charles maintaining its winning ways courtesy of a come-from-behind 5-3 triumph at Lincoln High’s expense.
Now winners of three of its last four, MSC hung on a four-spot on visiting Lincoln in the home portion of the sixth, erasing what was a 3-1 deficit. The inning began innocently enough with Taylor Sutherland reaching on an error with Dan Glod singling to make it first and second.
A fly out by Brian Campbell, of which Lincoln centerfielder Kyle Jackson made a tremendous catch on, was followed by a single by Nolan Hayward, which loaded the bases for the Mounties. The home team moved to within one (3-2) after Matt LaButti reached on an error, allowing Sutherland to score.
Up stepped Tyler Geffert, the senior captain capping off his banner day with a two-run double that put Mount in front to stay. Geffert finished 2-for-3 with two doubles while driving in three. The Mounties’ final run of the sixth came as the result of the Lions’ third error of the frame.
Sutherland took care of the final three outs on the mound en route to earning the save. Glod earned the win to improve to 3-0 after working the first six innings with two strikeouts and two walks.
Mount St. Charles scored the game’s first run in the second with Hayward beginning things with a single. The sophomore moved to second on a passed ball before coming around to score on a double courtesy of Geffret.
Lincoln responded with two runs in the top of the third. A one-out single by Jeff Sheehan was followed by back-to-back walks to load the bases. Sheehan scored on a wild pitch with Joe Yankee delivering the second run on a sacrifice fly, scoring Jackson.
The Lions stretched the lead to 3-1 in the fifth as Sheehan doubled, moved to third base on a wild pitch before scoring on a Mountie miscue. The Lincoln sophomore went 3-for-3 with two runs scored.
Lincoln starter Matt Knych struck out four in six innings of work. The Lions, who have now dropped third of their last four outings, slip to 5-6 in Division I-North. The Mounties now stand at 6-6 in league play, which is good for tied for third place along with Cumberland.
