Isaac Armstrong faced only two West Lincoln batters--and he fanned both, but it wasn't his pitching that made him player of the game in East Lincoln's 4-3 win over West Lincoln Thursday night.  In the third inning, he hit the game's only home run and the two-run shot helped East to a 3-0 lead.

West made a game of it with three in the top of the sixth, but freshman Trey Spees, who was 2 for 3 on the night, knocked in what proved to be the winning run in the bottom of the inning. Logan Palmer got the win, going six innings, giving up just five hits, striking out five and walking only one.

The win was the 11th for East, which has lost only one. They'll play at Newton-Conover Tuesday (June 8th, 5 PM) and host the Red Devils on Friday (June 11th, 7 PM).

North Lincoln has already clinched second place in the conference and thus a spot in the state playoffs along with East, but on Friday, the Lincolnton Wolves handed the Knights their third loss of the season (both of the others were to East Lincoln). Sophomore Will Blackburn pitched a shutout for LHS as the home team avenged a Tuesday loss with a 3-0 victory.  The right-handed Blackburn allowed just four hits and had 10 strikeouts.

Blackburn, Gavin Queen, Gavin Jiminez, Easton Dellinger all doubled. Jiminez's double in the second inning got LHS on the board and that run turned out to be all they needed. Dellinger and Queen drove in the other two runs. Luke Harrill and Garrett Hedgepeth also had hits.

Maiden improved to 7-5 with a 13-3 six-inning win over Newton=Conover. Lake Norman Charter beat Bandys 10-9.

North Lincoln will play at Bandys Tuesday evening and host the Trojans on Thursday (June 10th). Lincolnton will play at Maiden on Tuesday and at home against the Blue Devils on Friday. West will travel to Cornelius on Tuesday, then host Lake Norman Charter on Friday. All of those games are scheduled for 7 PM.

In the Southern Piedmont 1A Conference, Cherryville remains unbeaten.  The Ironmen scored 12 runs in the second inning en route to a 22-0 victory shortened to five innings because of the score as they beat Piedmont Charter on Wednesday.  Lincoln Charter remains one game back after a 10-0 win over Thomas Jefferson Wednesday.  The Al Hussaini brothers graduated Friday; on Wednesday both Nick and Davis helped the Eagles to the win.  Nick scored two runs and Davis batted in two; both hit doubles.

The much awaited rematch of CHS and LCS is coming Tuesday at Cherryville's Fraley Field (7 PM).  Cherryville won at Denver 4-3 on May 14th.
