SALTDOGS BASEBALL: Lincoln Falls Short Late to Lake Country

The Lincoln Saltdogs pushed it to the limit in the bottom of the ninth but the comeback effort fell short as the Lake Country DockHounds took game two 11-9 on Wednesday night at Haymarket Park. The DockHounds took control early and often with four runs in the top of the first, but the Saltdogs were able to even the score after two innings at four a piece. That was the trend of the game, Lake Country would take the lead, the Saltdogs would counter, but the DockHounds started stringing together multi-run innings while Lincoln would just get one. The Hounds scored in the last three innings to really create separation and INF Luke Roskam made his second appearance on the mound this season in the top of the ninth. The ‘Dogs scored three times in the bottom of the ninth to put the winning run on first base but they fell just short. Final game of the series is Thursday night, with pregame starting at 6:35pm on KFOR.
