The Potters won their first matchup of the season with the Palo Alto Oaks to conclude a weekend sweep for Lincoln. The Oaks got the scoring started in the top of the 1st, but the Potters followed with 2 runs of their own on a Charles Midlleton triple and a Zach Patterson sac fly. Like in the previous games, the Potters would never relinquish the lead again. They would end up scoring 4 runs in the bottom of the 2nd, capped off by a 2 RBI single from Daniel Susac. The Oaks would score 2 runs on a home run in the top of 4th inning and then get another run in the 5th to make it a 7-4 game. With the bases loaded and 2 outs in the bottom of the 6th inning, Trey Furrey would single home 2 runs to make it 9-4. The Potters bullpen would make it hold up in the end and the Potters won their 3rd in a row 8th in their last 9 games. Potters are clicking on all accounts on offense and defense in the last few games. The team is now 12-3 on the season, and looks to continue this strong play as the season goes on.
