Lions drop two against West
by Brandon Leonard Correspondent · July 6th, 2017

The Linn-Mar baseball squad knew they would have their hands full last Friday night. The Lions hit the road for a double-header against the third-ranked Iowa City West Trojans and suffered a pair of losses, one by a 2-0 final score and one by a 10-2 tally. The losses dropped Linn-Mar back below .500 with a record of 14-16 overall.

Josh Strauss took the loss on the mound for the Lions, giving up both runs in the 2-0 loss while only allowing three hits. Josh Gassmann went 2-for-2 at the plate while Reese Phillips went 2-for-3.

In the 10-2 loss, Kirby Kerr pitched three and one-third innings and was handed the loss. Ben Diestler and Aaron Nibaur each drove in one run apiece to help the Lion cause.

Linn-Mar will look to right the ship this week as they are scheduled for double-headers against Waterloo East and Cedar Falls.
