The Lincoln baseball and softball teams dealt Windsor different flavors of disappointing results during a doubleheader Tuesday at Eugene R. Schell Sports Complex.

In a rematch of the Kaysinger Conference Tournament championship game, Lincoln improved on its April 8 perfomance by eight runs, winning 12-5.

Paige Bybee recorded five hits for the Lady Cardinals and Paige Kahler reached base four times. Leading 8-2, Lincoln pushed its lead to 10 with a 4-run seventh.

Sloan Swearngin struck out eight and allowed seven hits. Devyn Williams claimed the hardest-hit delivery in the bottom of the seventh, sending a pitch into an empty parking spot past the left-field fence for three runs.

On the baseball diamond, Windsor snagged a 1-0 lead in the second with a Zach Berube RBI double. Tanner Golden doubled in another Greyhoumds run in the fifth.

Golden held Lincoln scoreless before surrendering the lead in the sixth. He finished with eight strikeouts.

Jackson Beaman came back from 0-2 to draw a bases-loaded walk for the go-ahead run.

Connor Spunaugle covered seven innings in 90 pitches. He scattered nine hits for two runs and struck out a pair.

Corbin Reese finished 3-for-4 at the plate, scoring and driving in a run.

Lincoln and Windsor are the respective No. 2 and 3 seeds in the Kaysinger Conference Baseball Tournament, opening Saturday, April 22. The Greyhounds host the winner between Otterville and Sacred Heart, while the Cardinals play Green Ridge or La Monte. Both teams need to win for a shot at a rematch in the semifinals.
