LU loses no-hitter, game in ninth

MARYVILLE — The Lincoln baseball team ended its season with an 8-40 record after dropping both halves of a doubleheader Sunday at Northwest Missouri State.

The second game was especially painful for the Blue Tigers, as Blake Jones had a no-hitter through 81⁄3 innings, only to lose 1-0 after two singles in the bottom of the ninth.

Jones (1-9) struck out seven and walked just two in his gem.

In the opener, Northwest used a six-run fifth inning to post a 10-2 win.

The Blue Tigers ended up with a mark of 8-31 in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. Northwest ended the season at 17-32 overall and 16-23 in the MIAA.
