CONRAD — Lynnville-Sully’s baseball team outlasted host BCLUW on Thursday in a non-conference game. The Hawks held on for a 9-7 road win.

The Hawks only had two hits in the game. They made the most of eight walks issued by BCLUW pitchers and 11 stolen bases.

Eighth-grader Conner Maston got the win as he pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on three hits and one walk. He struck out six.

Also on the mound for the Hawks were junior Kinnick McFarland and sophomore Payton Van Wyk. McFarland threw two innings, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks and had three strikeouts. Van Wyk worked 1 1/3 innings, walking one and striking out three batters.

Lynnville-Sully was behind 1-0 when it scored five runs in the third inning. The Hawks led 5-3 after three innings then added single runs in the fourth and fifth frames.

Up 9-4, the Hawks stopped a Comet rally in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Comets plated three runs before the Hawks ended the rally.

Senior Evan Squires and junior Skyler Sanders each had a single for Lynnville-Sully. Sanders was credited with five of the team’s 11 stolen bases.

Rain washed out Lynnville-Sully’s South Iowa Cedar League game on Friday at Class 1A No. 10 HLV in Victor. The Hawks (8-11) take a 5-7 SICL mark into Monday’s conference game against BGM. The game is at 6 p.m. in Brooklyn.
