The Lincoln Saltdogs dropped two games out of three to Shreveport-Bossier losing 5-2 on Wednesday at Haymarket Park. Lincoln starter John James (4-2) gave up a double, a walk, a wild pitch, a two-run single and a two-run home run all after one out in a four-run fourth inning.
Lincoln had tied the game at one in the third inning on a solo home run by Albenis Machado. Gavin Dickey hit an RBI single in the seventh, but the Saltdogs could get no closer the rest of the night. After an off-day Thursday, Lincoln heads to St. Paul for a three-game series that begins Friday night at 7:05. Right-hander Angel Castro is scheduled to take the mound for the Saltdogs.
