After a four-run outburst in the second inning, Bartlett used an error-free defensive performance to hold on for its first win of the Cook Inlet Conference baseball season Saturday, beating East 5-3 at Mulcahy Stadium. Andrew Dickey pitched a complete seven innings for the Golden Bears, striking out five. Bobby Adams powered the offense, going 2 for 2 and driving in a run.
Luke and Matt Schnellbach led East, with Luke hitting a triple and scoring in the second inning and Matt knocking an RBI-double and scoring in the sixth.
Dimond 6, West 4

Kornegay struck out two batters and got the third on a popup to earn the save while Osborne took the victory. Kornegay led the Lynx at the plate, scoring twice and driving in two runs.
