Friday: Lincoln 18, Houston 7.

What went right: Lincoln answered Houston's two runs in top of the first inning at Haymarket Park, with 13 runs in the first two innings. The Saltdogs batted around in the first inning, a two-run home run from Edgar Corcino completing a seven-run first inning for Lincoln. The Saltdogs added six more runs in a second inning that featured a solo blast from Josh Altmann and a two-run shot from Yanio Perez. Altmann is one shy of tying the Saltdogs' single-season home run record after hitting his 26th. Perez, who added a two-run blast in the inning, was on cycle watch early with a single, home run and double in the first three innings. The Saltdogs hit five home runs, with David Vidal and Skyler Weber adding to the total.

What went wrong: Houston brought its deficit to 15-7 with four runs in the top half of the seventh. Aaron Takacs hit a three-run blast off Lincoln starter Ben Wereski. Wereski (3-3) allowed all seven Houston runs.

Up next: Lincoln has an off day Saturday before hosting the Apollos for two seven-inning games Sunday starting at 1:30 p.m.
