What went right: Lincoln continued its red-hot success in August at Haymarket Park, extending its home winning streak to seven games behind a seven-inning performance from starting pitcher Ricky Knapp. Lincoln also scored two seventh-inning runs that broke a 2-2 tie and gave Knapp his fourth win of the season. The Saltdogs, 7-0 at home in August, continued their small-ball mentality in the series as Ivan Marin recorded two base-hit bunts, including one that led to a Sioux Falls error that allowed Lincoln to take a 3-2 lead in the seventh. Christian Ibarra added a sacrifice fly that completed the two-run inning.
What went wrong: After Lincoln took a 1-0 lead after the first inning, Sioux Falls tied the game in the top of the second with a solo home run from Clint Coulter. The Canaries took a 2-1 lead in the fifth.
