Lincoln gets second career no-hitter in shutout victory

CANTON, May 15, 2023 – Pitcher Sammy Lincoln struck out nine and didn’t allow a hit as the Canton High baseball team closed out the North Central Connecticut Conference portion of their schedule with an 11-0 win over the East Windsor/CREC International Studies co-op team in five innings Monday at Bowdoin Field.

Lincoln, now 4-1 on the season, earned a piece of his second career no-hitter. He didn’t allow a hit and walked five in five innings of work. He threw 73 pitches.

A year ago, Lincoln threw 4.2 innings and Tanner Quinn threw 2.1 innings as they combined to throw a seven-inning no-hitter against Bolton on April 22. There have been just four no-hitters thrown by Canton pitchers since 1993.

Canton (10-7, 6-6 NCCC) got 12 hits in the victory including 2-for-3 performances from Rob Dlubac, Noah Asmar and Max Sedor, who each had a RBI. Jackson Sengal had a single and two RBI for the Warriors.
