Lincoln Pitches Three Scoreless in B Game

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Right-hander Brad Lincoln tossed three scoreless frames against the Minnesota Twins ‘B’ lineup in the 3-2 win in Fort Myers on Sunday.

Lincoln gave up just one hits with a walk and a strikeout over his three innings.

“From my last outing, my last outing was pretty shaky for me,” Lincoln said. “To be able to bounce back is always a good thing for the confidence level. To just go out there, get my work in, and be ready for the next one. “

Lincoln said he threw 44 pitches over his three inning outing and used all of his pitches.

“Yes,  everything was working,” Lincoln said. “I was able to attack the zone, get ahead, get strike one and be able to let my defense work for me.”

On Monday, Lincoln was scratched from his outing due to right calf tightness. Lincoln has battled the discomfort since the beginning of spring training, but said he felt fine after getting some days off.

“I didn’t miss that much,” Lincoln said. “I think it was five days, I missed a rotation, but I feel good. I plan on making the next one. It’s all better now.”
