LANCASTER - Even with a couple of days to go, it has already been a big week for Lincoln County baseball. The Patriots shuffled their lineup, swept the two games their coach said they had to win and matched their longest winning streak of the season, all in the span of three days and in the wake of their worst loss of the season. Their latest achievement was a 4-1 victory over Garrard County on Thursday that kept them in the running for the top seed in their district tournament. “We had to have these,” Lincoln coach Brad McNew said.
