Travis Anderson started the game on the bump for Bear River High School's varsity baseball team on Wednesday in the Bruins first Pioneer Valley League contest. While he pitched a strong game the visiting Lincoln team's bats were just to much for the host team as Bear River fell 11-5.

The Bruins trailed 1-0 after one inning and 2-2 into the third when Lincoln broke it open scoring 4 unanswered runs on some timely hitting as well as a few costly errors. Anderson held the Fighting Zebras to a 6-2 score until he was replaced.

Lincoln who has not lost this season scored two more in the top of the 6th moving the score to 8-2. In the bottom half of the inning Anderson drove the ball over the center field fence which put some life into the home crowd. Bear River got the following two runners on board but the rally stalled when the next batter struck out and the following two popped out on the infield.

The low point of the league season opener was on a Bear River wild pitch with runners on second and third which resulted in two runs scoring.

Lincoln is a veteran team with 7 seniors and 2 sophomores in the starting line up.
