The Flyers are 6-1 in one-run games, and hope to make a run to a Class 4 state championship.
The target for the Lindbergh baseball team is clear this season, and that is to win the Class 4 state championship in Springfield, Mo. during the first weekend in June. After winning eight of their past nine games, the Flyers certainly look poised to remain a title contender deep into the 2011 baseball season. Lindbergh defeated Eureka on Thursday night, 6-5, to improve to 10-3. “We were tested right away this season, and that’s the way you want it to be. You want that adversity, and it helps give you a sense of how to set your lineup for later in the season,” Lindbergh coach Darin Scott said.

The Flyers win their third straight baseball game with a 15-5 win over the Lions.
After jumping out to a commanding 5-0 lead in the second inning against Lindbergh, University City appeared to be on its way to back-to-back wins. That was until the Flyers battled back in the bottom of the second inning as Lindbergh tied the game up at 5, en route to a 15-5 win over the Lions. One of the keys to Lindbergh’s (5-2, 2-0 Suburban West) turnaround in the second inning was a string of two-out hits that punished University City, according to Flyers head coach Darin Scott. “The main thing is that we were down 5-0 in the second inning and to come right back and get as many two out hits as we did, it’s very demoralizing for your opponent,” Scott said. “U-City’s got a nice ball club and for us to come out and get a big win like this…
