Dickson back as Washington cruises 

O’Koyea Dickson returned to the lineup for his first game of the season, going 3-for-4 with three RBIs as Washington beat Lincoln 13-6 in an Academic Athletic Association baseball game at West Sunset Park.

Eagles left-hander Kevin Shue overcame an error-plagued five-run second inning to pick up his first win in three decisions this year.

Washington coach Rob Fung said Shue’s consistency belies his 1-2 record.

"He battled well," Fung said. "If we record more runs for him and played better catch earlier in the season, he could [be] undefeated."

Dickson, a first-team All-AAA selection last year, made his presence felt after sitting out with a strained oblique. The junior slugger’s day included a two-run triple in the top of the seventh that looked like it went about 350 feet and would have been out if West Sunset had a left-field wall.

"We’re happy to get Dickson back today," Fung said. "[He] changes our whole lineup."

Mission 14, O’Connell 13 (8 innings)

Dylan Murray singled, stole second and third and scored on a passed ball in the top of the eighth inning to provide the winning run as the Bears (2-3) erased a seven-run deficit to beat the Boilermakers (1-4).

Mission scored 11 runs in the top of the fifth inning to go ahead 13-9, led by Mark Radford’s three-run double. Radford and teammate David Osborne each went 3-for-4, with Osborne homering and driving in three runs.

Carlos Turcios (1-1) battled for seven innings for the Bears to earn the win, while IanConnor earned the save.
