Anchorage’s Lian Lincoln has been on a tear this season, especially over the last few weeks.

A recent hot streak has elevated the Macalester College baseball player to No. 2 on his team in hitting with a career-high .342 batting average.

The junior outfielder is currently riding a career-best nine-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games with the NCAA D3 team out of Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Lincoln, of South High fame, has gone 25-for-73 at the plate this season with one home run and seven RBIs in 23 games.

He hit .216 as a freshman and .333 as a sophomore before COVID canceled the season.

The former Cook Inlet Conference Player of the Year has raised his average 25 points during his hitting streak.
