ADAMS — The Southland baseball team picked up its first win of the season when it beat Fillmore Central (0-1 overall, 0-1 Three Rivers) 12-2 in six innings in Adams Monday.

Southland sophomore Lukas Anderson allowed just one hit as he picked up his first win in his first career start.

“Lukas pitched pretty well for his first time pitching and Trent Reinartz did a pretty good job for his first time catching,” Southland head coach Scott Retterath said.
