The Auburn Doubledays lost an early lead and couldn't complete a comeback, as they fell to the Lowell Spinners, 6-4, Tuesday at Edward A. LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Mass.

Auburn's Bryan Lippincott went 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored, while Jimmy Yezzo had a double and two RBI. Isaac Ballou added two hits and scored once.

The Doubledays took a one-run lead in the first inning, when Yezzo doubled to plate Lippincott.

But the lead was short lived. The Spinners tied the game in the bottom of the first, took the lead with two runs in the fourth, and scored three insurance runs in the fifth.

Auburn plated three runs in the seventh inning, but couldn't complete the comeback. Lippincott singled to bring in one run, another scored on an error and Yezzo brought in Lippincott with a sacrifice fly.

Doubledays starter Joel Barrientos lasted 4 1/3 innings, and allowed 10 hits and five earned runs in the loss. He walked one and struck out four.

John Simms gave up one hit, one walk and one earned run over 2 2/3 innings of relief, and Cory Bafidis tossed a hitless eighth inning.

Spinners reliever Jonathan Aro tossed four innings for the win. He surrendered four hits and two earned runs.

Auburn (13-29) plays the second game of the three-game series Wednesday.
