The Vikings Boys Baseball team was unable to get the elusive hit they needed in a 2-0 loss to Warren JFK Eagles in their home opener on Wednesday. The Eagles pushed across two runs in the first inning and were able to pitch their way out of trouble on a variety of occasions. Jacob Smith pitched through the raindrops for the Vikings and was able to blank the Eagles over his final six innings of work.
The Vikings best opportunity was in the sixth inning where they were able to load the bases with nobody out. The golden opportunity was for naught as the Vikings were unable to put the ball in play to push a run across, striking out three straight times. The Vikings were also able to get the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning only to fall victim to a double play which stalled their comeback attempt.
With the loss, the Vikings’ losing skid continues to seven games after victories in their first two games. The Vikings look to get in the win column on Thursday evening at home versus Berkshire. Remember to follow the Athletic Department account on Twitter @Viking_AD for all of the latest updates.
