Vikings sweep cross town rival All Saints
Fort Worth, TX - As they continue to improve and seek better results as the first rotation of district play came to an end, the Vikings could not have asked for better results then sweeping the visitors from All Saints. The Vikings won the first game 10-6 behind an offensive onslaught led by senior Robert Nagid. The second game of the two game series featured more pitching than offense as the Vikings won 6-1.
Game one featured the offensive output the Vikings have been seeking all season long. The Vikings scored early and often throughout the contest with a consistent offensive approach.
“We have been working on our offensive techniques and fundamentals during batting practice,” head coach Joe Weik said. “Offense is all about consistency in our approach and not trying to do too much at the plate. Take good swings and hit the ball where it's pitched and usually good things will happen.”
Nagid led the Vikings attack going 3-4 with two RBIs, two runs scored as well as a stolen base. Senior Trey Rowe got the win on the mound, allowing no runs over two plus innings of work.
Game two, Nate Hall was the story both on the mound as well as at the plate. Hall was dominant, pitching five plus innings, striking out seven while allowing only two hits.
In the batters box, Hall was equally impressive, finishing with three hits in four at bats, knocking in two runs.
“What a great day for Nate Hall, he was impressive!” head coach Weik stated.
The Vikings take on Paschal in a non-district matchup Saturday, before returning to district play next Thursday and Friday at home versus Liberty Christian.
