Vikings show power at the plate

Submitted By Mike Heightchew

The Irvington Vikings baseball team put on a great hitting display against the American Eagles on April 30th as they scored seven runs on 10 well-timed hits. Final score: Vikings 7, Eagles 0. They opened up the game in the third inning as they scored their first three runs of the game and never looked back, adding another run in the fourth inning, closing the door in the fifth when they tacked on an additional three runs.

A team effort, six of the starting Vikings reached base with a hit; Catcher Jake Doty and Cameron Cabigas with two hits each. At the end of the day, the Viking team batting average was a hefty .370. Viking pitcher Michael Newman added a standout performance on the mound as well as his fast ball and change up were working; he only give up one hit to Eagle David Shan.

As Mission Valley Athletic League baseball winds down to its final weeks, this type of powerful performance could elevate the Vikings in close league competition.
