Vikings rally to tighten league standings
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The Irvington Vikings rallied in the bottom of theÊseventh inning in their May 7, 2014 meeting with the Moreau Mariners to move them into a tie with the Washington Huskies at 7-4 for second place in Mission Valley Athletic League baseball. It wasnÕt an easy day for the Vikings as both teams put on impressive batting performances.
The day began well for the Mariners who put four runs on the scoreboard in the first inning. Dylan Mackin and Rian Goulart teamed up to put the Mariners in a great position to take it all following with two more runs in the fourth. But, the Vikings slowly fought their way back putting their first run on the scoreboard in the second inning and following with another in the fourth and again in the fifth. The tide changed to favor the Vikings and the seventh inning onslaught was just too much; Mariner defense was unable to hold them off. Final score: Irvington 7, Moreau Catholic 6.
