Viking Double Header
A big second inning in Friday’s first game against North Bend set the pace for the game. The Bulldogs managed to score 6 runs in the second and coach Tom Shinn said a couple of mental errors led to piling up pitches and Siuslaw couldn’t come up with any run support. Game one was 10-0 loss.
The second game was equally as tough but the Vikings hit the ball well according to Shinn, but the Bulldog defense kept coming up with them. Shinn also said that Evan Teter suffered a knee injury while covering first base. There is no additional word on the injury. Bulldogs won the second game 10-0 as well.
