Cardinals Beat Vikings, 5-2, in AA Baseball

May 7, 2009 — The Cardinals continued to show that, to date, they are the team to beat in the Raphael Jackson Double-A baseball league, this time by knocking off the Vikings 5-2 Wednesday night at the D.C. Canegata baseball field.
Two Cardinals pitchers, Nick Carabella and David Samuel, combined to limit the powerful Vikings squad to just three hits in the time-shortened seven-inning contest, with Samuel getting the victory as the pitcher of record. Kenny Jackson went the distance for the Vikings, allowing five runs on seven hits while striking out 11 in a losing cause.
Batting first, the Vikings got on the board right away with two unearned runs. The Cardinals were equal to the task in the bottom of the inning knotting the game at two on Edwin Derweer’s two-run single.
The Cardinals pitching then took over the game holding the Vikings scoreless the rest of the way. Their offense would score the last runs of the game in the bottom of the second inning when they came up with three runs on an RBI single by Wayne Scotland and a two-run single off the bat of Norbert Pickering to lead 5-2 after two innings.
That three-run lead turned out to be the final margin of victory for the Cardinals as Jackson would then settle down to hold them scoreless for the rest of the game.
Top batters for the Cardinals were Pickering, 2 of 3 with two RBIs and Derweer, 1 of 1 with two RBIs. For the Vikings Joseph Brow and David Clark were 1 of 3.
