Vikings Pound Their Way to Top Jackson AA Baseball with 3 Weekend Victories

The Vikings finds themselves squarely in first place in the Raphael “tight shoes” Jackson AA baseball league after three wins over the weekend at the D.C. Canegata ballpark. On Friday they pummeled the Cobras, 13-2; thumped the Yankees, 9-4, on Saturday; then beat the Cobras again on Sunday, 9-7, in a makeup game.

In the only game over the weekend not involving the Vikings, the Yankees stifled the 40 Plus Hurricanes, 15-5, on Sunday.

Malik Mitchel got the win on the hill for the Vikes and Jack Daniel got the loss. Top batter for the winners was Mark Knight who was 2 for 4. Grayson Pyland was 2 for 3 for the Vikings.
