Note: Gibraltar's baseball games against Oconto have been postponed until Monday. There will be no baseball broadcast on 105.1 The GOAT on Friday as a result.
The Gibraltar Vikings baseball team swung a big stick Thursday night as they beat Hilbert/Stockbridge 10-0 in five innings Thursday.
The Vikings put up four runs in the first and third innings to essentially put the game out of reach early. Brady Kita and Ryan Jorgenson led the way offensively for the Vikings with each registering a pair of hits while it was Cooper Cole driving in a pair. Max Maltby and Carl Burgess also drove in runs for the Vikings.
Jack Duffy sparkled on the mound for the Vikings, going five strong innings as he allowed no runs on three hits while striking out six. A Kevler took the loss for Hilbert/Stockbridge, giving up all 10 runs (nine earned) across 3 2/3 innings on eight hits and four walks.
The Vikings will face Oconto in a doubleheader on Friday afternoon beginning at 4 p.m. The Blue Devils will try to get a bad taste out of their mouth after losing the game and a share of the Packerland Conference championship Thursday night to Southern Door in an 11-9 decision. They came into the game with a conference leading 8-1 record in the Packerland.
Weather permitting, Tim Kowols and Paul Schmitt will have the call beginning at 4 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the first pitch at 4:30 p.m. on 105.1 The GOAT and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com.
