The Gibraltar Vikings broke out of their nearly week-long skid with two wins against Peshtigo on Monday, winning the games 9-0 and 9-1.
In game one, Bennett Isaacson for Gibraltar and Landon Beyer for Peshtigo looked destined for a duel with both pitchers holding their opponents scoreless through two. While Isaacson held strong for four more innings of scoreless ball, the Vikings got to Beyer in the third with three runs thanks in part to a hit by Brady Kita and a pair of errors. The Vikings would earn their runs in the fourth inning with Rylan Caldecott tripling home one run and scoring on a throwing error and Aaron Brey hitting a two-run homer to cap off a four-run inning. A collection hit batsmen and an RBI sacrifice fly by Caldecott capped off the scoring for the Vikings. Kita had three hits to lead the Vikings offensively while Isaacson kept the Bulldogs under wraps with six strikeouts.
In game two, it was more of a bullpen game for the Vikings as they balanced the wants of Monday and the needs of Tuesday's doubleheader at Sturgeon Bay and Friday's twin bill at Oconto. The Vikings would not wait as long in the second contest, scoring three runs in the second inning as Hayden Reetz and Noah Greene helped drive in runners. The Bulldogs would answer with their only run of the day when Caleb Proft doubled home Canon Bickel to make it 3-1 after two innings. The Vikings would tack on two runs in the fourth, three in the sixth, and a final tally in the seventh inning. Caldecott had three hits while Brey and Carl Burgess each added two hits. The Vikings took advantage of six Bulldogs errors to extend innings, including in two plate appearances by Kita. Isaacson and Jack Duffy appeared in both games while Brey, Aiden Purinton, and Kita entered the game as pitchers in the second game.
The Vikings are back in action on Tuesday when they play Sturgeon Bay for a twin bill beginning at 4:30 p.m.
