Vikings sweep Gators

Published 11:35 am Wednesday, April 6, 2011

A steely-eyed approach worked great for Beau Wallace and his Warren Central offense against Vicksburg Tuesday night.

Wallace struck out 12 and the Viking bats belted six extra-base hits to bash the Gators 9-1 at Bazinsky Field. The win completes a three-game season sweep for the Vikings (11-9, 5-2 Division 4-6A) over Vicksburg.

Team captain Wallace, who plays shortstop in addition to pitching, had his team ready.

“We come to play,” Wallace said after pitching a five-hit gem. “We were prepared. We wanted that three game sweep. Vicksburg is a good hitting team and in order to beat them, you have to hit your spots. We put it together.”

Gators coach Cody Zumbro said he wished his team could show the inner resolve Wallace brings to the game.
