The Vikings top of the lineup, hitters 2-4, combined to go 6-for-12 and scored all three runs for Hudson Valley. Jackson Wenstrom (Mandan, N.D./Mandan) has been the Vikings best hitter in the early season as he collected two hits in his fourth straight game and is currently hitting .450 in the Vikings first five games.

On the mound, Clayton Patrick (W, 1-0) (Schuylerville/Schuylerville) had an amazing outing for the Vikings.

Joe Duncan (S,1) (Valley Falls/Hoosic Valley) relieved Patrick in the seventh and tossed a hitless inning for his first save of the season.
The Vikings second game against Frederick was canceled to do rain in the forecast.
