Thursday the Glendale Vikings baseball team traveled to Bellwood-Antis, in what turned out to be a quick and easy game for the Blue Devils.

After just five innings the game was decided by the ten-run rule with Bellwood-Antis winning 11-0.  The game is a good bounce back game for the boys after dropping their last game to Mount Union.

“After this game, we have some momentum and confidence, which will really help in upcoming games,” said catcher Sawyer Kline.

Jordan McCracken had two hits, including a double, and five RBI.”

After a scoreless first inning, the Blue Devil bats came alive in the second, knocking in seven runs.  This big inning is where most of the damage was done, though B-A did add 4 more runs in the next two innings.

Jordan McCracken had two hits, including a double.  Jordan also led the team in RBIs with 5.

Sophomore right fielder Trent Walker was able to add two RBIs and a pair of doubles.

Offense was not the only thing going right for the Blue Devils.  Junior Nevin Wood displayed a spectacular pitching performance, giving up just one hit through five innings of work, in what turned out to be a complete game.  On top of this, Nevin was able to record over half of the outs with his arm, striking out 8.

“He pitched a great game and had the strikeout pitch working.  After that tough Mount Union loss it was great to see him pitching so well,” explained senior second baseman Noah Burns.

With the win Bellwood-Antis improves their record to 3-2, and Glendale is now 0-4.  The next game for the Blue Devils is today at 4:30 against the Bellefonte Red Raiders, in what should be a good game.
