7 Norsemen squeeze Indy in SEK opener By JACK HARRIS Sun Sports Editor After a slow start in their Southeast Kansas League high school baseball opener here Saturday night the Parsons Vikings came out smelling like a Rose “I was sure glad to see us tie the game (at 3-3)” said Dustin Rose Vike sophomore whose three first-inning walks and third-inning error helped Independence build a 3-0 lead Rose however walked and scored the winning run in tne sixth inning as Parsons claimed a 4-3 victory The triumph in Marvel Park evened the hosts’ season record at 1-1 Brothers Brian and Dale Baldwin shut Indy down with seven innings of hitlcss relief Dale who worked the final three innings gained the victory squaring his mark at 1-1 Gerald Beardmore homcred to lead a modest three-hit Viking attack “It was good to win” said Charlie Nally Parsons coach “We fell behind but then we came back That’s what we’re gonna have to do Brian Baldwin threw well in middle relief — he struck out six — and Dale came in and blew it by ’em “We just gotta get our bats going I think we will The kids are just real anxious at bat now popping the ball up a lot When they settle down they’ll be okay” Scott Independence left-hander stymied Viking hitters most of the night with an assortment of off-speed pitches He also hit three batters and walked four lapses that proved costly “He threw our timing off” Nally said of Scott “We were out in front of the ball all night” Beardmore homered to Icft-ccntcr m the third to begin the comeback Scott’s control problems and Indy fielding miscues helped the Vikes tic the game in the fifth Rose then walked in the sixth stole second went to third when a throw to first by the catcher after a strikeout and raced home to score the winner on a wild pitch “I knew 1 could steal second” Rose said “I was running on the pitch before (the steal) but Mike (McGuire) fouled it off Then when the catcher didn’t throw the ball very hard to first (on the strikeout) I couldn’t believe it “Coach (Nally) told me to be ready to go (home) in case of a wild pitch When it got past the catcher I went” Parsons is slated to play three league games this week — Tuesday at Columbus here Thursday against Pittsburg and on Friday at Labette County of Altamont The Junior Vikings pounded out a 15-0 victory in three innings in the junior varsity game Erik Scmrad slammed a double and two

Saturday’s runaways “We kept hitting the ball We got the ball up in the wind a couple of times for wind-blown home runs and that seemed to take a lot out of them That was the difference in the game”

season-opening double loss) But Cheryl did a good job” Neosho County losers of four straight entering the twin bill erupted for 13 runs in the second frame of the five-inning opener In the second game
