Parker baseball splits with Watertown
WATERTOWN--Janesville Parker used steady pitching in the first game to earn a split in the opening nonconference doubleheader of the season here Saturday.
Three Vikings pitchers held the Goslings to one hit in the first game. Hunter Van Zandt and Collin Powers each had seven strikeouts.
Watertown scored four times in the bottom of the eighth after the Vikings had scored three times in the top of the inning in the second game.
“For being the first time outside, we had two hours on Wednesday, I was extremely impressed,” said Parker coach Brian Martin. “We turned two double plays in the second game and one in the first game.
“Defensively there were a lot of positives.”
The Vikings begin Big Eight play Tuesday against La Follette at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Riverside.
