JANESVILLE—Janesville Parker can be excused for coming out a bit flat in its nonconference baseball game Friday afternoon against visiting Evansville.

With a Big Eight Conference title game upcoming Tuesday against Sun Prairie, the Vikings fell behind the Blue Devils 1-0 in the first inning before rolling to a 9-1 victory.

The Vikings (19-4) tied the game in the bottom half of the first and took control with five runs in the second and two more in the third.

“We had good at-bats, ran the bases well and played great defense,” Parker coach Brian Martin said. “Everybody got in.”

Leadoff hitter Cullen Osmond doubled and singled, scored four times, drove in a run and stole a base. Connor Osmond doubled and tripled, scored twice and drove in a run.

Parker plays Sun Prairie at Riverside Park at approximately 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The game will be played after the Middleton-Janesville Craig game is completed, which begins at 4 p.m.

Both Parker and Sun Prairie are 14-2 in the conference.
