— Janesville Parker did something it rarely does wrong, but this time it cost the Vikings big time in Big Eight Conference baseball here Tuesday.

Parker High misplayed an outfield fly ball with two outs in the top of seventh that allowed Madison East to score two runs and gain a 6-4 victory over the Vikings


“We make that play 9.9 times out of 10,” Parker coach Brian Martin said after his team fell to 3-4 in the Big Eight. “We usually catch it, but we missed it, and that was the difference in the game.’’


Parker played from behind, erasing 2-1 and 3-1 deficits before allowing East to grab second place in the Big Eight with a 4-2 record.


The Vikings scored two runs on a B.J. Scharenbroch RBI single and a David Jacobson sacrifice fly in the to tie the game 3-3. Jacobson ripped an RBI double in the second inning for Parker’s first run.


In the Parker fifth inning, Matt Beyer had an RBI triple after Kelly Silha’s double to put Parker ahead 4-3.


East scored a run in the sixth to tie and scored twice in the seventh on the Parker error to take the lead for good.


Parker travels to Madison La Follette on Thursday.
