— Janesville Parker High’s baseball team followed the script perfectly Saturday afternoon.

The Vikings used singles, stolen bases and bunts to earn a 3-1 victory over visiting Madison West in Big Eight Conference action.

“We played like I think we should,” Parker coach Brian Martin said. “We played good defense. Their one run came on an overthrow, but otherwise we were fine.

“Our pitching was OK. We still walked five guys, but we were able to get out of it.”

Will Theisen ignited the Viking offense, scoring the first two runs.

Both times—in the first and the sixth innings—Theisen singled and stole second. In the first inning, he advanced to third on a passed ball and scored on an error. In the sixth, he scored on Jake Welch’s double.

Welch took third on a ground out and scored on Aric Bobzien’s suicide squeeze.

The Vikings, 2-3 overall and in the Big Eight, play at Verona on Tuesday.
