The Vikings were led by Chris Stevens' hitting. Stevens went 3-4 including a solo home run in the 4th. The Vikings used a 3-run, 2 out rally in the 7th inning to cut the lead down to 2 but the Oilmen got those runs back in the bottom of the 8th.

Joshua Negele improved to 1-0, allowing four runs over seven innings. Negele also struck out six, walked one and gave up nine hits.

Jason Ziegler was charged with his first loss of the year. He allowed six runs in five innings, walked four and struck out seven. He also had three balks. The Vikings have now lost four in a row and will look to get back on the winning side as they head to Rockford to take on the Foresters at 7 o'clock.
