Despite the loss, the Vikings' Jim Tucker dominated the Foresters' batters, giving up one earned run and striking out five in 5.2 innings of work. Offensively, the Vikings had six hits with Elliott Armstrong going 2 for 3 with one run scored. Chris Stevens also had a solid game as he went 2 for 3 as well. Their only RBI came from Shane Brown in the fifth inning.

The Vikings will look to bounce back on Thursday when they head to Benedictine Stadium to take on the DuPage County Hounds.
