9 days later, Vikings finally finish off Lions

LOOGOOTEE — It took nine days, but Barr-Reeve and Loogootee finally finished its annual baseball rivalry game.

The Vikings (11-4) finished off a 3-1 victory over the Lions (10-9) Thursday night at Les Page Field — a game that was suspended due to rain on April 29 after three and a half innings.

There were some position changes on both sides and a pitching change for Loogootee, but no change on the mound for Barr-Reeve coach Nathan Lester. Trevor Yoder threw a complete game to earn his fourth win of the year. Yoder struck out two, while scattering five hits and allowing just one run to give the Vikings their fourth win in a row.

“Trevor’s been throwing the ball pretty well,” said Barr-Reeve coach Nathan Lester. “For a young guy he throws the ball pretty well — he makes a few mistakes here and there, but at the same time he’s able to overcome his mistakes. I’ve seen maturity from the time that he’s started this year early on to now. He’s pitched himself out of some jams and seems to stay pretty composed. I’m pleased with his progress.”

There couldn’t be a bigger contrast in weather between April 29 and Thursday afternoon. The initial game had strong winds combined with temperatures in the high 40s and consistent rain, but the final four innings got temperatures in the high 80s with some wind.

The two teams both went scoreless in the first two innings, but in the third, all the four runs for the game were scored. The Vikings scored three runs on two hits in the top of the third off starting pitcher Gabe Nolley. Barr-Reeve scored on a fielders choice with the bases loaded off the bat of Cain Miller, an RBI single from Logan and James and produced its third run on a double steal with runners at the corners. Loogootee added a run in the bottom of the inning on a Hayden Bell RBI single to drive in Gage Harder.
