The Hudson Valley Community College baseball team (14-10) split with SUNY Adirondack (11-6) on Saturday afternoon. The Vikings lost game one 6-5 but came back to take game two 11-7.

In the first game, the Vikings pulled ahead taking a 1-0 lead at the end of the first inning. Over the next three innings, Hudson Valley scored four runs to hold the lead over Adirondack.

Unfortunately, the Vikings couldn’t get anything going offensively in the final three innings, as they allowed the Timberwolves to score the winning run in the seventh.

Danny Coleman (Saratoga Springs/Saratoga Springs) led the Vikings going 2-3 at the plate, with one home run, a triple, a stolen base, and one RBI.

With the game tied 7-7, Hudson Valley went on a four-run rally in the seventh to secure the victory in game two.

Dominick Herald (CBA/Colonie) led the Vikings going 3-3 at the plate, with a double, two RBIs, and two runs. Coleman smashed his second home run of the day, and his eighth on the season putting him in first place for Region 3.
