Tuesday afternoon against Hunter, the Vikings pulled to within a tie for the No. 3 spot by beating the Wolverines 8-0.
Aiding the Vikings on the mound that day was Parker Taggart, who pitched a complete game two-hitter to all but silence the bats of Hunter. After giving up a base hit in the first inning, Taggart didn’t allow another base runner until the top the seventh inning when Dimitri Saliba hit a double to center field.
Saliba finished with the only two Hunter hits in the ball game.
Between Saliba’s base hits, however, Taggart’s pitching performance was flawless. After getting out of a first-inning jam, Taggart retired the next 17 hitters to step to the plate while pitching to a three-ball count only twice. On both occasions he retired the hitter via strike out and ground out. In the end Taggart finished his complete game performance by striking out three hitters and walking none.
