The Northview B and C baseball teams earned a pair of victories over rival West Vigo on Monday evening.
The Knights earned a 7-1 win in the B game as J.J. Smerdel went the distance, allowing three hits, striking out eight Vikings and walking just one. He also had a pair of hits, including a double and two RBIs while scoring two runs. Nick Lancaster added a double and Alex Smith contributed a pair of hits for the victorious Knights. Curtis Peters also had one hit.
"Defensively, we still have a few things that we are working towards fixing. JJ did a tremendous job tonight against a traditional rival," commented coach Scott McDonald. "He had all of his pitches working and really kept them off balance."
In the C game, the Knights got a homer from Kyle Pestoff and doubles from Peters, Adam Clark, Heath Wells and Brock Lawson in a 10-8 victory.
The B squad (2-0) will take to the road with the varsity squad on Wednesday for a 5 p.m. contest with Shakamak.
