The Gibraltar Vikings baseball will return to the regional final on Wednesday after beating Sevastopol 9-2 in Fish Creek Tuesday evening.
The Pioneers took the early 2-0 lead when Carter Bieri went home on a throwing error in the first inning and Tom Junion scored an RBI groundout in the second inning. Gibraltar's Sam Lindenberg settled in after that, allowing just two hits and no runs while striking out seven Pioneers while pitching a complete game.
The Vikings' bats came alive in the second inning when Kevin Krauel scored on a knock and scored three more times in the third to take control of the game for good. Lindenberg helped his own cause with an RBI in the fourth inning and scored on a Cooper Cole triple in the sixth inning. Krauel registered three hits while Hayden Reetz reached base three times.
