LOCAL ROUNDUP: Vikings’ baseball wins opener

JACKSONVILLE — The Danville baseball team took things to the outdoors for only the second time this spring, and it seemed like there were in mid-season form.

Chase Thurston had six strikeouts with no walks as the Vikings defeated Springfield 2-1 in their season opener.

“It was nice to go out and see some action,” Danville coach Gary Gritton said. “We just went outside for a practice before today and it was good to see the pitchers challenging all of the hitters.”

Mike Vascura got the save, taking down Springfield in the seventh inning.

On offense, Chuckie Robinson provided all of it, hitting a 2-RBI triple in the third.

“Chuckie got the big hit and that is something that we are going to expect from him as this season goes on,” Gritton said.

The Vikings will stay in Jacksonville today to play Geneva.
