PELICAN RAPIDS — In their first home games of the season, the Vikings struggled to find their groove as the Frazee Hornets captured both games of a doubleheader Thursday.
In game one, the Hornets were able to take advantage of the Vikings fielders as they took a 10-6 win.
Frazee got a leg up in the early innings, but Pelican Rapids was able to battle back in the fifth to trail by a run. The Hornets would respond the next inning with three runs of their own to put the game out of reach.
Devin Schell took the loss for the Vikings going six innings, allowing eight runs and fanning five.
The second game saw Frazee steal a five-inning affair 3-2.
The Hornets were able to score two runs in the second inning to gain an early lead.
The Vikings would respond in the third inning as Tanner Grahn knocked in Gauge Lee and tie the game up in the fourth on a Patrick Coleman RBI double.
The Hornets were able to regain the lead in the bottom half of the inning as Gunnar Hilde hit in Erik Moltzan. Frazee was able to hold the Vikings off the rest of the way to take the win.
The Vikings will look to rebound Friday as they welcome in the visiting Otter Tail Central Bulldogs for a 5 p.m. showdown.
