Viroqua splits at Wisconsin Rapids

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. — A big hit and a clutch strikeout in the first game helped the Viroqua legion baseball team earn a doubleheader split against Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday.

Viroqua won the opener 2-1 and dropped Game 2 8-5.

In Game 1, Hunter Vikemyr hit a two-run single in the fourth inning to give Viroqua a 2-1 lead, and then he came in with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh and struck out the final batter to secure the win.

Vikemyr’s save preserved a great start from Aaron Huebsch, who went 6⅔ and allowed just four hits.

Wisconsin Rapids jumped out to a lead in the second game and didn’t let Viroqua (5-1) get back into it.
