The Decorah baseball team (15-8, 9-5 NEIC) now has a six-game win streak going, having swept Waukon (3-10, 1-10 NEIC) in a double header Tuesday night.
In the first contest, the Vikings won 3-0. Decorah posted a run in each of the first, third and fourth innings.
Decorah utilized its seven hits. Kyle Kane had two of them, with an RBI. Bryton Meyer also had two hits. Jake Hovden, Austin Asbacher and Dustin Cary all had one.
Collin Nimrod pitched a nearly-perfect game. He didn’t give up a single hit in seven innings, striking out nine and walking just one. He needed just 59 pitches to go all seven frames.
“Collin really was sharp. Both his pitches were well-located. He stayed ahead of the batters in the count and really did a nice job of working the zone and keeping, for the most part, their batters off-balance,” said Head Coach Dennis Olejniczak. He also was complimentary of the defense behind Nimrod.
