After shutout loss, Vikings get back to business
Two days after getting hit with a string of goose eggs, St. Laurence cooked that goose.
The Vikings’ high-powered offense has often seemed unstoppable this spring, but De La Salle found a way to grind it to a halt last Thursday. Behind pitcher Ivan Guzman, the Meteors stunned St. Laurence — and probably a number of prep baseball fans — by notching a 4-0 shutout in a Chicago Catholic League crossover matchup.
The loss came right after the Vikings had crushed both St. Ignatius (12-0) and Fenwick (15-0) in two other league clashes, which simply added to its shocking nature.
“We’ve been playing a month and generating a lot of runs, but we told our guys, ‘It really isn’t going to be this easy all the time,’” St. Laurence coach Pete Lotus said. “I think not being in [many] close games hurt us on Thursday.”
