The Hudson Valley Community College baseball team (3-11) lost both games of a double-header to Southeastern Community College (17-9) on Thursday, March 24. The Vikings fell 5-2 in game one, and then were slightly edged 7-6 in game two.

Timothy Murdick (Averill Park/East Greenbush) pitched a strong first game on the mound, recording 10 strikeouts, but couldn't get enough run support for the win. The Vikings came up a little short in game two. Nick Papas (Maple Hill/Castleton) went 2-4 with two RBIs and Sean Geisel (Guilderland/Guilderland) went 1-4 with two RBIs.

The Vikings travel back up north tomorrow, stopping in Baltimore, Maryland to take on Baltimore City Community College at 3 p.m.
