The Hudson Valley Community College baseball team (24-8) lost to No. 6 Herkimer College (30-9) 9-2 and 6-5 on Tuesday afternoon. Had the Vikings took both games, they would have been outright Conference Champs, and if they had split, they would have been Co-Conference Champs.

The Vikings started out slow as Herkimer took the very first pitch of the game deep in game one, and then rattled off eight more runs before the Vikings got twDustin Conte (Hudson/Hudson)o RBIs from  late in the game.

In game two, Darren Conte (Hudson/Hudson) went 3-3 with three doubles and three RBIs to lead the Vikings. Connor McDonough (Lansingburgh/Lansingburgh) went 1-2 with an RBI, and Jeff Bink (Colonie/Colonie) went 1-2 with a double in the loss.

The Vikings wait to see who they will host on Saturday evening in the opening round of the Regional Tournament.
