The NAIA Unaffiliated Baseball Tournament started Wednesday, and the first game was a barnburner. The Valley City State University Vikings took on the Dakota State Trojans. The Trojans came into the tournament seeded #5, and Vikings #4.
The morning game began quietly. A strong wind came in from right field, but had little affect on hitters later in the game. The Trojans scored once in the second inning, and again in the fourth. The Vikings put a run on the board in the bottom of the fourth, and then in the fifth, all heck broke loose with the bats.
