WRIGHTSTOWN – The Wrightstown High School baseball team started strong on Saturday but could not maintain its early lead in a 10-4 loss at Denmark.

The Tigers jumped out to a 4-0 advantage in the second inning, scoring all their runs in the top half of the second frame.

This would be all the scoring Wrightstown could produce. The Vikings’ scoring touch, meanwhile, was far more steady.

In the bottom of the third inning, Denmark knotted the game up with four runs of its own.

Then Wrightstown surrendered two more runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to give the Vikings their first lead of the game.

That lead would ultimately be Denmark’s to keep, too, as it tacked on four more insurance runs in the bottom of the fifth while keeping the Tigers scoreless the remainder of the game.

To go along with 10 runs, Denmarkhad 10 hits while Wrightstown had five.

Four errors also hampered the Tigers’ cause, while the Vikings only had one mishap in the field.

Brandon Brick was the only Wrightstown batter to notch multiple hits on the day. Brick went 2 for 4, while scoring one run. Craig Nennig’s lone hit created the most real estate of any hit by the Tigers, producing his team’s only double.
