Sullivan powers Bulldogs past Vikings

Two innings later, he'd challenge Sullivan again. And once again, he'd regret it.

Dustin Kervin led off the third inning with a walk and Pierce Cadenhead laid down a sacrifice bunt, but a dropped throw at first base put runners on the corners. Sullivan then jumped on a inside fastball and drove the offering off the left field wall, narrowly missing his second homer of the night but driving in the pair to stake the Bulldogs to a 3-0 lead.

Given an extra out in the fifth, the Vikings would have an answer on the bat of Jones.

Joe Guidry reached on an errant throw from shortstop Corey Armstrong to lead off the frame, but Gillis bounced back by getting Casey Wehrhahn to fly out to left before striking out David Mayberry. Darren Hasch kept the inning alive with a double to left center to put two men in scoring position for Jones, who laced a two-run double just inside the right field line.

"I really think a lot of Fort Walton Beach," coach Gillis said. "They have a lot of great players and I really think it's going to be a war in the district. We just have to take it one game at a time."
