Mike Percic made sure the Apollo-Ridge baseball team's runs-allowed average fell further toward zero Monday.

The Vikings, who allowed 20 runs in their first three games, kept Burrell off the basepaths during a 4-1 win in Section 3-AA. Percic, who pitched 6 13 innings, held Burrell (3-5, 0-4) to two hits and finished with five strikeout and four walks. Austin Laird stepped in to earn the save for Apollo-Ridge (2-3, 2-1).

Brandon Neal went 3 for 3 with an RBI and a run for the Vikings, and Loren Wingard doubled and drove in two runs.

Jason David doubled for the Bucs, who trailed 4-0 after three innings and scored their only run in the fifth.

Apollo-Ridge has held its last two opponents to one run.
