'Cats End Season Streaking

After a shake-up in the Countryside, Dent began its 2014 season looking to build on their 2-2 2013 region record.  Dent would have a very up-and-down season where they had some highs and some lows.  Dent would finish the season with a 6-6 league record and an 11-9 overall record.  They would also reclaim the annual 4th of July rivalry from the Perham Pirates and finish 2nd in the DL Angels Tournament in June.  Highlights from the 2014 regular season also include a 13-1 drubbing of the Midway Snurdbirds and a walk-off homerun by Luke Burgau v. Crookston.  Dent begins its quest for back-to-back region 16C berths streaking.  They will ride their 4-game winning streak to Pelican Rapids on Friday to begin a best-of-3 series which will determine who will play Fergus Falls for the 2014 Countryside crown.  The game is scheduled for a 7:30 pm first pitch.  Come on out and cheer on your Dent Wildcats towards another region ticket.

Wildcats Finish Season with "W"

Amid the dense, humid air, Dent wrapped up the 2014 regular season by playing the Bluffton Braves on Saturday.  Dent would open up the scoring in the 2nd inning when Brady Stoll would walk, steal 2nd base, and score on an RBI double by Brock Collins.  The 1-0 lead would hold up until the top of the 6th.  The Braves would use 2 walks and 1 clutch hit to take a temporary 2-1 lead over the Wildcats.  That lead would not last very long because Dent would come right back in their half of the 6th inning and bat 10 guys to score 4 runs.  In the inning the Wildcats would collect 2 hits, 4 walks, and 1 HBP to take a 5-2 lead.  They would tack on 2 more insurance runs in the 7th inning on a 2-RBI double by Jaden Meyer.  Those runs would close out the scoring for the day and secure the 7-2 victory for the Wildcats.

 

Dent was led at the plate by Andy Kratzke who ended the day 3 for 4 with a 2B, scored 2 runs, 1 walk, and 1 RBI.  In addition, Brock Collins and Jaden Meyer added 2 hits a-piece to the Wildcats effort.  On the mound, Jeff Ronning collected the win in a split effort.  He started and went the first 4 innings and came back in for 2 innings of relief.  Ronning did not yield a run in his 6 innings of work while striking out 5 batters.  Dylan Ellingson made his long awaited debut on the bump going 1 shutout inning.

Dent Collects Forfeit For 3rd Straight Year

Scheduled for the last Friday night game of the regular season, the Dent Wildcats were slated to host the Henning Giants at 7:30 pm.  But for the 3rd straight year Henning could not get enough players to field a team so they had to forfeit.  The Wildcats will conclude the 2014 regular season on Saturday when they play Bluffton at home during the annual Dent Days Festival.  Come on out to Jake Wolford Field for a 1:30 pm start.

Dent Holds on to 4th Win

After 3 straight years of losing to their rivals, the Perham Pirates, in the annual 4th of July game, the Dent Wildcats were primed and prepared to reclaim the rivalry game.  Even after a rules violation barred the Pirates from playoff in 2014, they were prepared to play spoiler all season.  The 2 teams exchanged runs 2nd and 3rd innings as the pitchers settled into the game.  But Dent would not allow the Pirates to relax; the Wildcats would bat 8 guys in the 4th inning using multiple hits, multiple walks, and multiple sacrifices to push 3 runs across and take a 5-2 lead.  In the top fo the 5th, Dent would increase the distance between themselves and the Pirates when Isaac Stoll would drive a double to the gap in right-center and plate 2 runs to take a 7-2 lead as the game moved into the final 3 innings.  But in the 7th, the Dent defense would let them down as they surrendered 2 unearned runs (4 overall) in the 7th inning.  The Wildcats would turn to the bullpen who would shut the door on the Pirates and secure the 7-6 victory for starter Matt Richter.

 

Dent was led by Isaac Stoll who finished the day 4 for 5 with 1 run scored, 1 2B, 1 SB, 1 walk, and 3 RBI's.  In addition, Brock Collins and Brandon Fritz would contribute 2 hits a piece to the Wildcats effort.  Dent starter Matt Richter provided another strong outing giving the Wildcats 7 good innings, walking only 1, and striking out 4.  The Wildcats will start the final week of the regular season as they face the Henning Giants on Friday at 7:30 pm in Dent.
