Kents Open with a Bang
The Fallasburg Cubs welcomed the Kents to their grounds at Fallasburg Park this past Saturday for the opening contest of the 2010 season. Fortunately, the Kent strikers were in mid-season form from the first frame on.
The Kents struck first and managed to tally a handful of aces to take an early lead, but the Cubs responded with several tallies of their own to keep pace before the Grand Rapidians pulled away in the second frame on their way to a comfortable 22-5 victory.
Several Kents enjoyed fine days as Charles Bliss and Mike DeJong provided steady defense and Dave Ringler struck safely in all six of his plate appearances, including several long strikes over the heads of the Cubs’ outfield scouts. Lance Brewer, Mike Coger and Scott Dailey also enjoyed fine efforts at the plate.
The Kents next contest will be the Silas K. Pierce Cup on June 5th at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids.
