Monarchs and Wolves

Denison-Schleswig used a five-run third inning to post an 8-2 nonconference baseball victory over IKM-Manning on Monday night at Manilla.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak for D-S, which improved to one game over .500 at 13-12 overall.

With the loss, IKM-Manning fell to 6-14 overall after dropping its fifth game in seven outings.

The five-run third for D-S put the Monarchs up 7-1. IKM-Manning scored once in its half of the third to make it 7-2.

It stayed that way until D-S plated the game’s final run in the top of the seventh.

D-S outhit IKM-Manning, 8-5.

Jaden Petersen went 2-for-3 with one run batted in and two runs scored for D-S. Evan Turin also was 2-for-3 with two RBIs and one run. Jack Mendlik went 1-for-5 with one RBI and one run.

Dawson Dorhout was 1-for-4. Braiden Heiden finished 1-for-2 with one RBI and two runs and Nathan Gallup was 1-for-4 on the night.

Dorhout opened on the hill for D-S and picked up the win in six innings of work. He gave up two runs on five hits, struck out 10 and walked three.

Carter Wessel threw the seventh for the Monarchs.

All five of IKM-Manning’s hits were singles.

Hitting safely for the Wolves were Alex Lingle, Ethan Carter, Jarod Henkelman, Dane Blom and Nolan Ramsey.

D-S stranded a total of nine runners on the bases and stole times on the night. IKM-Manning, meanwhile, left six stranded.

"IKM-Manning’s pitchers kept our batters off-balanced early on in the game. They didn’t throw with a lot of velocity and we struggled with that in the first few innings," commented Denison-Schleswig coach Travis Wessel.

"We were able to score some runs in the third inning to break the game open. We got some help from IKM-Manning defensively, though," he added.

"Dorhout gave up a few scattered hits, but he found his groove and hit his spots later on. The guys played pretty good defense behind him, too."

"Defensively, we turned a couple of double plays, including one unassisted by Heiden at shortstop," Wessel said.
