Wildcats Get Marooned

The Normal West Wildcats lost 10-2 in their home opener to the Moline Maroons.  The Wildcats fall to 2-1 on the season.

The Wildcats got down early, falling behind 8-0 after an inning and a half.  Matthew James’ home run to center field got the Wildcats on the board in the bottom of the 2nd.   The Wildcats hit the ball hard often, including hits in six of the seven innings, but couldn’t find the holes at the right times to score runs.

Dustin Detweiler held the Maroons scoreless through the middle of the game, including strikng out the side in the 4th, before giving up a pair of runs in the 6th inning.  The Wildcats scored their second run in the 7th when Alex Jefferson led off with a single, stole second and scored on a Wes Sery single.
