Canova hands the Mudcats their first loss, Madison wins 4th in a row

The Dell Rapids Mudcats lost their first game of the season on Tuesday night, as the defending state champions from Canova beat Dells 6-5. 

Canvoa opened the scoring in the 2nd inning, with an RBI single from Jackson Remmer, and then added two more in the 4th. The Mudcats tied it up in the bottom of the 4th, only to see Canova take the lead back the next inning thanks to a Mudcats error and another hit from Remmer. A solo homer from Ty Hogland in the 8th inning brough Dells to within a run, but Kendall Gassman finished off the save in the 9th to seal the win. 

Gassman also had a team high 2 hits, with an RBI and a run scored. Derek Miller picked up the win. The Canova starter went 6 innings, and allowed just 2 earned runs on 9 hits. Hogland finished with 4 hits, 2 runs and 2 RBI. Carter Gullickson added 3 hits for Dell Rapids in the loss. 

The Mudcats are now 14-1 on the season, while Canova improved to 8-4. The Mudcats will travel to Flandreau on Thursday to take on the Blue Teal. You can hear that game on Jammin Country 103, Thursday night at 7:30pm.


The Madison Broncos extended their winning streak to four games on Tuesday, with a 1-0 walk-off win over Colman. Madison starter Aspen Dahl was outstanding on the mound, throwing a 2 hit shutout. Dahl walked just one batter, while striking out 13. 

Colman’s Carter Roach matched Dahl’s dominance, taking a scoreless game into the 9th. Heith Williams drew a leadoff walk to start the bottom of the 9th, and went to third on a Greg Biagi double. Matt Burpee was then intentionally walked, to load the bases for Trey Smith. Smith then singled to left to drive in the game’s only run.
