OTC Competes in Perham Wood Bat Tournament

By Craig Olson - Perham, MN

The Ottertail Central American Legion baseball team participated in the Perham Wood Bat Tournament over the weekend. 

OTC couldn’t keep up with Wadena-Deer Creek as they were shutout 8-0. Daxton Olson had a double in the second inning. 

Justin Dykhoff (7IP, 0R, 3H, 6K, 1BB) earned the win for WDC. 

Cole Kugler (7IP, 8R, 10H, 1BB) took the loss for Post 289. 

Coach Ryan Hendrickson complimented his pitcher saying, “Cole was great today versus a very powerful WDC team. Cole had a great mix of pitches and pitched a complete game with a bunch of defensive mistakes behind him. This was Cole’s first round outing since last year. He deserves a lot of credit for his performance. We roll with our defense and when we don’t defend well we put ourselves at a huge disadvantage as we typically don’t score enough runs to overcome.” 

Daxton Olson (5.2IP, 4R, 7H, 1K) earned the win over Perham as OTC posted a 6-4 victory over the host team. Brady Leuthner recorded the last two outs to earn the save for Post 289. Cian Beuhler went 2-for-3 at the plate. OTC drew nine walks and struck out just three times in the game. Brodey Rocholl led OTC on the basepaths with a pair of stolen bases. 

The Bulldogs scored four runs in the second inning with a two-out rally, highlighted by RBI singles from Jakob Bradsteen and Cole Kugler. 

“This was a great inning of being patient at the plate and then having clutch hitting from the top of the lineup,” said Hendrickson. “Our motto is to try for one big number in the game and then tgry to score at least one every inning. We were able to put up our big number right away putting the pressure on a really good Perham team.” 

Beuhler was 2-for-3 at the plate and OTC was able to draw nine walks. Rocholl stole two bases. 

In their final game of the tournament on Sunday Taconite defeated OTC 7-4. Kirby Lohse, Jakob Bradsteen and Bennet Cameron each collected one hit in the game.
