The New York Mills Millers and Dent Wildcats met in Mills on Sunday in what is becoming a heated rivalry. In a game which saw tempers flair on both sides the Millers beat Dent 11-8 at Russ Jacobson Field.

NY Mills took a 2-0 lead when Brent Weller scored on a Tony Meech sac fly in the first inning, and in the second Nick Ostlie scored on an Ernie Kawlewski single.

Dent scored five runs in the fourth inning for a 5-2 lead. Mills then scored two runs in the bottom of the inning to get within one run. The fourth inning ended with a play at the plate when the Millers' Brent Weller was tagged out by Dent catcher Jason Hofmann. Some extra contact followed the play and both benches cleared. Order was quickly restored and no players were ejected.

In the top half of the inning, hard-throwing Mills pitcher Tony Meech threw a couple high and tight pitches to Isaac Stoll to lead off the fifth inning. Stoll then hit a single and later scored on a triple by Brock Collins, who later scored to give the Wildcats a 7-4 lead.

New York Mills was not done though. In the sixth inning the Millers scored four runs to take an 8-7 lead.
