DeJong boosts Woodchucks over .500
After starting the season poorly, Wisconsin has turned it around and thanks to the Northwoods League Player of the Night Paul DeJong (Illinois State), won their fourth straight. The Woodchucks fought off a late Duluth rally to win, 9-6.
DeJong was fundamental for the team's success as he drove in five runs, four of which came on a grand slam. He finished 2-4 with two runs and a double as well.
He's now hitting .296 on the season with five home runs (tied for first in the league) and 14 RBIs (tied for second) over 13 games.
