Kent moves to top of leaderboards

Saturday's NWL Pitcher of the Night is Rochester southpaw Matt Kent, a sophomore from Texas A&M. Kent carried the Honkers to a fifth straight win, the longest streak of the season for Rochester as they edged a little closer to the top of the division. 

Kent lowered his season ERA to a NWL-leading 2.01 ERA as he gave up just one run over eight strong innings. He struck out five to tie with St. Cloud's Reese Gregory for the lead in strikeouts with 57. Kent improved to 3-3 and turned in his fifth start of the season of over seven innings.
