Ryan Redfield (Updated)

By Kyle Gylsen - Wadena

The SportsCow.com Male Athlete of the Week is Ryan Redfield of the Wadena-Deer Creek baseball team.
 
Redfield had a pretty good day at the plate and then another on the mound in back-to-back recently for the Wolverines.
 
On Friday, April 20, in a 16-6 win over Bertha-Hewitt/Verndale, the Wolverines' senior went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a triple.  He drove in five runs and scored twice.
 
In his next game, on Tuesday, April 24, Redfield started on the mound in the first game of a Mid-State Conference doubleheader with Pequot Lakes and threw a no-hitter.  He pitched seven innings without giving up a hit, while walking two and striking out 11.
 
"Of all the games that I've played in or coached, it was the first no-hitter that I've been involved in," said Wolverines' head coach Kyle Dykhoff.  "So it was pretty special."
 
As of Thursday, May 3, Redfield was hitting .276 with eight RBI.  On the bump, he was 1-2 with a 2.69 ERA.  In 13 innings, he has 15 strikeouts with just four walks.
