Postgame thoughts – April 30, 2011

Clinton 5, Rattlers 2
Boxscore | Game story

  • What do ya know? There CAN be games played two days in a row in Wisconsin.
  • Jimmy Nelson with a 13:1 GO/AO ratio. That’s very good.  It will pay off for him.
  • The Rattlers were 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left 13 runners on base.
  • Twelve hits for the Rattlers. Eight of them came with two outs.  Only one hit came at the start of an inning.
  • I don’t know what happened on that play at the plate in the top of the 7th. I went back and checked the video and it appeared that Roberts looked up as if the ball was hit in the air. It did not look like he was expecting a throw from Hawn for the play at the plate.  It was weird.
  • The team went 2-4 in the six games on the homestand.
  • On to the QC and Beloit for a six road trip.

Speaking of the Quad Cities series, here are the scheduled pitching matchups and the game times:

SUN: RHP Dan Britt v. LHP Kevin Siegrist @5:00pm
MON: RHP Tyler Thornburg v. RHP Zach Russell @11:00am
TUE: RHP Austin Ross v. RHP Trevor Rosenthal @6:30pm

I know being aggressive was one of the things Erickson said they were going to be this year…but IMO we’ve either got to cut back on that or be a lot smarter. One thing that stood out in the 4 games I was at least week was that we’re giving the opposition too many outs on the base paths.

We’ve been caught stealing 12 times (have 25 stolen bases). Now, Dayton leads the league with being caught 18 times…but they have 46 swipes already.

But other than that…another beautiful day at the ball park yesterday…high 40’s, no sun, 40 mph winds…but i guess at least it wasn’t rained out! I sure hope the weather has improved by next weekends homestand…
