Postgame thoughts (May 3, 2011)

And yet the windows still don't open

Rattlers 3, @River Bandits 1

Game story | Boxscore

  • DUDE!  SWEEP!
  • First sweep of the Bandits in Quad Cities since 2003.
  • Kids, here’s a tip for you when you are running the bases.  Do NOT run with your head down.  That happened three times yesterday and a couple of times on Monday.  You’re going to see it in the Midwest League, but wow…it happened a lot in this series.
  • Thankfully, the majority of the times it happened in this series it happened to the guys who are St. Louis farmhands.
  • I’m not sure if it would help – or if it has been done – but it might be a good idea to let the umpires know about Tyler Thornburg’s jump turn on pickoff throws to first.  It wasn’t called a balk in his first two starts, but the last two umpiring crews have called it.
  • No clean innings for Thornburg. He (unofficially) racked up 100 pitches in six innings.
  • Still.  6IP, R, 0ER.  The run scored after a single, a passed ball, a wild pitch, and a wild pitch.  Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but he made the pitches he needed to make to keep the Bandits off the board.
  • STOSH! Two scoreless frames AND a 3-2 OT playoff win for the Canucks in Nashville. O, Canada!
  • Holle gets the save for the second day in a row.  Gets a couple of strikeouts, too.
  • The bus got into Beloit at 1am this morning.  Time to get back to work
  • Well, not quite.
  • In honor of TJ Mittelstaedt’s homer to the top of the Tiki Bar in the first inning:

The first thing I thought of last night musically was a little different…

Rattlers sweep a three game series, three games in a row is officially a winning streak and three…is a magic number:
