Brought to you by Rasmussen College
The Timber Rattlers won at 9-3 over the Fort Wayne Wizards on May 15, 1998 at Fox Cities Stadium.
This game is notable for one thing: Back-to-back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the sixth inning by Luis Figueroa, Harvey Hargrove,and Mike Marchiano.
Plus, Joel Pineiro struck out nine over six innings to run his record to 5-1.
It is also noted in the story that the Rattlers wore jerseys that were throwbacks to the Appleton Papermakers teams in the 1950s. Those were sweet.
