Postgame Thoughts (May 22, 2011)

Timber Rattlers 4, Bees 3
Boxscore | Game Story

Video Highlights:

  • 4-3 win? Where have I seen that score for the Rattlers?
  • New Olympic Competition: 4-Man 27-out sprint.  You get four relievers.  You need to win the game.  GO!
  • I almost came up with something like: Outlined against a blue Wisconsin sky the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. These are only aliases. Their real names are: Dunn, Britt, Cravy and STOSH!
  • But, that would be plagiarism.
  • Great job today by all of the relievers.  Dun got through three.  Britt, who tossed seven innings on Wednesday against Beloit, comes back on three days rest for a couple of innings.  Cravy did the job, until he made the hot tag to STOSH!
  • Wawrzasek came out for the ninth inning and closed it out for the save.  That savesHolle for tomorrow if the Rattlers need him.  that’s big in a lot of ways.
  • Offensively, Shaw with two solid hits.  Mittelstaedt continues to heat up.  Dennis picks up an RBI through a drawn-in infield in the bottom of the first inning.
  • Yadiel Rivera got a gift of a 2-0 pitch to hit his first pro homer.  Look at where that thing was.  BOOM goes the dynamite!
  • Shaw with a couple of more webgems.
  • Today the weather decided to do something different.  It was AWESOME!  THEN, it rained.  A lot.  Then, it hailed!  Then, we were under a tornado warning.  Then, it stopped.  NOW, it’s starting again.  SHEESH!
  • That said, 5,580 was the attendance today.  Big things ahead…I think.
  • One of my favorite episodes of Without a Trace is Win Today.  Jack Malone proves he can take a punch…and much, much worse. Plus, there is this exchange between Jack and his surprise interrogator.
    Cynthia Neuwirth: You know what Joe Torre says.
    Jack Malone: Oh, I don’t know, what? Go Yankees?
    Cynthia Neuwirth: Win today. And all he’s got is George Steinbrenner to worry about.
  • My favorite episode of Without a Trace is Candy.  I will not provide links to that.
  • Zach Braddock and Austin Ross tomorrow.  Then, the Rattlers hit the road…for a long time…
  • Sorry for the quality of the post tonight. I’m running on empty and have a lot of stuff to do. Watch the highlights again and
