Postgame thoughts (June 8, 2011)


Rattlers 14, Captains 2
Boxscore | Game Story

  • I doubt that there is anything that I could add to those video highlights–especially after 14 hours of sleep…yes, I was tired.
  • Okay, a couple of things.  Yes. That was a knuckleball that Captains starting pitcher Steven Wright was tossing up there.
  • TJ Mittelstaedt, the Rattlers own knuckleball tossing pitcher, drew a walk to start the carnage in the bottom of the first
  • Four homers in a game – first time for the Rattlers since July 3, 2010 at Burlington
  • 20 hits in a game – first time for the Rattlers since August 5, 2007 at Fort Wayne
  • The reason for the TBA today instead of Tyler Thornburg is that Thornburg was sent home sick from the stadium each of the last two days.  He may not make the start today…Might be Dan Britt…Don’t know yet.
  • Jameson Dunn’s scoreless streak ended at 18-2/3 innings when he gave up a home run to LeVon Washington in the 5th.
  • A quick did you know: Did You Know: Dunn and Brooks Hall are a combined 4-0 with a 2.42ERA since joining the Timber Rattlers?
  • Do we need to start calling them Brooks & Dunn?  Maybe not.
  • Thanks a lot, Lansing:

[Cody] Stanley cracked the game-tying, bases-loaded double in the bottom of the sixth, and Victor Sanchez knocked him in one pitch later to rally Quad-Cities to a 4-3 win over Lansing at Modern Woodmen Park on Wednesday.

  • Again. Thanks a lot for holding that 3-0 lead.
  • Well, Peoria lost. Rattlers are in third all by themselves.  Still trail Quad Cities by two games for the Wild Card.  Rattlers have 11 games left in the half.
