Rattlers 4, TinCaps 1
Boxscore | Game Story
- Watch the video. I’m not sure what else I can add to that stuff.
- Did you see him in the highlight after getting the strikeout to end the seventh inning? You can’t tell me that he didn’t enjoy that outing today.
- That was a vast improvement from his first start of the homestand.
- He hit 94 on the gun and struck out eight. Still needs a little refinement and there were four stolen bases on him. BUT, he pitched like a second round pick! That is very good.
- Greg Holle is used to pitching with runners on base. So, I wasn’t surprised to see him get out of that jam in the 8th.
- Tyler Roberts has had a tough series at the plate, but look at the defensive play that he made on the low throw from Hopkins for the second out of that eighth inning. Tough play. But, Country made it.
- Speaking of Hopkins…HE’S ON FIRE! Three more hits today and another RBI. His hitting streak is now at 12 games. Plus, with all of the defensive plays….I believe that to use a more accurate video game reference…Hopkins is in God Mode.
- Nick Shaw is not far behind. He is on his second 10-game hitting streak of the season and his batting average is at .262.
- Damn. Peoria won. Beloit won. Quad Cities won. Up-to-date Wild Card Standings:
- This will not be easy.
- Here are the scheduled pitchers for the Rattlers on the road trip:
TUE: Austin Ross

- Okay. Off day on Monday. I may post. I may not. Not sure yet. A lot of the players will be at the Golf Outing for the Miracle League of the Fox Valley.
- Right now..PRINCE! First place Brewers! Yes, a long way to go, but I love it.
