Timber Rattlers 4, Kernels 1
Boxscore | Game Story
- Twitter updates from earlier today to explain why a three inning outing by Austin Ross was not a big deal
Trainer Jeff Paxson would not be watching the game from the dugout if something was wrong with Ross.
Plus, [Del] Howell hasn’t been in a game since 6/10.
…And Keep in mind that the All-Star Game is Tuesday.
- I think the first one is the main clue.
- If today’s game was a win and their in situation, Ross probably would have been in there and to HECK with appearing in the All-Star Game.
- But, it wasn’t.
- For once, I don’t think that I messed up the lede for the game story:
TJ Mittelstaedt may not want four days off for the Midwest League All-Star break. The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers outfielder had a triple, a home run, and two RBI in a 4-1 victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels on Sunday afternoon in the final game of the first half. Mittelstaedt went 11-for-21 with a pair of home runs during the just concluded 7-game road trip for the Rattlers.
- Your leaders at the break:
AVG: Walker – .282
HR: Walker – 11
RBI: Walker – 49
SB: Keen – 28
WINS: Thornburg – 7
ERA: Thornburg 1.57
SO: Thornburg – 76
SAVES: Holle 15
- A couple of reminders:
The Rattlers will be off until Friday night. They return to Midwest League action against the River Bandits on 6/24
I will have a liveblog of…whatever they are calling the Home Run Derby on Monday night and the game on Tuesday.
You will be able to watch the game on Sports32 if you are a Time Warner Cable Subscriber in Wisconsin
- Speaking of Sports32, they have allowed the Timber Rattlers to put a segment of the latest edition of Field Pass on YouTube:
- Enjoy the next few days, Timber Rattlers fans. Have some fun. The real work starts on Friday.
