Postgame Thoughts (June 19, 2011)

High Fives!

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.
