Postgame thoughts (July 7, 2011)

Cougars 10, Rattlers 7
Boxscore | Game story

  • To answer the question, “I think so. At least since 2005”  The question?  “Is five homer allowed a record?”
  • I went back and looked after the game.  The most homers allowed in a game by the Rattlers since 2005 was four.
  • To give credit to the Cougars, none of them were cheap.
  • Jake Kuebler was hitting .196 with two homers in 37 games coming into Wednesday’s game.
  • He hit three home runs and got a call from the folks at  I believe this is the third or fourth time that an opposing player has received a call from the folks in New York after a game in Time Warner Cable Field.
  • A goal for the rest of the season should be for that NOT to happen any more.
  • Del Howell’s Line was: 3.2IP, 7H, 6R, BB, 2K, 2 HR. Unofficially: 57 pitches (32 strikes)
  • Look at those highlights again…Did Mitch Hodge fall down on the Jason Rogers double in the sixth inning?
  • Walker hit the home run off the top half of the rotating panels.  Remember! he’s left-handed, folks!
  • Not on the highlights is the last out of the game.  I really thought that Jason Rogers was going to at least get that ball off the wall in left-center to bring the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth.
  • But, Eibner made a great catch.
  • Dang it!
  • Cody Hawn & Chad Stang both extended their hitting streaks to seven games.
  • Greg Hopkins is now at a nine game hitting streak.
  • Missed opportunity of the night: Bases loaded, no outs in the bottom of the 5th inning. Rattlers down 6-1. No runs. Ouch.
  • Back to Mitch Hodge for a second.  He has appeared in three games against the Rattlers this season. His line v. the Rattlers: 8IP, 15H, HB, 6BB, 4K.  Of the 22 base runners Wisconsin has had against Hodge, how many have scored?
  • Answer: Five.
  • I would not have thought that was even possible?
  • 12:05pm game time tomorrow. Weather’s going to be great, Matt Miller is on the hill. Come on out.
  • Get ’em tomorrow.
