Lineup & Game Notes (July 10, 2011)
Sorry about the lack of a post on last night’s game. My computer refused to connect to the hotel internet last night.
Most of my thoughts on last night’s game have been transferred to the Game Notes for today. Click on that link below and read the left hand column of page one for those thoughts.
What did not make it into the game notes are:
- Zach Russell turned into Kurt Russell last night. I wouldn’t necessarily say he was Snake Plissken from Escape from New York. Maybe Sgt. Todd from Soldier or Herb Brooks from Miracle. Definitely not Gabe Cash from Tango & Cash.
- By going 0-for-2 with the bases loaded last night, Wisconsin is now 17-for-82 (.209) in the bases full this season.
- Charly Bashara has not allowed a run in six of his last seven games.
- Last night was the sixth time this season Bashara has tossed three or more innings in relief.
A couple of other notes for today:
