Postgame Thoughts (July 22, 2011)

Handshakes all around

Wisconsin 7, Lansing 2
Boxscore | Game Story

  • Amazing what a long home run on the first pitch of the game can do.
  • Mittelstaedt crushed that first pitch and the game never felt in doubt after that.
  • Nelson continues to get results. He is 3-1 w/ a 2.56ERA in six second half starts.
  • I know that others may have caught this too, but No walks tonight for Nelson.
  • One other split for Nelson: First Half: 61.2IP/43K Second Half: 38.2IP/36K
  • But, remember it’s not all about strikeouts.
  • Shaw with three more hits.
  • The offense hit the snooze alarm for a bit again, but pushed out to a bigger lead with three run seventh inning.
  • By the way, Mittelstaedt with nine homers and 17 stolen bases this season
  • Welcome to the MWL, Alan Williams.  1-1/3 scoreless innings in your Timber Rattlers debut.
  • It gets no easier for the Rattlers.  Great Lakes is the host for the next three days and they just swept Beloit.
  • But, that is for tomorrow.  Friday’s game was one that you can hang a star on to remember in the offseason and just a really, well-played game by the Rattlers.
  • There isn’t a lot to add to this one. Except for maybe this little thing that I found on the internet earlier today.  It makes me smile when I see it.  I don’t see how it can’t make everyone smile.

I's Sam the Eagle as Captain America!!

  • Enjoy that win, Rattlers and Rattlers fans.  Another game on Saturday night.
