Postgame Thoughts (August 4, 2011)

Clinton 3, Wisconsin 2
Boxscore | Game Story

  • Well, shoot.
  • Miller pitched well again.
  • He made a very nice pitch and jammed Stefen Romero in the first inning.
  • But, was unfortunate that the ball dropped in for a two-out RBI single.
  • STOSH! and Casey Medlen both solid again out of the bullpen.
  • Did you know that Casey Medlen has allowed one unearned run and an 8:0 K:BB in 11 innings pitched since joining the team?
  • Well, he does.
  • Chad Stang with three hits AND a very nice read on a base hit to right-center that turned a single into a double AND led to the first Wisconsin run in the game.
  • I’m still not sure if Rivers caught that ball on the sacrifice fly by Rogers in the eighth inning.
  • It looked like it may have bounced, but Nick Shaw started to head back to first before the base umpire made the call.
  • Shaw was at first when the ball was hit and he had turned to look at the play to make sure he wasn’t caught some place he shouldn’t have been.
  • So, close.
  • Who knows? IF that ball falls in, there are at least runners at first and second with one out with the Rattlers down a run.
  • But, it doesn’t work that way.
  • By the way, Shaw extended his hitting streak to 11 games tonight.  It’s his second 11-game hit streak this season.
  • Oh, and Joey Paciorek has quietly put together a 7-game hitting streak.
  • Game four of the series is Friday night.  Last chance against the LumberKings this season.

Sorry for the bare bones.  Highlights have not generated yet

and the picture I took tonight was more terrible than what I usually take.  Head here to check for highlights.
