Postgame thoughts (8/11/11)

Good times never seemed so good.

Beloit 6, Wisconsin 4
Boxscore | Game Story

  • Missed opportunities tonight.  Both in the game and in the standings.
  • Kane County and Clinton both lost and Beloit picks up ground on both.
  • Nick Ramirez was striking the ball with authority tonight.  Both of his hits were smacked.  He just missed on a home run in the sixth as he pulled the ball just foul to right.  Then, he drew a walk.
  • Reggie Keen with two hits AND two very nice catches.  You’ll see both catches on the the highlights
  • For 70’s night, the players went with 70’s music for their intro music….
  • Mike Brownstein went 0-for-5 on the night.  He had “More Than A Feeling” by Boston.
  • Brownstein may now hate the band Boston almost as much as I do.
  • I hate the band Boston…a lot…A. Lot.
  • The Rattlers keep swinging until their final out again.  Down 6-3 with two outs and none on in the bottom of the ninth.  Macias singles. Keen singles. Shaw singles! Macias scores! Winning run to the plate….
  • But, it didn’t happen tonight.
  • A bit off topic here, but every time  I had to say the name O’Rourke for the Beloit starting pitcher, I think of this classic John Wayne movie.  Now, I want to watch that movie again.
  • Seth Lintz has pitched two more scoreless innings with a pair of walks and a strikeout.
  • Lintz for the season: 8.1IP, 3H, 3BB, 8K
  • Velocity was good, too.
  • Earlier today, I taped a few segments to Timber Rattlers Field Pass.  The show should debut on Sports32 on August 23rd.  Interviews with Matt Erickson, Charlie Greene, and Matt Miller.
  • I was trying to figure out how many years we have been doing Field Pass, a show that started out on Cable Access.  I think it was 2003…maybe 2003….
  • During the off-season, they may need to put up video on youtube of Mirror Universe Mehring (I had a goatee for the playoff run) interviewing Jeff Clement in one of his first days in a Timber Rattlers uniform.

Love the pick off by Mittelstaedt at first. What a Dirtbag!
