Postgame thoughts (August 14, 2011)

He's got it!

Wisconsin 12, Quad Cities 3
Boxscore | Game Story

  • Now, THAT is how you follow up getting shutout!
  • Before getting to the offense, let’s hear it for Brooks Hall.
  • I believe that I have used the made up word “Pitchability” and the old west prospector word “Gumption” to describe Hall.
  • Both words still stand after today.
  • Bases loaded w/ no outs in the 2nd: one run; two on in the 3rd: 0 runs; leadoff 2B in the 4th: 0 runs; 1 out 2B in the 5th: 0 runs
  • Very nice.
  • Speaking of very nice, TJ Mittelstaedt officially broke out of his slump today.   Before this game, he was 1-for-34 with one RBI for the month of August.  Today: 3-for-5 with a homer, and four RBI.
  • By the way, Mittelstaedt with 10 homers and 20 stolen bases this season.
  • Nick Ramirez also drove in four runs on Sunday and continues to scald the baseball.
  • Jason Rogers double in the sixth would have been a homer…if the wall in left were 8′ high.
  • I think that Rogers has hit at least four – maybe five – balls off the top tier of the wall in left field at home.  He’d be at about nine or ten homers on the season.
  • But, that doesn’t matter when you can beat out infield singles to let the go ahead score!
  • Rattlers hitting with runners in scoring position on Sunday: 9-for-16.
  • Rattlers w/ RISP and 2 outs on Sunday: 6-for-9
  • I’ll need to check with someone, but I think that’s pretty good.
  • Seth Lintz with 9-2/3 scoreless innings over seven outings for the Rattlers.
  • Oh, Lintz w/ four walks and nine strikeouts in those 9-2/3 innings.
  • I also saw a 94mph in there for him, too.
  • Miller Time on Monday afternoon.
  • Enjoy the highlights.
