Boxscore | Game Story

Tough way to end the homestand for the Rattlers.  There were some chances in there, but nothing came of them.

Off day on Tuesday and back at it in Kane County on Wednesday.

Hope everyone enjoys the off day tomorrow.  There are 41 games left in the regular season and the next scheduled off day after July 24 is August 14.  That off day on Augusts 14 is the last scheduled off day of the regular season.

July 22, 2012 Highlights

Lugnuts 7
Rattlers 5
Boxscore | Game Story

Who scheduled the flyover?

Gotta be quick because I have a few other things going on tonight, but a couple of quick points before the highlights:

Don’t be too surprised that the Lugnuts scored a runner from first on that two out single in the first.  It was a perfect storm.  The runner was going on contact with two outs. The ball was hit to the gap.  Stang cut it off to hold the runner at first, but Hawkins, the runner from first never stopped running and scored.  I’m sure MiLB.TV will have that highlight available tomorrow.  Watch for it.

Mark Williams deserved a much better fate on Sunday.  The bloop hit by Schaeffer to score a run in the second maybe got twenty feet into the outfield.  The Andy Fermin RBI double in the third was a broken bat bloop down the right field that was a really good pitch by Williams.  But, Fermin got the job done.

Nick Ramirez with an opposite field home run.  It was his eleventh home run of the year.  Ben McMahan with a drive to left for his ninth home run of the season.

Chadwin Stang with an eight game hitting streak after a ground rule double in the sixth.  It’s his longest hitting streak of the season.

Brandon Macias with his 93rd hit and 60th run scored for the Rattlers today. Stang has 92 hits and 62 runs scored.

I was not surprised that the tying run got to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning for the Timber Rattlers…Never give up, never surrender.

Boxscore | Game Story

Have to keep this a little short tonight.  Quick turnaround for tomorrow’s 1:05pm game.  Nine after 9 will return soon.  Sorry for slacking off lately.  There just hasn’t been a lot of time to do it with the long, late games and various other things.

Three quick Did you knows….

Did you know that when Greg Hopkins pinch hit for Adrian Williams in the seventh inning, it was only the second time this season the Rattlers have used a pinch hitter?

Did you know – before you skipped ahead and watched the video highlights – that Max Walla’s home run tonight was his first at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium?

Did you know, the crowd of 6,211 was the largest of the season for the Rattlers in Grand Chute?

Feel free to drop your own points or questions in the comments.  It is allowed you know.
