August 29, 2012 Highlights
Apologies for not posting this last night. I stared at the blank screen again. Then, I remembered that I had to do an interview on a radio station at 7:20 this morning.
Just some quick morning after thoughts:
Chad Thompson had a 13 inning scoreless streak snapped with that 2-out run he allowed in the sixth inning.
Wang-Wei Lin is a wizard. I can’t think of any other way that he could have possibly made the catch to rob Stang of a game winning hit in the bottom of the ninth.
Rattlers pitchers issued leadoff walks in the 7th, 10th, & 12th. Each of those leadoff walks scored.
Three of Beloit’s six runs scored on two out hits.
The teams combined (BEL: 4-for-21; WIS: 2-for-11) to hit 6-for-32 with RISP.
Beloit trails the Rattlers for the best overall record in the Western Division by 2-1/2 games with five to play.
In the Western Division Wild Card race, Burlington & Kane County both lost. Burlington still has a three game lead over Kane County for the Second Half Wild Card. Burlington is looking more and more likely to be the Rattlers first round opponent.
