Walkoff Wednesday (2010 Season)

It’s Walkoff Wednesday on Rattler Radio.

This week it’s the 2010 season.  And what the Rattlers missed in quantity of walkoffs this season is made up for in quality of walkoffs.  Two of the Rattlers four walkoff wins came when they entered their final at bat trailing.  

The Hunter Morris double to beat Cedar Rapids is especially satisfying since 2010 was the year Mike Trout and the Kernels owned the Timber Rattlers AND it was the first extra inning victory of the season for Wisconsin.
