End of the homestand

Poets are like baseball pitchers. Both have their moments. The intervals are the tough things. – Robert Frost

South Bend 12
Wisconsin 3
Boxscore | Game Story

Some quick points because there is a lot to do tonight before leaving for Lansing tomorrow.

  • The Timber Rattlers were 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position in this game
  • Michael Reed had a double in the first inning.  He moved his hitting streak to 7-games with that hit.
  • The top of the sixth inning was tough to describe.  A pair of windblown popups dropped in for foul balls, an error, and a double play that wasn’t turned.  It went on way longer than it should have.
  • South Bend led 5-3 with no outs and the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the seventh. From there…it gt out of hand in a hurry.
  • The – originally unscheduled – off day comes at a very opportune time.  The team will travel to Lansing on Wednesday and start that series with a doubleheader on Thursday.  Here are the scheduled starters for that series:THU G-1: RHP Tyler Wagner v. LHP Daniel Norris
    THU G-2: LHP Mike Strong v. RHP Javier Avendano
    FRI: RHP Leonard Lorenzo v. LHP Alonzo Gonzalez
