Rattler Alumni Notes from Spring Training
A couple of homers and a couple of Spring Training wins for former Timber Rattlers in the first few games of Spring Training.
Mitch Haniger homered in the Brewers intrasquad game on 2/26 and against the A’s on 2/27.
Khris Davis homered against the Rockies on 3/2.
I know..Spring Training wins may be the weakest stat there is, BUT…
Chris Tillman picked up the win for Baltimore on 2/28 against Tampa Bay. Oddly, the pitcher tagged with the loss was Erik Bedard, the player Seattle traded to the Orioles for Tillman, Adam Jones, and three other players so many years ago.
Kevin Shackelford earned the win for the Brewers on 3/1 by pitching around three hits in two scoreless innings against the Dodgers. I have an explanation:
