SHOW ME FIVE!

May 22 2014 004

Just a few thoughts:

Victor Diaz has been ridiculously good and has run a scoreless streak out to 15-1/3 innings with six more scoreless innings on Thursday.

Anthony Banda had a roller coaster performance in 2-1/3 innings.  In the seventh, he gave up two runs and it could have got away from him there, but he stranded three runners.  In the eighth, he struck out the side in order and looked really, really good. But, the walk in the ninth started the game winning rally.  The wild pitch allowed the winning run to go to third with one out and led to….

The Rattlers going to five infielders.  But, it didn’t work out tonight.  The coaches are doing whatever they can to get this thing turned around for the final 23 games of the first half.

The five infield formation wasn’t the only turn to the bizarre on Thursday.

The Timber Rattlers have a video intern who sets up cameras around the ballpark to record the players at bats and pitches and other things.  It’s a teaching tool and many teams in the Midwest League have a video intern.  He got on the bus after the game tonight and said, “Someone stole my centerfield camera tonight.”

Someone just walked around to the back of the outfield fence and took a pretty expensive camera without being seen or caught.  It didn’t necessarily have to be a fan either.  The back of the field is wide open to pedestrians and anyone can get back there.  As long as they don’t stand on something to watch the game, there’s no problem….until tonight.  If you are reading this in the Beloit area and see someone filming a birthday party with a camera that has T-RATS on the side….Ask, “Hey, there must be a pretty interesting story behind how you got that camera, eh?”

Ridiculous.  It’s like a parallel universe down here.

Let’s end on an up note.

Congratulations to Omar Garcia:

No field picture today…too, depressing.  This may not be real, but this is what a google image search of – unicorn playing baseball – finds….It’s much more cheery:
