Postgame Post – May 13, 2014

I’m just taking a wild guess here…but I’m pretty sure that Michael Ratterree and the Timber Rattlers relievers in the bullpen have never seen a giant shopping cart before tonight.

I'm guessing that Michael Ratterree has never seen a GIANT shopping cart with people dressed as cheese spread before tonight.

At least the people dressed as cheese spread is something they’ve seen this season.

It was 73 at gametime.  It was 54 later.  It got foggy.

Here is Trevor Seidenberger getting James Ramsay to line out to Chris McFarland in the 6th:

Here is the shot of the field in the 9th:

 

May 12 2014 011

Trevor Seidenberger’s scoreless string ends at 11-1/3 on the unearned run in the top of the seventh and he takes the tough luck loss on Monday.

Chris McFarland’s hitting streak is at nine games after his two-run single in the fifth inning tied the game 3-3.

Preston Gainey was at 97 pitches (64 strikes) through 4-2/3 innings pitched.

I want to thank whatever or whomever it was that kept the rain away from the ballpark to the game to be played. The last thing anyone wanted to deal with was another doubleheader.

Dad, if it was you, thank you.

For the record, the needle was at 96 & 97 for Jandel Gustave, the final pitcher for the River Bandits on Monday night.

RULE OF THUMB #1:  If you grow a mustache….it should look like this!

This was a really nice game for the Rattlers to win. Clean game with a fine starting performance by Diaz. Chris McFarland stayed hot. Anthony Banda fought his wildness and won.

Clint Coulter may not have had a hit, but he walked two more times to give him 23 of those on the season. He struck out once, but he has just 22 of those this season….132 plate appearances by a guy with 8 homers and his BB:K is 23:22….That’s good right?

The Rattlers took two of three from the Kernels to give them their first series victory since they swept the two game set from Lansing on April 16.

Apologies for the shortness of the post. It was a scramble to get going this morning and Jon was off today so no postgame audio.

My crummy call on the highlights will have to do.

Have a great Mother’s Day, everyone. See you Monday.
