Lineup and Game Notes – August 24, 2014

It’s so good to be back home again!  Game time tonight is 5:05pm.

August 24 ballpark

Before getting to this evening’s game.  Head over to read the Peoria Journal-Star story on Wisconsin’s 11-7 win in eleven innings over the Chiefs.  There are a few Timber Rattlers highlights as called by Nathan Baliva…my calls on the Rattlers highlights were a bit more enthusiastic.

The team bus arrived at the ballpark at 4:15am this morning.  It’s been a bit of a scramble to get ready today, but I will definitely revisit Saturday’s game with some audio highlights before the end of this homestand.  I may name it Mehring’s Seven Most Over The Top Calls from August 23.

Yes, I did say that I would sacrifice my favorite pen if the Rattlers could get a double play to end last night’s game.  A moment for Fred, please.

On to tonight!

Lineup, Transaction, & Game Notes for August 23, 2014

Here’s the thing for tonight’s 6:30pm game at Peoria.

August 23 ballpark
If the Rattlers win tonight, they own the tiebreaker over the Chiefs.  If the Chiefs win tonight, they own the tiebreaker over the Rattlers.

If the Rattlers win tonight, they will be 32-29 and the Chiefs will be 30-31.  When you figure in the tiebreaker, Wisconsin will basically be three games up on the Chiefs with nine games left in the season.

If Peoria wins tonight, both teams will be 31-30, but – when you figure in the tiebreaker – the Chiefs will be one game up on the Rattlers with nine games left in the season.

A late-season baseball game with a four-game swing in the standings at stake! Where else would you rather be than right here, right now!
