A little more time tonight…sooooooo,

Notes:
All five of the River Bandits hits that drove in runs on Friday were with two strikes.
Five of the six hits David Burkhalter gave up were with two strikes.
Brandon Diaz has homered in two straight games.
Dustin DeMuth’s homer was to right-center, a part of the ballpark not many homers go.
Kodi Medeiros walked four in the game and three in the eighth inning.  He has walked four in two straight outings for eight walks in his last 5-1/3 innings pitched
Tonight’s loss gave the Rattlers a series loss.  They are 3-7 in the first ten series of the season.
Tucker Neuhaus has a nine-game hitting streak (13-for-37) since returning to the lineup.
Carlos Leal was 8-for-15 (.533) leading off innings heading into Friday’s Game
Leal has hit in every spot of the order this season except for 8th & 9th.
Including Friday’s 0-for-6, Wisconsin is now 37-for-251 (.147) with runners in scoring position
Including Friday’s 0-for-4, Wisconsin is now 19-for-116 (.164) with RISP w 2 out
Opponents v. Wisconsin Pitching in those situations:

Win Probability Chart:
Win Probability 5_07_15Up is bad on this chart when the Rattlers are on the road.

I don’t have a lot of time tonight and may expand on this in the morning…but, you can see where the two-out rally in the bottom of the first and the inability to drive in anyone in the seventh changed the momentum of the game…You don’t need math or a fancy chart to tell you how big those situatuions were.

Patience:

And get ’em tomorrow.
