Postgame post – June 8, 2014

Two games back with seven to play.  Difficult….not impossible….BUT, there’s this from the game two game story:

There was a lot of movement in the Midwest League’s Western Division Wild Card race on Sunday. The Burlington Bees swept a pair of games from the Beloit Snappers and the Quad Cities River Bandits swept two games from the Peoria Chiefs. Peoria fell from the lead into third place Wild Card race. Quad Cities jumped to a one game lead over the Chiefs and Burlington is just a half game behind the River Bandits. Quad Cities will host the Chiefs on Monday night. Burlington has a doubleheader at home against Beloit.

To put that paragraph in…um…graph form…

Quad Cities 33-29 —
Burlington 32-29 0.5
Peoria 32-20 1.0
Wisconsin 31-31 2.0
Clinton 29-32 3.5

Remaining Games:
Quad Cities (7): v. Peoria (1), @ Cedar Rapids (3), v. Wisconsin (3)
Burlington (8): v. Beloit (2), @ Clinton (3), @Cedar Rapids (3)

Final 2 outs of the game:

I don’t have a lot to add to the game story.  Just this…Did you know that four of the Timber Rattlers eight hits on Sunday were bunt singles?

And this…You can bunt three straight times and get run.

And this…Steve Halcomb tried to get a bunt down after the bunt singles by Francisco Castillo, Omar Garcia, and Johnny Davis.   He popped back to the mound.  That was four bunts in a row.  Just for kicks Clint Coulter should have dropped one down just to see what would happen.


I mentioned this story on the air today. But, wanted to share it on the blog.

Conrad Gregor of Quad Cities hit a home run on Saturday to put the River Bandits in front of the Cedar Rapids Kernels.  That was just the start of the story.

Conrad Gregor’s first home run of the season was caught on the fly Saturday night by the happiest fan at Modern Woodmen Park.

As Gregor rounded the bases following a three-run blast which put Quad-Cities ahead to stay in its 5-2 Midwest League win over Cedar Rapids, the fan standing behind the wall in the right-center power alley pumped his arms in the air, proudly waving the ball for all in the crowd of 5,494 to see.

He had his reasons.

“That was my dad,’’ Gregor explained after the River Bandits finished off the three-game sweep of the Kernels.

Would’ve been better on Father’s Day….But, the Rattlers are in Quad Cities on Father’s Day…So…good thing it happened last night.

Really nice win for the Timber Rattlers to take two of three from the Whitecaps.  I really need to ask the outfielders what they are doing.  Drop a hint in the comments if you know.

Outfielders celebration

What are they doing? I never know what they are doing.

Pregame interview with Rafael Neda:

Apologies for the wind conditions in that interview….If I were perfect, I would be boring…right?
