Matt Erickson on Gilbert Lara:
Jon: Gilbert Lara, the recent Brewers signee, was with the team this afternoon. What did he go through?
Matt: Unfortunately, he couldn’t do anything on field because he hasn’t had his physical yet. But we got him in uniform. We got him down there with the guys. He spent the entire day with our clubhouse and in our clubhouse, trying to just get a feel for the daily routine that we have. And it was good. Our guys took to him and there was a bunch of guys went and introduced themselves.
Impressive young kid, 15-16 years old…long, lanky, athletic body…He’s got huge hands. I haven’t seen him do any baseball physical activity, but an impressive looking kid.
The Timber Rattlers won their first season series over the River Bandits since 2008.

From the Game Story:
This series is the final meeting of the regular season between the Timber Rattlers and River Bandits. Both teams missed the playoffs in the first half and are fighting for one of two spots in the second half. Quad Cities is now up two games on the Rattlers in the Wild Card standings. Additionally, Quad Cities now leads the season series 7-6 and has outscored the Timber Rattlers 63-58. The first tie-breaker is the team that wins the season series. The second tie-breaker is run differential.
I will add that the third tie-breaker goes to the team that wins the final meeting of the season between the teams…Seriously.
Still a long way to go in the season. Just something else to think about for later.
