The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers combined another scoreless performance from starting pitcher Brandon Knarr with a big offensive day for a 9-2 win over the South Bend Cubs on Saturday at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.


Wisconsin (24-14) used three two-out, RBI hits in the bottom of the first to take an early 3-0 lead.  Tyler Black, who singled to start the inning, was on second base with two outs.  Tristan Peters dropped a bloop single into right top score Black with the first run.  A wild pitch moved Peters into scoring position.  Then, Wes Clarke lined a single past the shortstop to score Peters.  A walk to Darrien Miller extended the inning and that allowed Carlos Rodríguez to double down the line and third to score Clarke for a 3-0 lead.

The Timber Rattlers kept the pressure on with three more runs in the second inning.  Black started the rally when he singled, stole second, and stole third with one out.  Zavier Warren walked and that brought Joe Gray Jr to the plate with runners at the corners.  Gray singled to left to score Black.  Warren would score when there was a wild throw to second on a force play on Gray after a grounder off the bat of Peters.  Clarke capped the scoring in the frame with a single to score Gray for a six-run cushion.

Ashton McGee made it 7-0 in favor of the home team with a single to left to score Rodríguez from second in the fifth inning.

That was plenty of support for Knarr.  The left-hander pitched six scoreless innings as he scattered five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts.  Knarr lowered his ERA for the season to 1.17, moved his season strikeout total to 55, and extended his current scoreless innings streak to 13-1/3 innings.  In his last five starts, Knarr has allowed two runs on over 30 innings.  Four of those starts have been scoreless outings for Knarr.


Warren hit a solo home run and Rodríguez added an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth for a 9-0 lead.


South Bend (23-15) got on the scoreboard in the top of the ninth inning on a two-run double by Fabian Pertuz.  Zach Mort, who entered in relief of Knarr to start the seventh inning, got the final two outs of the game and picked up his first professional save with his three innings out of the bullpen.

Saturday’s win gives Wisconsin a chance at a series split with a win Sunday afternoon in the series finale.


Antoine Kelly (1-0, 2.14) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers.  Kohl Franklin (0-3, 8.44) was moved from his Saturday start to be South Bend’s starting pitcher on Sunday.  Game time is 1:10pm.

Brewers shut out Nationals

Rowdy Tellez's two-run homer in the sixth inning would be all the scoring the Milwaukee Brewers would need in their 7-0 win over the Washington Nationals Friday night.

Eric Lauer did not need much help as he held the Nationals scoreless over seven innings, allowing just five hits while striking out five.


The two teams face each other again tomorrow.

South Bend Hits Three Homers to Get by Wisconsin

The South Bend Cubs hit three home runs to account for all their runs in a 6-2 win over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Friday night at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Owen Caissie had two of the homers and drove in four runs as the Cubs’ win tightened up the race at the top of the Western Division.


Caissie hit a lead-off home run in the top of the second inning to put South Bend up 1-0.


Wes Clarke got the Rattlers back to even in the bottom of the second inning with a two-out, solo home run.

Caissie struck again in the fourth inning when he hit a three-run home run and the Cubs had a 4-1 lead.

South Bend used the home run again to add to their lead in the seventh inning.  Scott McKeon homered to center with a runner at first and one out for a 6-1 lead.

The Timber Rattlers were silenced through the middle innings.  DJ Herz retired six of the final seven batters he faced for the third and fourth innings.  Then, Walker Powell set down thirteen of the first fourteen hitters he faced.

Tristan Peters broke that streak with a one-out single in the bottom of the ninth.  Wes Clarke kept the inning alive with a two-out bloop single to right that sent Peters to third base.  Carlos Rodríguez beat out an infield single to score Peters and get the Rattlers another run. 

That run would be the last for the Rattlers as Powell got a strikeout to end the game and give the Cubs their third straight win in the series.

Wisconsin and South Bend now have identical records of 23-14.  Both teams trail the Cedar Rapids Kernels, the Western Division leaders, by two games heading into the final two games of the weekend.  The Kernels lost 5-1 to Lake County at home on Friday night.


Game five of the series between the Cubs and Timber Rattlers is Saturday afternoon at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Brandon Knarr (5-1, 1.34) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers.  South Bend has named Kohl Franklin (0-3, 8.44) as their starting pitcher.  Game time is 1:10pm.
