Brewers finish sweep of Indians

The Milwaukee Brewers saw their winning streak stretch to five after sweeping the Cleveland Indians Sunday with an 11-1 victory.

 

The Brewers put up three runs in an inning three different times, but got things rolling in the first inning with a solo shot in the first inning.

Packers get nothing going in season opener

The Green Bay Packers' starters faltered in their first real game action of the year, getting blown out at neutral site as the New Orleans Saints won 38-3.

 

The Packers did not score until time was expiring in the first half when Mason Crosby kicked a 39-yard field goal.  It was preceded by the Saints controlling the line of scrimmage defensively and scoring on a field goal and two of the five passing touchdowns by Jameis Winston. 

 

It went from bad to worse in the second half as Winston threw a touchdown pass in the third quarter and another two in the fourth quarter. The Packers threatened, but an Aaron Rodgers interception and a Jordan Love fumble killed two drives in the red zone. 

 

Rodgers had a forgettable day, throwing two interceptions in the second half en route to his fourth-lowest passer rating in his career before getting yanked in the fourth quarter in favor of Love. The running game was an afterthought, rushing the ball only 15 times for a total of 43 yards. The only saving grace: every other NFC North team lost on Sunday.

 

The Packers will try again on Monday Night Football next week when they play the Detroit Lions.

Wiemer Wows Wisconsin with Walkoff Homer

It couldn’t have been anyone else but Joey Wiemer for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers on Sunday afternoon at Neuroscience Group Field.  The Rattlers outfielder was 0-for-5 and had left twelve runners on base in his first five at bats against Beloit Snappers pitchers in the game.  Wiemer got one more chance when he stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with two runners on base and one out.  Wiemer made the most of this opportunity when he hit a three-run, walkoff home run to push Wisconsin past the Snappers 7-5.

 

The Snappers (49-59) rallied with two outs in the top of the second to score four runs and take the early lead.  Ricky Aracena blooped a single to shallow left to drive in the first run.  Then, Connor Scott cracked a three-run homer, his ninth of the season.

Wisconsin (52-55) scored a run with two outs in the bottom of the second.  Carlos Rodríguez dropped a single just fair down the line in left to score LG Castillo from third base.  The Rattlers would load the bases but stranded all three runners with Wiemer flying out to left to end the inning.

The duo of Aracena and Scott combined for another two-out rally in the fourth.  Wisconsin starter TJ Shook retired the first two batters he faced in the inning.  Then, Aracena tripled to right-center and Scott singled up the middle and the Snappers were up 5-1.

Wisconsin had rallied from three-run deficits to beat the Snappers in the first three games of the series and they had plenty of opportunities.

Beloit starting pitcher George Soriano turned that 5-1 lead over to his bullpen after five innings.  Soriano escaped the fifth inning by stranding runners at second and third after getting Wiemer to ground out.

The Rattlers loaded the bases against Justin Evans in the sixth but all three runners were left stranded when the inning ended on another groundout by Wiemer.

The Rattlers loaded the bases on two walks and single to start the bottom of the seventh.  They got a run home on a fielder’s choice by Alex Hall.  Evans got the second out and turned the game over to Jackson Rose.

Rodríguez greeted Rose with a single to left-center to score two runs and the Rattlers were within one run.  Wisconsin reloaded the bases on a walk to Felix Valerio only to see Rose get out of the inning with a strikeout of Wiemer.

In the eighth, Wisconsin threatened again.  Zavier Warren singled and Freddy Zamora doubled to put runners on second and third with no outs.  Rose escaped the inning with a strikeout, a flyout to shallow center, and a strikeout.

The winning rally in the bottom of the ninth started on a double by Rodríguez and a walk to Felix Valerio against Eli Villalobos.  The hit by Rodríguez was his fourth of the game, his first four-hit game of the season.

That brought Wiemer back to the plate and he didn’t wait.  Wiemer lined the first pitch from Villalobos over the wall in left-center for the three-run, walkoff homer to send nearly 5,000 fans in attendance home very, very happy.

Three Wisconsin relievers combined to pitch four scoreless innings out of the bullpen.  Brady Schanuel worked two scoreless frames.  Evan Reifert struck out the side in order in the eighth.  Cam Robinson pitched a perfect top of the ninth.

The Rattlers bullpen covered 23 innings in the six-game series with the Snappers and allowed three earned runs as the team went 5-1 with four comeback wins, including three walkoff victories over their in-state rivals.

Wiemer has hit 21 homers this season.  His blast on Sunday was his eighth with the Timber Rattlers.  He had thirteen with the Carolina Mudcats before his promotion to the High-A Central League. 

Sunday was also Wiemer’s third walkoff homer of the season.  He hit walkoff homers for the Mudcats on August 5 and August 7.

 

The Timber Rattlers are off on Monday.  They return to action on Tuesday against the Cedar Rapids Kernels at Neuroscience Group Field.  Game time is 6:35pm.

 

OT goal gives Phoenix women's soccer second victory

The Green Bay Phoenix women's soccer team needed a little extra time to get past Chicago State on Sunday.

 

Mckayla Kertscher scored her first goal of the season in the eighth minute to give the Phoenix the early lead. The Cougars would score in the 69th minute and the game would stay there after 90 minutes of action. Emily Murphy sent the Phoenix back on the bus in a happy mood with her first goal of the season in the 93rd minute.

 

They will have a few days off before playing Northern Illinois on September 9th at 5 p.m. 

Brewers walk off in grand fashion

The game and the series were in doubt until Dan Vogelbach stepped in to pinch-hit in the Milwaukee Brewers' thrilling 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.

 

Before the bottom of the ninth inning, Pablo Reyes drove in the Brewers' only run with a solo shot in the second inning. The Cardinals would score three times in the fourth inning and add on another pair in the seventh inning to put the game seemingly out of reach. In the bottom of the ninth, Luke Maile started the rally with an RBI single to make it 5-2. A double and a walk later, Vogelbach in his return to the lineup took a 1-0 pitch to right field bleachers to give the Brewers the series win.

 

The Brewers' farm teams got into the fun as well with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers walking it off with a three-run homer and the Carolina Mudcats copying the Brewers' feat with a game-ending grand slam.

 

The Brewers will stay in town to face the Phillies with a first pitch of 1:10 p.m. Monday. 

Clippers winless in The Prairie

This weekend's matchups at The Prairie School proved to be just as tough as facing the host school for the Sturgeon Bay Clippers soccer team.

Cornerback tandem inducted into Packers Hall of Fame

Once looked at as one of the best bump-and-run tandems in football, Al Harris and Charles Woodson are now both immortalized in Green Bay Packer history. A Packers Hall of Fame introduction ceremony was held on Thursday to honor both. Harris played for Green Bay from 2003 to 2010, and his most memorable play came in the 2003 wild card matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, when he intercepted a Matt Hasselback pass in overtime and returned it for a game-winning touchdown. Charles Woodson spent from 2006-2012 as a Packer and was also enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame in August. Woodson was a leader for the 2010 Green Bay Packers Superbowl championship team.
