Tim Kowols, Quinn Struck, and Mary Witteborg -- A close game got out of hand late in Maplewood as the Washington Island Islanders pulled away from the Mets 20-3.

Rattlers Hold On To Beat Kernels and Earn Series Split

It wasn’t easy.  It wasn’t pretty.  However, it was a win and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 6-4 victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels Sunday afternoon at Perfect Game Field earned Wisconsin a split in the six-game series and pulled them back to within a game of the division leading Kernels.

 

The Timber Rattlers (28-17) scored a run in the first inning but missed out on a much bigger inning against Kernels starting pitcher Sean Mooney.  Tyler Black singled to start the game.  Mooney retired the next batter.  Then, walked the next three batters in a row.  A walk to Wes Clarke with the bases loaded allowed Black to cross the plate for a 1-0 lead.  Mooney struck out the next two batters to leave three Rattlers on base.

In the second, Wisconsin made something out of nothing with two outs and nobody on base.  Black and Carlos Rodríguez hit back-to-back solo homers off Mooney and the Rattlers were up 3-0.

Cedar Rapids (29-16) put the first two runners on base in the bottom of the second inning with a single and a hit batsman.  They had runners at the corners with two outs and Wisconsin starter Ryne Moore looked like he would get out of the inning.  However, he made an errant pickoff throw to first base and that allowed the runner from third to score the first run of the game for the Kernels.

Another throwing error, this one on a throw to second by Clarke on a stolen base attempt with runners at the corners in the third inning, allowed Anthony Prato to score from third to cut Wisconsin’s lead to one run.

Wisconsin answered in the top of the fourth.  Black walked with one out and Joe Gray Jr walked with two outs.  Tristan Peters fouled off two straight 2-2 pitches before launching a three-run home run to left and Wisconsin was up 6-2.

Prato hit a two-out solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning for the Kernels off Moore.  The Rattlers right-hander would

Moore allowed three runs – one earned – on five hits, no walks, two hit batsmen, and four strikeouts over six innings before turning the game over to the bullpen.

Joey Matulovich struck out a pair in a perfect bottom of the seventh.

Prato tripled to start the bottom of the eighth against James Meeker, but it took a two-out single by Jeferson Morales to get Prato across the plate.  Meeker got the final out of the eighth and stranded two runners.

Cam Robinson took over for Meeker to start the ninth inning against the bottom third of the Kernels order.  He hit Will Holland and gave up a single to Wander Javier.  The Kernels sent Christian Encarnacion-Strand, the Midwest League leader in RBI, to the plate as a pinch-hitter as the winning run, but Robinson got him to fly out to center for the first out.  Then, Robinson walked Prato to load the bases.

The crowd got really revved up when Robinson ran the count full on Seth Gray before Robinson struck him out for the second out.  That brought Aaron Sabato to the plate.

Sabato had tormented the Timber Rattlers throughout the series.  He had doubled earlier in the game, homered in each of the last two games, and collected eight RBI in the first five games of the series.  That was who stepped in as the last chance for the Kernels. 

Robinson missed with the first pitch and Sabato fouled off the next two.  That set up Robinson to freeze Sabato for a called third strikeout to end the game and pick up his ninth save of the season.  It wasn’t easy, but Robinson extended his scoreless streak to 15-1/3 innings.  He has not allowed a run since April 28.

Wisconsin is one game behind the Kernels in the first half Western Division standings.  Sunday was the final meeting of the half between the top two teams in the division.  There are 21 games left in the half.

 

The Timber Rattlers are off on Monday.  They return to action with game one of a homestand against the Peoria Chiefs on Tuesday night at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Justin Jarvis (3-2, 4.50) is the scheduled starting pitcher for Wisconsin.  Peoria has named Zane Mills (0-1, 7.20) as their starting pitcher.  Game time is 6:40pm.

Sabato Socks Wisconsin

Cedar Rapids Kernels first baseman Aaron Sabato’s three-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning snapped a 3-3 tie and sent the Kernels to an 8-3 win over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Saturday night at Perfect Game Field.  Sabato has eight RBI in the series against Wisconsin.  All of Wisconsin’s runs scored on solo homers

 

Tyler Black had the first solo shot, a lead-off homer in the top of the first inning, to put the Timber Rattlers (27-17) up 1-0.

The Kernels (29-15) took the lead in the bottom of the second inning.  Wisconsin starting pitcher Antoine Kelly walked the leadoff batter and hit the next Kernel before getting the next two outs.  Will Holland was next for Cedar Rapids and he lined a triple to right-center to score both runners.  A wild throw to third wound up in the Rattlers dugout to let Holland score on the play to give the Kernels a 3-1 advantage.

Wisconsin (27-17) used the long ball to get the game back to even.  Wes Clarke hit a lead-off home run in the top of the fourth.  Tristan Peters cracked a two-out homer in the top of the fifth.

Cedar Rapids went back in front in the bottom of the fifth.  Sabato hit a three-run home run to right-center with one out and the Kernels we up 6-3.  Sabato has seven hits, including two homers, in the first five games of this series.  He has six of his hits in the three wins by his team in the series.

Alerick Soularie added to the Kernels lead with a one-out, solo home run in the bottom of the sixth.

The Kernels added one more run with a sacrifice fly by Soularie in the bottom of the eighth.

The home run by Sabato was the first allowed by Kelly this season.  The Wisconsin left-hander went the first 43-2/3 innings of the year without giving up a homer.  Kelly had seven strikeouts, allowed four hits, and walked four over 4-2/3 innings to get tagged with the loss in this game.

Saturday’s loss knocked Wisconsin two games behind the Kernels in the first half Western Division playoff race.  There are 22 games remaining in the first half of the season.

 

The series finale is set for Sunday afternoon at Perfect Game Field.  Ryne Moore (0-2, 16.71) is the scheduled starting pitcher for Wisconsin.  The Kernels have named Sean Mooney (1-0, 1.04) as their starting pitcher.  Game time is 2:05pm.

Timber Rattlers Tighten Division Race with Win at Cedar Rapids

The Cedar Rapids Kernels outhit the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 10-8 on Friday night at Perfect Game Field.  However, it was the Rattlers who got the key hits and the key outs when they needed them to defeat the first place Kernels.

 

Wisconsin (27-16) scored in the second inning for the early lead.  Tristan Peters singled, stole second, and took third on a fly ball to right.  Darrien Miller smashed a single off the glove of Aaron Sabato at first base to score Peters.

Sabato hit a lead-off home run in the bottom of the fourth for the Kernels (28-15) to tie the score 1-1.

The homer by Sabato broke Wisconsin starting pitcher Brandon Knarr’s scoreless inning streak at 16-1/3 innings.

The Timber Rattlers offense responded in the top of the fifth inning with a four-run outburst.  Ethan Murray started the inning with a single.  Then, Micah Bello launched a home run to left.  Bello’s first Midwest League home run gave the Rattlers a 3-1 lead.  Later in the inning, Peters tripled off the wall in right-center with two outs to score two runs and Wisconsin was up 5-1.

The Kernels stormed back in the bottom of the fifth against Knarr as they loaded the bases with no outs on a single, a double, and a walk.  Knarr got the first out but gave up a two-run single to Christian Encarnacion-Strand and another walk to reload the bases.

Knarr regrouped and got a strikeout and a flyout to end the inning.  Knarr allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts and left with the lead to put himself in position for a win in his seventh consecutive start.

Wisconsin caught a break in the top of the sixth and made the most of it.  Murray was at first base with one out and was running on a pitch to Bello, who sent a soft popup to Sabato at first.  Sabato caught the ball and stepped on first for an apparent inning-ending double play.  However, catcher’s interference was called to put Bello at first and Murray at second.

A wild pitch by Kernels reliever Tyler Palm moved both runners up a base.  A second wild pitch let Murray score and moved Bello to third.  Then, Jadher Areinamo, who was making his Timber Rattlers debut as the starting second baseman, doubled to center to score Bello and the Rattlers were up 7-3.

 

Kent Hasler was the first reliever out of the Wisconsin bullpen.  He pitched a scoreless sixth and seventh inning with no hits, a walk, and three strikeouts.

Cam Robinson closed out the game with two scoreless innings from the Rattlers pen.  He allowed two hits, struck out two, and extended his personal scoreless innings streak to 14-1/3 innings.

The win pulled Wisconsin back to within one game of the Kernels for the Western Division lead.  Additionally, the South Bend Cubs beat the Great Lakes Loons 11-4 on Friday night.  The Cubs are in third place in the division and trail the Kernels by two games.  There are 23 games remaining in the first half of the season with the division winner clinching a Midwest League playoff berth.

Knarr picked up the win and he is 7-1 in nine starts this season.  He leads the Midwest League in wins.

Knarr pitches six scoreless for sixth win as offense cracks 14 hits

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.

Big innings give Eagles win over Vikings on 105.1 The GOAT

A pair of four-run innings and a great pitching performance from Christian Counard was all the Southern Door Eagles needed to beat the Gibraltar Vikings Friday night 8-2 in Fish Creek.

 

The Vikings were able to get base runners on in every inning but the sixth against the Eagles' pitching, only to be denied by the arms of Christian Counard and Charlie Neinas along with sound defense behind them. Counard struck out five over his five innings pitched while allowing a handful of hits. Neinas struck out four in his two innings of work.

 

The Eagles scored four in the third inning with with a hit by pitch registering the first run and a single by Neinas driving in some additional Eagles.

Jack Peterson and Tyler Neinas also had two hits. 

 

Kita would come around to score again in the fifth inning to make it an 8-2 ballgame. Sam Lindenberg had four hits in the game for the Vikings while Kita also had multiple hits in the loss.

Soccer Round-Up: Clippers Soccer team edges Vikineers at Baileys Harbor on The Clipper

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers Girls Soccer team traveled to Baileys Harbor on Thursday night, and after a slight delay due to lightning in the area, the girls picked up the win.

 

It was an exciting first half, and the Sevastopol/Gibraltar Vikineers had opportunities in the first half, including a penalty kick after a foul occurred just inside the 18-yard box. The PK ended up going just high of the goal. After a few halftime adjustments, the Clippers came out strong in the second half and were able to grab the go-ahead goal in the 63rd minute. Emma Reichel had the game's only goal, which was enough for Clippers to leave Bailey's Harbor with the victory. Last night was Parent's night for the Vikineers.

England calling Packers this week

A pair of Packers-related announcements this week will have a decidedly British tone.

 

WLUK in Green Bay reported last week that Monday will be the day the organization potentially confirms its plans to host a soccer exhibition between Manchester City and Bayern Munich. Rumors about the contest began in March, but all the Packers have said is they are planning a major announcement for Monday and that participants in the event will be present. Both soccer clubs have announced plans for games in the United States.

 

The NFL announced last month that May 4th will be when its international slate of games will be announced. The Packers will play at the home of Tottenham Hot Spur against a yet-to-be-named opponent. The international contest will cost the Packers a home game, something the organization hopes the soccer exhibition will be able to replace.
