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.


The Brewers would tack on another five insurance runs in the eighth inning with Hunter Renfroe singling home two runs and then coming around to score when Tyrone Taylor hit a three-run homer.

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.

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.
