Another day, another Timber Rattlers game.
It was an overcast afternoon and fairly cool. Not the greatest weather for baseball.
The guys were up against the Lake County Captains, who took an early lead in the top of the first.
The giveaway for this game was a baseball, celebrating twenty five years of Timber Rattlers baseball. Also included in this picture, a Whiffer Waffle and my Helmet cheese fries. (Cheese fries are ballpark food kryptonite for me.)
It wasn’t exactly busy, as you can tell by the front gate. But we had a decent amount of people in the Club this time.
The Timber Rattlers managed to tie it at the bottom of the fifth, making it a one to one game. But the Captains pulled ahead, due to some extremely bad pitching from the Timber Rattlers. The bases were loaded at least twice in the top of the sixth and two runs were walked in by two different pitchers. Not a great showing by any means.
The TRats did manage to get a run in the bottom of the eighth, making it a three run game, but left the bases loaded.
Final score: Lake County Captains – 6 Wisconsin Timber Rattlers – 3.
