You might recall that I took in a baseball game last night. Well, Prime had a pair of unused tickets, so he traded them in last night for a pair to tonight’s game.
A quick trip to the mound. The Rattlers got off to a shaky start, allowing a home run and an RBI in the top of the third gave the River Bandits the lead.
We had a pretty decent threat in the bottom of the third, with one in scoring position and only one out but the River Bandits quashed it fairly quickly.
A mound visit/pitching change in the top of the sixth. There were runners at the corners for the River Bandits and no outs. Although the TRats were able to get a pair out, the Bandits plated two more runs, widening the lead. Mercifully, the inning did finally end, but the damage was done.
Final score: Quad Cities River Bandits – 4
Wisconsin Timber Rattlers – 0
But all was not lost. At least we had fireworks after the game.
