The only thing I can say about that Timber Rattlers game: Weird.
Nick Shaw was taking walks and Jimmy Nelson was handing them out. I put in the starters of all the games into the highlights because people are interested in the org's starting pitching, but none of the Wisconsin pitchers did anything useful at all in that ballgame. Thomas Keeling didn't give up any runs, but that was a lucky break--he allowed 4 baserunners. Ugh.
