The Kolberg Braves only needed seven innings to defeat the Institute Cubs on Sunday afternoon, 19-2.

Glory beat Berber City to Improve to 3-0

The Green Bay Glory men's team is off to a hot start in their inaugural season.  After the Sunday afternoon match that saw it's fair share of delays, the Glory improved to 3-0 and a +10 goal differential.

 

The Glory would jump out to an early lead when, in the 11', Ethan Dietrich sent a shot across the goal past a diving goalkeeper Jack Strogen, that deflected off the right post into the goal. No more goals were scored in the first half, but the game hit an eleven minute delay when a ball off the foot of William Smested, which came just after a whistle, caught the main referee in the head, leading to her needing medical attention. The kick earned Smeasted a yellow card when play resumed.

 

The Glory struck early again in the second half when at the 49' Ethan Dietrich sent a corner kick in to Ben Omirnik, which Omernik headed into the back of the net for a two-nothing lead. The game would then hit its second long delay when a lightning strike nearby sent the game into what amounted to a nearly 45-minute weather delay. 

 

After the delay, Ethan Dietrich would continue his big day putting another goal in the back of the net in the 70'. Green Bay's scoring was not done yet as Tommy Geocaris would put a goal into net in extra time giving the Glory the 4-0 victory with Hakkon Utesch shutting out Berber City's offense.

 

The Glory's next game will come Wednesday night when the men play the first game of a doubleheader, taking on FDL FC.  Game two, the Glory women will open their season against North shore. Those games will take place at UWGB.

The Ports threatened in the ninth inning as Drew Tanck doubled with one out and advanced to third base on a deep fly ball by Woody Schartner who narrowly missed a walk-off two-run home run.  Carter Bieri then lined out to second base to end the game before the rains came.

 

 

 

Jandrin went three innings in relief of starter Jeremiah Jahnke and picked up the win while striking out three for the Mets who improved to 3-0 in the DCL.

Wisconsin's Rally Falls Short in South Bend

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers trailed 4-0 after six innings on Thursday night at Four Winds Field in their game against the South Bend Cubs.  The Rattlers rallied with within a run but left the tying run on second in the top of the ninth and missed a few other opportunities in the contest.

Both starting pitchers – Will Rudy for Wisconsin and Nick Dean for South Bend – were on their game as each team had one hit through the first three innings.

 

South Bend (16-26) scored twice in the bottom of the fourth inning.  Pedro Ramirez tripled to start the inning.  Jefferson Rojas knocked in Ramirez with a single.  Later in the frame, Reivaj Garcia drove in Rojas with a single.


The Timber Rattlers (27-15) had one hit off Dean, who was making his South Bend debut, in five innings.  Dean walked none and struck out five while facing the minimum thanks to a caught stealing in the second inning


There was a key sequence of events in the sixth inning.  Wisconsin had runners at second and third with one out against reliever Angel Gonzalez after two walks and a passed ball.  However, the Rattlers could not score to cut into the Cubs lead as Gonzalez got a strikeout and a flyout to end the threat.

In the bottom of the sixth, South Bend had runners at second and third with no outs against reliever Brian Fitzpatrick after a single and an error on Luke Adams.  Jonathan Long drove in both runners with a one-out single and the Cubs went up 4-0.

Wisconsin had Tyler Santana, the third Cubs pitcher, on the ropes in the seventh inning as they loaded the bases with no outs on a single by Jadher Areinamo, a walk to Adams, and a single by Matt Wood.  Tayden Hall was next, and he sent a fly ball to center that was deep enough to score Areinamo.  However, Adams tried to tag on the play, too and he was thrown out at third on a strong throw from Brett Bateman.  Wisconsin didn’t score again in the seventh.

In the eighth, Terence Doston walked on four pitches against Santana.  Jheremy Vargas, who had walked in the sixth, swung at the first pitch from Santana and grounded into a 5-4-3 double play.

The Rattlers didn’t stop trying to comeback in the eighth.  Gregory Barrios and Dylan O’Rae both singled to keep the inning alive.  Then, Areinamo lined a double to the wall in left to score both runners to pull Wisconsin to within a run.

In the ninth, Wood had a lead-off single against Carlo Reyes.  A weak grounder up the first base line moved Wood into scoring position with the tying run.  However, Reyes got the final two batters of the game on a flyout and a strikeout to secure the Cubs second win of the three games played in the series.

The Timber Rattlers left five runners on base and were 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position on Thursday night.

The Cedar Rapids Kernels beat the Peoria Chiefs 8-5 on Thursday.  The Kernels win moved them to within a half-game of the first place Timber Rattlers in the first half West Division playoff race.  There are 24 games remaining in the first half.

 

Game four of the series is Friday night at Four Winds Field.  Logan Henderson has been named as the Wisconsin starting pitcher and is making his Midwest League debut.  The Cubs have announced Drew Gray (0-1, 3.38) as their starter.  Game time is 6:05pm CDT.

Kuehner Ks Eight in Wisconsin Win

Tate Kuehner was given an early lead on Wednesday morning at Four Winds Field, and he wasn’t going to let it go.  The Wisconsin left-hander set new professional, single-game highs for strikeouts and innings pitched in Wisconsin’s 4-2 victory over the South Bend Cubs.

 

Wisconsin (27-14) took advantage of two South Bend errors to score twice in the first inning.  Jadher Areinamo was at second and Gregory Barrios at first with two outs and Matt Wood at the plate.  Areinamo stole third and scored when the throw sailed into left field.  Barrios, who took second on the play, would score moments later when shortstop Jefferson Rojas booted Wood’s grounder to short.

 

Areinamo was in the mix again in the second inning as the Rattlers doubled their lead.  Eduarqui Fernández started the inning with a triple and Dylan O’Rae walked with one out.  Then, Areinamo lined 1-1 pitch to center.  Brett Bateman made a diving attempt for a catch, but the ball glanced off his glove to the warning track.  Both runners scored on Areinamo’s double.


Kuehner took that 4-0 lead and ran with it.  He struck out six South Bend batters in a row as he struck out the side in order in both the third and fourth inning.  He gave up a lead-off single to Jonathan Long in the fifth inning, but a double play erased Long.  Kuehner recorded his eighth strikeout to conclude his five scoreless innings and turned a 4-0 lead over to the bullpen. 

The only two hits Kuehner allowed were singles to Long.  The only walk he issued was to the first batter he faced in the game, and he was also erased on a double play.

South Bend (15-26) could not take advantage of two walks by reliever Yerlin Rodriguez in the sixth inning.  However, two more walks by Rodriguez to start the seventh inning were followed by a bloop hit from Long to load the bases.  Wisconsin got the first out of the inning when Dylan O’Rae made a diving stop of a grounder off the bat of Ethan Hearn for a put out at first base with a run scoring on the play.

Chase Costello was called in from the Wisconsin bullpen and got the second out on a strikeout before issuing a walk to reload the bases.  Costello escaped the jam on a routine grounder to O’Rae.

In the eighth, Costello got the first two outs before Jefferson Rojas singled to extend the inning.  Felix Stevens worked the count full and ripped a double to left to score Rojas.

Craig Yoho was the next man up for the Rattlers and he would walk Long, who was 3-for-3 on the afternoon.  Yoho walked Long on four pitches to bring the go-ahead run to the plate, but he bounced back to strike out Hearn to end the inning with the bases loaded.

In the bottom of the ninth, there was no drama as Yoho retired the Cubs in order to collect his seventh save of the season.

Wisconsin stranded twelve runners and was 1-for-14 with runners in scoring position.  The defense was flawless with their 27th errorless game of the season, including two key double plays.

The Rattlers are 14-4 in day games this season after their win on Wednesday.

 

Game three of the series at Four Winds Field is Thursday night.  Will Rudy (1-3, 6.43) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers.  Nick Dean, who will be making his Midwest League debut, has been announced as the starting pitcher for the Cubs.  Game time is 6:05pm CDT.

Mets Survive Islander Pressure on 105.1 The GOAT

The Washington Island Islanders applied pressure all day against the Maplewood Mets, but the Mets came out on top in a 1-2 battle Sunday in Door County Baseball Action. Runs were hard to come by for both teams, as runners reached base in every half-inning from the top of the first through the fifth inning. 

 

In the bottom half of the 5th inning, Mark Villers, who reached on a leadoff walk, came around and scored after a sacrifice by Kody Kissinger and an RBI single by Adam Gutschow, which plated the day's first run. Tory Jandrin, who took over the mound in the top of the 5th, turned the Islanders away in order in the 6th. In the bottom of the 6th, Zach Marchant hit what would end up being the game-winning run with a home run to left field.

 

The Islanders would not go away quietly and would answer in the top of the 7th when leadoff hitter Troy Jorgenson reached on a single, eventually coming home on a throwing error by the Mets pitcher.  Entering the 9th inning, the Islanders still trailed 1-2 but would end up loading the bases.  Islander Ben Johnson would come to the plate with two outs and bases loaded, but Mets closer Jayden Diller would get him to pop out to Kordel Draves at first base to end the inning.  

 

Final lines are The Mets move to 2-0 on 2 R, 5 H, 1 E, 8 LOB, while the Islanders fall to 0-2 on 1 R, 6 H, 0 E, 10 LOB.  Next week's featured game on 105.1 the Goat and New Radio Sports Network will be Maplewood @ West Jacksonport.

Wisconsin Closes Out Series With 5-3 Win over Beloit

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers beat the Beloit Sky Carp 5-3 on Sunday afternoon at Neuroscience Group Field.  The Rattlers jumped to a 5-0 lead and withstood a rally from the visitors thanks to two scoreless innings from the bullpen.

 

Milwaukee Brewers left-hander DL Hall made a brief and effective rehabilitation start for the Timber Rattlers.  He worked a 1-2-3 top of the first inning with one strikeout and needed eleven pitches for his day.

 

Jesús Chirinos, who hit the three-run walkoff home run on Saturday, put Wisconsin up 2-0 with a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the second inning on Sunday.

The Timber Rattlers added to their lead in the bottom of the fifth inning by scoring three runs on one hit.  Jheremy Vargas reached on a fielder’s choice by beating the throw to first on a potential double play ball.  Dylan O’Rae walked and Jadher Areinamo singled to load the bases.  Gregory Barrios sent a towering fly deep to the left field corner.  The ball was caught on the warning track with Vargas scoring and O’Rae moving to third.  The throw into the cutoff man got away for an error to allow Areinamo to take second base.

Luke Adams was at the plate with two outs when Alex Williams threw a pitch in the dirt that trickled away from catcher Cameron Barstad.  O’Rae broke for the plate and scored with Barstad’s throw getting by Williams and rolling back up the third baseline.  Areinamo, who was already at third saw the opening and raced for the plate to score for a 5-0 lead.

Beloit got to reliever Edwin Jimenez in the top of the sixth.  Josh Zamora cracked a three-run homer with one out to cut Wisconsin’s lead to two runs.  Jimenez retired the next two batters and pitched a scoreless seventh inning.  He allowed three runs over six innings of relief with two walks and six strikeouts to put himself in line for his sixth win of the season.

Wisconsin’s bullpen denied the Sky Carp a comeback on Sunday.  Chase Costello pitched a perfect eighth with one strikeout.  Craig Yoho worked around a two-out walk to pitch a scoreless ninth for his sixth save of the season.

The Timber Rattlers offense only struck out four times in Sunday’s game.  They struck out just 30 times in the six-game series.

The Rattlers took five of six from the Sky Carp in the series and maintain a 1-1/2 game lead over the Cedar Rapids Kernels in the West Division of the Midwest League.  The Kernels have won seven in a row and completed a six-game sweep of the Quad Cities River Bandits on Sunday with a 5-3 win.

 

The Timber Rattlers are off on Monday.  They return to action with a return to Four Winds Field in South Bend, Indiana for the start of a six-game series with the South Bend Cubs.  Mark Manfredi (1-0, 3.57) is the scheduled starting pitcher for Wisconsin.  The Cubs have named Aaron Perry (0-1, 1.23) as their starting pitcher.  Game time is 5:05pm CDT.

Chirinos Blasts Rattlers Past Beloit

Jesús Chirinos saved the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers from a tough defeat at the hands of the Beloit Sky Carp on Saturday afternoon at Neuroscience Group Field.  Beloit rallied from a 5-0 deficit to take a 7-5 lead in the top of the ninth.  Then, Chirinos played the hero by cracking a three-run, walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth to send the Rattlers to an 8-7 victory.

 

The Rattlers (25-13) had the lead from almost the very start of the game.  Luis Lara reached on an error to start the bottom of the first inning and Wisconsin made the Sky Carp pay for the miscue.  Beloit starter Ike Buxton hit Dylan O’Rae to put two runners on base.  Gregory Barrios followed with a single to left to score Lara.  The throw home was off line and that allowed both O’Rae and Barrios to move into scoring position.

Matt Wood scored O’Rae and moved Barrios to third with a ground out.  Luke Adams drove in Barrios with a sacrifice fly for a 3-0 lead.

Alexander Cornielle, the Wisconsin starter, tossed five scoreless innings.  He allowed two hits, hit two batter, and struck out four.  In his last three starts, Cornielle has pitched eighteen shutout innings with seventeen strikeouts.

Barrios added with the Rattlers advantage with a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Beloit (18-19) started their comeback in the sixth inning against reliever KC Hunt as Jake DeLeo drove in a run with a two-out double.

Hunt pitched a perfect seventh but had issues finding the final out in the eighth.  The Sky Carp had runners on second and third with one out and Torin Montgomery grounded out to short to drive in one run.  DeLeo made it 5-3 with an RBI single.  Sam Praytor cut Wisconsin’s lead to a single run with a double to the gap in right-center.  Hunt got his fifth strikeout of the game to end the inning with the Rattlers still in the lead.

Yerlin Rodriguez, who was 5-for-5 in save opportunities coming into Saturday went out for the top of the ninth to face the top of the Beloit order.  He got the first out before giving up singles to Jake Thompson and Mark Coley II.  Josh Zamora, who had homered in the previous two games in the series, singled to right and it looked like the bases would be loaded with one out.  However, Eduarqui Fernández misplayed the ball to allow Thompson and Coley to score to give the Sky Carp a 6-5 lead.

Montgomery added an insurance run for Beloit with a two-out, infield single that trickled up the third base line to score Zamora from third.

The Timber Ratters had to come back in the bottom of the ninth against Josh Ekness, a right-hander with a high-90s fastball who had allowed just one run and struck out 24 in seventeen innings between the Florida State League and Midwest League this season.

Tayden Hall started the rally by drawing walk with one-out, only the fourth walk by Ekness this season.  Terence Doston kept the rally going when he dropped a single into center on a 1-2 pitch to set the stage for Chirinos.

Ekness got ahead of Chirinos with two quick strikes.  Then, he missed his location on his 0-2 pitch and Chirinos didn’t miss the opportunity.  Chirinos crushed the hanger out of the stadium for his second home run of the season to give Wisconsin an 8-7 victory.

The walkoff homer by Chirinos was the first by a Timber Rattler since Joey Wiemer hit a three-run walkoff home run to beat Beloit 7-5 on September 5, 2021.

The victory by the Rattlers clinched a series win over the Sky Carp with four wins in the first five games of the series with one game left between the teams this weekend.

 

Sunday afternoon is the series finale for the Rattlers and Beloit.  DL Hall is scheduled to make the start for the Timber Rattlers on a Major League rehabilitation assignment from the Milwaukee Brewers.  Alex Williams (1-2, 8.18) is set to start for the Sky Carp.  Game time is 1:10pm.

Comeback Rattlers Beat Beloit 4-2

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers fought their way back from an early 2-0 deficit to beat the Beloit Sky Carp Friday night at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Yujanyer Herrera pitched four scoreless innings of relief to allow the Rattlers to hang around before managing to manufacture enough offense for the win.


Josh Zamora put Beloit (18-18) in front in the second inning with a home run for the second game in a row.  Wisconsin starting pitcher Brian Fitzpatrick walked the lead-off hitter in the inning.  Zamora, who hit a solo homer in the second inning on Thursday, cracked a two-run homer on Friday night to give the Sky Carp a 2-0 lead.

Wisconsin (24-13) staged a two-out rally in the bottom of the third to get on the scoreboard.  Dylan O’Rae walked and stole second.  Jadher Areinamo doubled to the corner in left to score O’Rae and bring the Rattlers to within a run.  However, the inning ended with two Rattlers on base.

The Rattlers loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the fourth inning but did not score after a 5-2-3 double play and a grounder to short.  Wisconsin also left two runners aboard in the fifth.

Fitzpatrick settled in after the home run by Zamora to work five innings.  He allowed four hits, walked two, and struck out three before giving way to Herrera.

Eduarqui Fernández doubled with one out in the bottom of the sixth and Jheremy Vargas, who hit into the double play in the fourth, drove Fernández home with a single to tie the score.

The game turned in the seventh inning.  In the top of the seventh, Beloit had runners at second and third with no outs against Herrera after a lead-off single by Jake DeLeo and a double by Osiris Johnson.  Herrera got the first out on a line out to Luis Lara in center that wasn’t deep enough for DeLeo to attempt to tag and score.  The second out Herrera striking out Jake Thompson.  Mark Coley II grounded out to Tayden Hall at first for the final out to keep the game tied.

In the bottom of the seventh, O’Rae walked and stole second against Beloit reliever Xavier Meachem.  He was at third with two outs and Hall sent a weak grounder to first.  He was called safe on a close play at first with Meachem covering to take the throw.

Lara added an insurance run with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Herrera pitched around a one-out double by DeLeo in the ninth to close out the game.  He pitched four scoreless innings, scattered five hits, walked none, and struck out four to earn his first win of the season.

O’Rae was on base four times with two singles and two walks.  He also stole two bases and scored two runs for Wisconsin.

The Timber Rattlers took advantage of eight walks by Beloit pitching to win their third game of the four played in the series.

Blizzard look to defend home turf vs. Fighters

The Indoor Football League's top defense will try to defend the Resch Center on Saturday when the Frisco Fighters come to town to face the Green Bay Blizzard.

 

The Blizzard leads the league in points allowed, total sacks, and third-down completion percentage, among other statistical categories. Last weekend, that was in full display when the Blizzard beat the Tulsa Oilers 42-22, allowing them to less than 200 yards of total offense. Max Meylor nearly outgained the Oilers himself, throwing for 161 and rushing for another 29 en route to a five-touchdown afternoon. 

 

The Blizzard play the Oilers at 3:05 p.m. Saturday.

With new head coaches comes new coaching staffs, and Green Bay's newest leaders are wasting no time filling out those position.

 

On the women's side, the program has officially announced Allie LeClaire, Sarah Bronk, and Kate Peterson Abiad as assistant coaches on the staff. Bronk coached Karius and LeClaire as a member of Matt Bollant's staff and has stuck with the program since then.

On the men's side, Jon Rothstein reports that Doug Gottlieb has hired Kansas City's Aerick Sanders as an assistant coach. Sanders has also coached at Montana State, UNLV, and New Mexico State. If confirmed, he would join Jordan McCabe on the staff, who was kept on after former head coach Sundance Wicks hired him prior to his departure to Wyoming.

Wisconsin Win Streak Ends with Shutout Loss to Beloit

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers were looking to make it five wins in a row with a victory over the Beloit Sky Carp on Thursday Night at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Cade Gibson and his teammates had other ideas.  Gibson pitched seven scoreless innings with support from three home run and the Sky Carp beat the Rattlers 6-0.

 

Beloit (18-17) scored first for the third straight game of the series.  Josh Zamora hit a solo home run with one out in the top of the second inning for a 1-0 advantage.

Wisconsin starting pitcher Will Rudy retired the first two Sky Carp batters on two pitches in the third inning and it looked like the Rattlers hitters would get another crack at Gibson.  However, Yiddi Cappe fouled off three two-strike pitches and beat out an infield single to keep the inning alive.  Jake Thompson was next, and he singled to right on a 3-2 pitch.  Then, Mark Coley II hit a long homer on a 2-0 pitch.  Cameron Barstad followed with another long home run and the Sky Carp were up 5-0.

Osiris Johnson made it a 6-0 lead with a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth and neither team threatened for the remainder of the game.

Gibson needed 83 pitches to match his single-game high as a pro for innings.  The lefty allowed four hits, walked two, and struck out three over his seven innings.  Josh Ekness and Dale Stanavich both worked a scoreless inning out of the bullpen to hand Wisconsin its first shutout loss of the season.

Wisconsin (23-13) used a quartet of relievers to cover the final five innings after Rudy left the game.  Jake Polancic tossed a perfect fifth inning with two strikeouts.  Aaron Rund worked two scoreless innings with a walk and two strikeouts.  Tyler Wehrle pitched the eighth inning with three strikeouts and an infield single.  Craig Yoho pitched a 1-2-3 top of the ninth with two strikeouts.

Yoho has 31 strikeouts in sixteen innings pitched with the Rattlers this season.

The Sky Carp ended a six-game losing streak with their win on Thursday night.

A noon preseason game, three divisional games for Gold package season ticket holders, and four straight primetime games are some of the highlights revealed during Wednesday's schedule announcement.

 

With the unbalanced schedule, the Packers will host just one preseason game, a noon contest on August 24th against the Cleveland Browns. They will play nine regular-season games, including four straight in primetime beginning on Thanksgiving night against the Miami Dolphins. The other scheduling quirk that irked many season ticket holders was the distribution of Green package versus Gold package games. The gold package, which is primarily Milwaukee-based season ticket holders, traditionally gets the second and fifth home games. Due to the unbalanced schedule, the group also received the ninth home game. This year, that means contests against NFC North rivals Minnesota Vikings (9/29), Detroit Lions (11/3), and Chicago Bears (1/4 or 1/5). You can find the full schedule below:

 

 

 

Green Bay job a dream come true for Gottlieb

Doug Gottlieb hopes to prove the naysayers wrong by the time the team hits the court this fall. 

 

The Green Bay Athletics Department introduced Gottlieb as its 10th head men's basketball coach at a press conference on Wednesday. Chancellor Michael Alexander credited Athletic Director Josh Moon on his outside-the-box thinking on the hire, which almost occurred ahead of last season before Sundance Wicks won the job. 

 

Gottlieb spoke for approximately 35-40 minutes after he was introduced, reflecting on his time playing college basketball at Notre Dame and Oklahoma and his experiences. He began his press conference by telling a story about how he told his mom that he got the job.

Critics of the hire have pointed to his national sports talk show, which he will keep doing as the coach of the Phoenix, as a possible distraction. Gottlieb defended the decision, saying he had rid himself of other commitments and was open to dropping the show if he could not handle doing both. With three scholarships remaining to fill and several players wondering if they should dip their toes in the portal, Gottlieb asked for trust.

Gottlieb was named the coach shortly after Wicks opted to move back home to take the head coaching position at Wyoming.

Areinamo Gets an A+ for Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers beat the Beloit Sky Carp 3-1 on Wednesday afternoon at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Jadher Areinamo doubled in the tying run and scored a run in Wisconsin’s three-run fourth inning that put them ahead to stay.  Areinamo also contributed with some big defensive plays at third base to help the Rattlers to their fourth straight win.

 

Beloit (17-17) took the lead on a two-out, RBI single by Johnny Olmstead in the top of the fourth inning.  That was the only run allowed by Mark Manfredi, the Wisconsin starting pitcher who struck out six over four innings in the game.

Wisconsin (23-12) went in front with three runs in the bottom of the fourth and they needed one hit to do it.  Dylan O’Rae started the rally with a walk and moved to second on a wild pitch.  Luke Adams appeared to have grounded out to third for the second out, but Yiddi Cappe’s throw to first was wild and the Rattlers had runners on the corners when the dust settled after the play.  Areinamo cashed in O’Rae with a double to right to tie the game.

Then, Ram?n Rodríguez drew a walk to load the bases.  Eduarqui Fernández was next, and he hit a hard grounder to first.  Torin Montgomery fielded the ball cleanly but his throw to second base was wild.  Instead of an inning-ending double play, the ball wound up in left field.  Both Adams and Areinamo scored to put Wisconsin up 3-1.

The Wisconsin pitching and defense took over from that point.

Chase Costello entered the game for the top of the fifth and retired the Sky Carp in order.

Tate Kuehner relieved Costello to start the sixth inning and found himself in a sticky spot with runners at first and second with one out after a walk and a single.  Kuehner escaped the inning with the two-run lead intact with a strikeout and a stellar defensive play from Areinamo at third to take an RBI hit away from Olmstead.

The Sky Carp also had two on with two outs in the eighth inning with Olmstead at the plate.  Kuenher got out of the jam again.  This time Olmstead hit a line drive right to Adams at first base. 

Kuehner closed out the game with a 1-2-3 ninth inning – with a strikeout and two grounders to Areinamo – to give the Rattlers their ninth consecutive win over Beloit dating back to last season.  He allowed three hits and walked two with three strikeouts over four scoreless innings for the win.

 

Game three of the series is Thursday evening at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Will Rudy (1-2, 5.25) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Rattlers.  Beloit has named Cade Gibson (1-1, 3.96) as their starter.  Game time is 6:40pm CDT.

Green Bay set to hire Gottlieb as new men's basketball coach

UPDATE: The hiring is confirmed. He will be introduced on Wednesday

 

 

Only two days after its old coach left for Wyoming pastures, Green Bay is set to hire a familiar name for its latest head men's basketball vacancy.

 

Several outlets report that Green Bay is set to hire FOX Sports radio host Doug Gottlieb as its new head men's basketball coach after flirting with the opportunity last year.

 

The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Scott Venci suggests that Gottlieb could keep his radio duties and be the program's leader. Gottlieb said last year it was a sticking point in his pursuit of the position, saying on his radio show that he feels it would be good promotion for the program. His only previous coaching experience was as a member of the staff for the U.S. team at the Maccabiah Games held in Israel in 2009 and 2017. He made his name collegiately as a high-scoring guard at Oklahoma State after leaving Notre Dame due to a credit card stealing scandal.

 

No other details, including the specifics with his contract, have been released.
