Thursday's Daily Menu:

All times are Central

Nashville: RHP Mike Fiers at Las Vegas (Blue Jays), 8:50 PM pre-game, 9:05 gametime

Free Live Audio Link

Jeff Hem is the new play-by-play voice of the Sounds; follow him on Twitter @jeffhempbp; we'll link to his blog updates at On the Air…and Off

MiLB.TV -- for subscribers; all Nashville games, home and away, will be available to watch via MiLB.TV's $39.99 season-long package ($9.99 to pay for a single month). We imagine the audio feed is from the home team. All MiLB.TV details available at the link.

**********

Huntsville: RHP Tyler Thornburg at home vs. Birmingham (White Sox), 6:28 PM pre-game, 6:43 gametime

Free Live Audio Link -- Select the Huntsville feed from the MiLB main audio page

I-Phone friendly audio link

Alex Cohen is the new play-by-play voice of the Stars; follow him on Twitter @alexmcohen. It's fantastic that Huntsville is returning to what will be a traditional broadcast format this year. All games, home and away, are scheduled to be broadcast.

MiLB.TV subsciption note: A total of 24 Stars' games (in Jacksonville and Tennessee) will be broadcast.

**********

Brevard County: RHP Brandon Williamson at Charlotte (Rays), 5:30 PM gametime

Free Live Audio Link -- Select the Charlotte feed from the MiLB main audio page

Once again this season, Brevard does not have its own audio coverage. It appears two teams in the Manatees North Division (within which the majority of games are played) have audio, and all six teams in the South Division have audio (at least for their home games), so there will be opportunities to listen to approx. 70% or Brevard's games this season, just all from the opponent's perspective. There are no Florida State League games on MiLB.TV this year.

***

Wisconsin: RHP Drew Gagnon at Quad Cities (Cardinals), 6:40 PM pre-game, 7:00 gametime

Free Live Audio Link - 1280 AM WNAM

Chris Mehring is back to do his customary fantastic work as the Voice of the Rattlers. Follow him on Twitter @CMehring; we'll link to Chris' infamous blog often -- Rattler Radio.

MiLB.TV -- for subscribers; Wisconsin is one of only two (Great Lakes) Midwest League clubs that have all their home games available via MiLB.TV; Chris' call provides the audio. So for the $39.95 season-long package, fans in Brewer Nation can watch all Sounds games, all Timber Rattlers home games, and 24 Stars' road games (one Helena series this summer, too).

Just a huge night for Mike Fiers tonight. If he pitches well, he lines up on normal rest for Tuesday's start in Los Angeles for Marco Estrada.

We'll be listening late tonight, Jeff!

(After sampling the earlier games as well, Chris & Alex...)

Nick Ramirez tweets that catcher Cameron Garfield, the 2009 2nd round pick who missed most of 2011 with a dislocated patella in his left knee, will be joining the Timber Rattlers, probably as soon as Friday. We'll add it to the transaction thread once official.

The T-Rats get even more talented. Nice to see, especially after the 2011 version.

I'm thinking next week will be time to make my first visit to Fox Cities Stadium this season. This team is too good to not go see play.

Be careful, with the two-week road trip, you won't see them until June 6th the earliest...

Hey, maybe I meant I was going to go to FC Stad. & ask them to play the away game on the big screen!

I didn't, but maybe that's what I meant...

Can anyone connect to WNAM over the internet or is this some sort of weird Roadrunner problem I'm experiencing?

Via Jeff Hem:

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds reliever Donovan Hand, who discusses his relief win last night, the Brewers’ trade Thursday involving catcher Paul Phillips, the ballparks and cities of the PCL, pitching close to home (Alabama) and the “candy bag” that keeps the Sounds’ bullpen full during games…

I'm posting this almost two hours after the earlier posts, but the Wisconsin WNAM audio link is working now (5-5 game in the 5th). The problem you described earlier has been an issue off and on recently.

Chris always appreciates a tweet @CMehring or an email to RattlerRadio at TimberRattlers.com to give him a heads-up when you encounter a technical issue. He'll contact engineers to investigate and correct.

Thursday's game between the Charlotte Stone Crabs and Brevard County Manatees was cancelled due to inclement weather at Charlotte Sports Park.

***

The game will not be made up (last scheduled meeting in the first-half schedule).

The teams did play 3.5 scoreless innings.

Partial Box Score

Losing out is RHP Brandon Williamson, who allowed just one hit and no walks.

Benefiting is the 'Tees lineup, which was 0-for-11 with one walk and a caught stealing (T.J. Mittelstaedt). Nick Shaw also had his 10th error wiped out by the cancellation.

You'll see the recap later on, but the Stars hold on for a 4-3 win, when Birmingham tried to score not just one, but two, runs, on a Jesus Sanchez bases-loaded wild pitch in the 9th inning.

Can't get greedy, Barons -- man from 2nd out at home. Game over!

Alex Cohen with a nice call on the play, but the webcast signal was very weak, cranked up the PC volume all the way to just make it out.

Not a stellar night on the engineering broadcast side of things.

***

That being said, the Sounds broadcast is crystal clear but Mike Fiers was not:

Las Vegas Bottom of the 1st

Anthony Gose singles on a sharp ground ball to second baseman Eric Farris.
With Adeiny Hechavarria batting, Anthony Gose steals (17) 2nd base.

Adeiny Hechavarria walks.
With Adam Lind batting, passed ball by Martin Maldonado, Anthony Gose to 3rd.
With Adam Lind batting, Anthony Gose scores on a balk. Adeiny Hechavarria advances to 2nd on a balk.
Adam Lind homers (3) on a fly ball to right field. Adeiny Hechavarria scores.
Travis d'Arnaud homers (8) on a fly ball to right field.

Ricardo Nanita flies out to center fielder Logan Schafer.
Moises Sierra walks.
Danny Perales strikes out swinging.
With Mike McCoy batting, Moises Sierra caught stealing 2nd base, catcher Martin Maldonado to second baseman Eric Farris.
