Monday's Daily Menu:

All times are Central

Nashville: RHP Brian Baker at Memphis (Cardinals), 6:50 PM pre-game, 7:05 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 Kyle Heckathorn and TBD (likely RHP Hiram Burgos) in a doubleheader at Mobile (Diamondbacks), 4:50 PM pre-game, 5:05 gametime; each contest slated for seven innings

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: Huntsville road games in four locales (Mississippi, Tennessee, Jacksonville and Pensacola) will be broadcast.

**********

Brevard County: LHP Jed Bradley at home vs. Lakeland (Tigers), 5:35 PM gametime

Sorry, no audio for this series...

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 David Goforth at home vs. Beloit (Twins), 11:45 AM pre-game, 12:05 PM gametime; expect RHP Chad Pierce to be the tandem

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).

**********

DSL Brewers: at the DSL Tigers, 9:30 AM, although game data won't be available until late afternoon at the earliest

Via this Baseball America link, you'll note how hot Logan Schafer's been, hopefully the tweaked knee from Sunday is nothing.

Mobile Press-Register:

Several Huntsville Stars broke the boredom of a rainy day by slip-sliding in the outfield and on the infield tarp before Sunday's game, even videotaping some of it. But it didn't sit well with Mobile groundskeeper Caleb Adams, who brought Huntsville manager Darnell Coles out to show where the outfield grass was damaged. More possible bad blood between these two teams who already had a fracas Saturday night.

Now, boys...

Final: Wisconsin 8, Beloit 7

Not a rerun, Rivera gives Wisconsin a walkoff win
Rattlers shortstop drives in winning run for second day in a row
By Chris Mehring / Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

GRAND CHUTE, WI - This is getting to be a habit for Wisconsin Timber Rattlers shortstop Yadiel Rivera. For the second day in a row, Rivera delivered a walkoff hit for the Milwaukee Brewers Midwest League affiliate. On Monday, Rivera lined a single to left to score the winning run and break a 7-7 tie in an 8-7 win over the Beloit Snappers at Time Warner Cable Field. The hit completed a comeback from a 6-2 deficit and a three-game sweep for Wisconsin over their in-state rivals.

Rivera, who hit a three-run, walkoff home run in the bottom of the tenth in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Snapper, picked up on Monday where he left off on Sunday. He tripled to drive in Brandon Macias from first base in his first at bat on Monday. One out later, Nick Ramirez drove in Rivera with a single to left for a 2-0 lead.

Beloit (36-28) stormed back to take the lead in the top of the fifth inning. Rattlers starting pitcher David Goforth walked in the first two runs of the inning. Goforth got the second out of the inning, but gave up a grand slam to Miguel Sano and the Snappers went up 6-2. The home run was the fifteenth of the season for Sano, who leads the league in homers and RBI (49).

Cameron Garfield started Wisconsin's comeback in the bottom of the fifth inning with a two-run home run to left field. That cut Beloit's lead to two runs.

But, Jhon Goncalves hit a solo homer in the top of the seventh inning and made the score 7-4.

The Rattlers (41-23) came right back after the seventh inning stretch. Garfield singled with one out and John Dishon drew a walk against Beloit reliever AJ Achter. Achter got the second out of the inning with a strikeout, but he couldn't get the third out before the Rattlers tied the game. Macias lifted a high fly to left on a 2-1 pitch from Achter. The ball carried over the wall for a three-run homer to tie the game 7-7.

Beloit had an opportunity to take the lead in the top of the ninth. Chad Pierce walked Eddie Rosario with one out and Wisconsin called for closer Seth Harvey to come out of the bullpen. Harvey threw a wild pitch with Drew Leachman at the plate and Rosario took second base. The Rattlers decided to walk Leachman intentionally to bring Sano to the plate.

The strategy worked perfectly as Harvey got Sano to ground into an inning ending 1-6-3 double play to keep the game tied 7-7.

Dishon started the winning rally in the bottom of the ninth. He reached on a bunt single and took second on a wild throw by pitcher Corey Williams. Beloit got the first out on a strikeout to keep Dishon at second base. Then, they elected to walk Macias to set up the double play possibility with Rivera at short.

The strategy backfired on Beloit. Rivera smacked the first pitch from Williams past shortstop Tyler Grimes, who made a diving stab at the ball. The ball rolled into the left-centerfield gap as Dishon raced home with the winning run.

Monday was the last home game of the first half for the Rattlers. Wisconsin improved their home record to 25-10 on the season. Monday was also the seventh walkoff win of the season for the team.

Wisconsin clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2005 on Sunday. The win on Monday lowered their magic number to win the first half Western Division title to one. A Timber Rattlers win or a Beloit Snappers loss over the final six games of the half gives the Rattlers the division title.

Wisconsin ends the first half of the season with a six game road trip that starts Tuesday night in Clinton. Will West (1-1, 7.63) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers. The LumberKings have Brent Shankin (1-2, 3.71) as their scheduled starter. Game time is 7:00pm.

Tune in for the broadcast on AM1280,WNAM or timberrattlers.com starting with the Miller Lite Pregame Show at 6:40pm.

HOME RUNS:
BELOIT:
Miguel Sano (15th, grand slam in 6th inning off David Goforth, 2 out)
Jhon Goncalves (2nd, none on in 7th inning off Chad Pierce, 0 out)

WIS:
Cameron Garfield (1st, 1 on in 5th inning off Jason Wheeler, 0 out)
Brandon Macias (3rd, 2 on in 7th inning off AJ Achter, 2 out)

WP: Seth Harvey (4-0)
LP: Corey Williams (2-2)

TIME: 3:05
ATTN: 2,228

Wisconsin Box Score
Mass used "Relentless" in the thread title and that's the perfect adjective for this team. I thought the game was over twice, in the 5th and then in the 9th but the T-Rats just keep finding ways to win. David Goforth was... well... he's just kind of all over the place, and I didn't notice any appreciable difference from the last time I watched him pitch.

There was a sequence that caused the game to be temporarily delayed for discussion when David threw strike 1, then ball 1 that was almost uncatchable low and away, then strike 2, then ball 2 which was so high Garfield couldn't reign it in even though he jumped, then ball 3 which was in the exact same place as ball 1. The TV crew and scoreboard operator thought the count was 2-2 but the home plate ump and Beloit dugout had it right, I was thinking about how horrible the 3 balls were so I was surprised Erickson even came out of the dugout for discussion. Goforth was especially bad in that 5th inning with the bases loaded, I thought there was a glimmer of hope after the pop up but there was no way he was going to be able to put Sano away with breaking stuff when he wasn't throwing strikes to begin with. Predictably the Grand Slam was an absolute bomb.

Chad Pierce looked pretty good again and would have had an excellent outing without that one mistake pitch. I was completely against the intentional walk in the 9th to put 2 on with Sano at the plate, I was sure Sano was going to put the game out of reach. Seth Harvey made Erickson's strategy payoff yet again, Matt has pushed all the right buttons so far this season.

Cameron Garfield earned a ton of respect from me today, he had to work his butt off behind the plate chasing Goforth's stuff, threw behind 2 runners for huge POs, hit the HR that immediately swung some momentum back to the Rattlers after that horrible 5th, and went 2-4 in the game raising his BA to .310. Yadiel Rivera also had a big day going 3-5 with a RBI producing 3B as well as the walk off single. Brandon Macias had another excellent day going 2-4 with that HR and a BB, Ben McMahan went 2-4 also raising his BA to .310, and finally Jason Rogers smoked a double down the left field line. The T-Rats had 4 starters in the line-up today who finished the game with BAs over .300, I'm not sure that's happened this late in the season since they've been a Brewer's affiliate. The Rattlers played clean defense and turned 3 double plays in addition to the 2 POs from Garfield I mentioned earlier.

I've been going back and forth in regards to posting this most of the day because it feels like piling on, but here it is.

Top Pitching Performances Over The Weekend, June 8-10

Worst Game Score By A Prospect

Brewers righthander Mark Rogers followed a seven-shutout-innings performance last Tuesday with his worst start of the season yesterday, in which he allowed 10 runs on 11 hits in 3 1/3 innings for Triple-A Nashville. He struck out two, walked four and allowed two home runs.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Wily isn't the only AAA starter struggling, there's a whole slew of big name prospects struggling in AAA this season, weird year so far. Of course Peralta gets mentioned at the bottom.
PCL notes: Miller victimized by homers
League has found top Cards prospect's fastball to be hittable
By Chris Jackson / Special to MLB.com

Image
Shelby Miller is 4-4 with a 5.18 ERA through 12 starts this year for the Redbirds. (Allison Rhoades)

This was not how the season was supposed to go for Shelby Miller.

Players who are ranked as the No. 3 prospect in all of the Minor Leagues are not supposed to get battered around.

They are not supposed to take it on the chin in start after start.

Miller, who also ranks as the Cardinals' top prospect, has gone 4-4 with a 5.18 ERA in 12 starts for the Memphis Redbirds. He was a combined 11-6 with a 2.77 ERA in 25 starts between Double-A Springfield and Class A Advanced Palm Beach last season.

"It's simple, I'm giving up home runs. That's what it's been," Miller said. "That's the really the difference-maker. I've already given up 12 and last year I gave up four.

"I was looking at it earlier, I've given up nine earned runs in my last two starts and eight of them are due to home runs."

Miller said the majority of home runs have come off his fastball in hitters' counts.

"My fastball doesn't really get swung and missed at as much as it was in the lower levels," Miller said. "It's more fouled off. I can throw four of them in a row and it gets fouled off. Eventually the pitch count is going to rise up and I'm going to throw five innings instead of six or seven."

Miller struck out 170 batters in 139 2/3 innings last season and this year he has 63 in 57 1/3, but none of the strikeouts have come as easy in the PCL. He has completed six innings only twice in his last 10 outings.

"That's obviously something we've addressed, (but) you don't really notice it until you keep consistently having short and bad starts," he said.

Memphis manager Ron Warner said it has been tough for Miller to go away from wanting to strike everyone out and instead forcing hitters to put the ball in play.

"We preach pitch-to-contact, so we're not so much concerned about strikeouts and him getting swings and misses," Warner said. "We want him to put it in a good spot, keep it down and get ground balls, keep his pitch count down so he can go deep into games."

Despite the results, Miller has not allowed his struggles to devour all of his confidence.

"Hopefully my next (start) will turn it around," he said. "I think all I need is one momentum changer for my year so far. I think if I get one good start, I've had a couple good ones, but if I have one really good start and I go deep, I think that will boost my confidence a bit more and get the ball rolling."

Miller will get his chance today when he starts the Redbirds' series opener against the visiting Nashville Sounds.

In brief

Trouble brewing: Miller is hardly the only pitching prospect struggling in the PCL as Brewers No. 1 prospect Wily Peralta can attest to. The right-hander has gone 1-7 with a 6.60 ERA in 12 starts for Nashville, prompting Milwaukee to dispatch Minor League pitching instructor Lee Tunnel and player development director Reid Nichols to watch him. Peralta allowed three runs in six innings against Iowa on Thursday, not factoring into the decision after five straight losses.

Gone streaking: The RedHawks set a team record Thursday when they defeated New Orleans, 9-5, for their 14th straight victory in Oklahoma City. The RedHawks had lost three of four in Albuquerque before coming home and reeling off nine consecutive wins starting May 29 to add on to the five straight home wins from May 10-15. Alas, both streaks ended Friday at the hands of the Zephyrs, who prevailed 6-1.

Healthy Heath: Fresno closer Heath Hembree has had a rough year (5.06 ERA), but contracting strep throat, losing eight pounds and missing five days of action recently made things even worse. Hembree bounced back Friday night, retiring the side in order to earn his ninth save as the Grizzlies beat Las Vegas, 5-4. It was his first appearance since giving up three runs in one inning of a 7-1 loss to Salt Lake on June 2.

Final Game 1: Mobile 6, Huntsville 5 (7 Innings)

Huntsville Game 1 Box Score
Suspensions have been handed out for Saturday's night brawl though both teams are currently appealing so Alex wouldn't give any more details at this time. I would expect that all of the Stars players who were ejected will be getting some time off including Thornburg.

Kyle Heckathorn was alright as he only went 4IP allowing 5H, 1BB, and 0R against 1SO. He only threw 77 pitches, 47 for strikes and exited with a 4-0 lead. Unfortunately Brandon Kintzler and Jesus Sanchez combined for a horrible 6th allowing 5 runs between them though all 5 were charged to Kintzler. Sanchez returned for the 7th, gave up a double, was replaced by Mitch Stetter who allowed the game winning to run score on 2 wild pitches.

Scooter Gennett went 2-3 with a BB and 2 doubles, Kentrail Davis went 2-3 with a triple, Adam Weisenburger went 2-3 with a double in the contest, and Josh Prince added a HR. Gennett was caught stealing but Davis stole his 9th base and had a game saving OF assist. Domnit Bolivar committed 2 errors both fielding, he now has 11 on the season.

Huntsville Game 1 Play By Play
The Stars jumped out early with a big 2nd.

Is it wrong that when I looked at the Nashville box and saw opposing pitcher Shelby Miller had given up 2 more HRs I laughed?

Lakeland (Tigers) 6 Brevard County 5

Box Score

Brevard with a tough loss in extras, but there is a lot to digest in the box score. Let's start with Jed Bradley. His line shows only 3 ER, but in reality, one of those unearned runs was his fault too due to an error on a pickoff attempt. He also had more walks than K's and more hits than IP. On the bright side, he got 14 GB outs and successfully picked off another. I am really not sure what to make of the "new" Bradley. One thing that crossed my mind; Jimmy Nelson had many lines similar to tonight's by Bradley before he really broke out. Old buddy Eric Arnett appeared again tonight and threw a scoreless inning. His season ERA stands at 2.21. Arnett has been pretty much lights out since the start of May. Casey Medlen continued to show strike out stuff (3 in 2 IP), but he gave up the deciding runs in this one. 36 K and 6 BB in 27 IP for Casey.

Michael Reed (1-3 2 BB) was on base 3 more times today. He is not driving the ball, but it is hard to complain about what this 19 year old is doing. T.J. Mittelstaedt (2-4 BB SB (11)) stayed hot. Reggie Keen also went 2-4 with a BB and a SB (20). Reggie is still struggling with his leg problems but his performance tonight did not reflect it. Cody Hawn went 3-5. 9 BC hits in this one, all singles.

Final Game 2: Mobile 2, Huntsville 1 (8 Innings)

Huntsville Game 2 Box Score
Well the Stars were swept in the double header losing both games in walk off fashion and swept in the entire 5 game series, yikes. Hiram Burgos pitched a gem, the only problem was that he walked in a run in the 1st or he gets the win in regulation. Hiram topped out at 90 MPH tonight on the stadium gun so his velocity hasn't significantly improved. He went 6IP allowing 1H, 1R, 1WP, 2HBP, and 4BB against 4SO while throwing 47 of 82 pitches for strikes and posting an 8:3 ratio. Dan Merklinger took the loss pitching the final 1.2 allowing a run on 2H, 1HBP, and 3BB against a single strike out.

No Star batter had a multi-hit game but resident singles hitter Scooter Gennett did double, his 3rd of the double header. Tommy Manzella committed his 6th error (throwing) and Anderson De La Rosa also had 2PB bringing his season total to 7. Burgos did pick off 1 runner at first and nearly had another.
