Once again this season, Brevard does not have its own audio coverage.

Audio from Nashville — “(Dayton) Buller’s Beliefs”

Jeff Hem's note -- Tonight’s interview is with Sounds catcher Dayton Buller, who got to celebrate his 31st birthday today by joining me for a chat. Not much of a present for him, unfortunately! One of the great things about interviewing players in baseball is that while I go into the interview with some notes and potential questions prepared, I can never say for sure how and where the interview is going to go. I can say this for certain: I didn’t go into today’s interview with Buller knowing that he was in rehabbing Brewers infielder and current Sound Travis Ishikawa’s wedding a few years ago, let alone that Ishikawa and Buller readily admit they’re horrible dancers. Buller originally came up with the Giants and played with Ishikawa for several years and also has caught pitchers like Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain.

Unfortunately a Brewer in the not-so-hot portion of the Hot Sheet. Did you guess correctly?

Final: Wisconsin 1, Burlington 2

Bees top Rattlers in second half opener
By Chris Mehring / Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

BURLINGTON, IA - The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers made a pair of uncharacteristic errors on Friday night at Community Field. The errors cost them a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Burlington Bees as both teams got back into action after the four day All-Star Break. Eliezer Mesa had two hits and scored both runs for the Bees to ruin another fine start by Wisconsin pitcher Matt Miller.

Yadiel Rivera started a rally for the Timber Rattlers (44-26 overall, 0-1 second half) in the top of the third inning. He singled back through the middle to lead off the frame. A wild pitch by Burlington starter Max Perlman allowed Rivera to scamper all the way to third base. Brandon Macias drove in Rivera with a sacrifice fly to right.

Miller struck out eight and allowed two hits in the first five innings. But, he ran into trouble against the top third of the order in the bottom of the sixth. Mesa singled to start the inning. Sean Jamieson tried to sacrifice Mesa to second. He did that and reached first base on an error by Miller. BA Vollmuth was next and his single to left loaded the bases with no outs.

Miller and the Rattlers almost pulled a great escape in the inning. Cleanup hitter Rashun Dixon sent a grounder to third. Macias fielded the ball on his backhand about a step from the base. He stepped on third for the force on Jamieson at third and threw to second to get Vollmuth for the second out. But, the relay to first was just a tad late to get Dixon for the triple play and the fielder's choice allowed Mesa to score the tying run.

The Rattlers had an opportunity to go in front in the top of the eighth inning. Rafael Neda singled to start the eighth. Lance Roenicke came on to pinch run for the Rattlers catcher. Then, Yadiel Rivera dropped a sacrifice bunt to get Roenicke into scoring position against Bees reliever Jose Macias. The Rattlers could not cash in the chance. Jose Macias got Brandon Macias to fly out to center. Then, lefty Jeff Urlaub came into the game and struck out lefty Max Walla to end the threat.

Mesa started the winning rally for the Bees (33-37, 1-0) in the eighth with a one out single. He would steal second with Jamieson at the plate and take third on a wild throw to second base. The Bees called for a suicide squeeze on the next pitch. The offering was low and Jamieson couldn't get the bunt down. But, the ball bounced away from Roberts and Mesa scored the run to make the score 2-1.

Urlaub came back out for the top of the ninth and struck out the side in order to nail down the Burlington victory.

Wisconsin's two errors in the game gave them 56 in 70 games played, the lowest total of the sixteen teams in the Midwest League. The errors meant that both Burlington runs in the game were unearned

Game two of the series is Saturday night at Community Field. Drew Gagnon (6-1, 2.49) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers. Burlington plans on sending Seth Frankoff (1-5, 5.69) to the mound. Game time is 6:30pm. Tune in for the broadcast on AM1280 or timberratlers.com starting with Miller Lite Pregame Show at 6:10pm.

WP: Jeff Urlaub (5-4)
LP: Tyler Cravy (1-3)

TIME: 2:29
ATTN: 864

Wisconsin Box Score
Tough loss for the Timber Rattlers to start the second half of the season. Matt Miller pitched really well, going six innings and allowing only one unearned run. He struck out eight and had a 8:0 groundout to flyout ratio. Tyler Cravy was the tough luck loser after allowing just one hit and striking out four in his two innings of work. Tyler Roberts had a rough 8th inning defensively after coming in to catch.

Only four hits for the Rattlers offense, all singles. Yadiel Rivera was 1 for 2 with a sacrifice and scored the team's only run. Max Walla, Cameron Garfield and Rafael Neda had the other base hits. Mitch Haniger went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout in his first game of the season. Lance Roenicke made his MWL debut when he came on to pinch run for Neda in the 8th but was stranded at second base. Ben McMahan stole his sixth base of the season.

Timber Rattlers game story from the Burlington side.
Bees Squeeze Out 2-1 Win
The Bees opened the second half with an exciting win.
By Daniel Trivinos / Burlington Bees

BURLINGTON, Iowa - The Burlington Bees (33-37 overall, 1-0 second half) capitalized on great pitching and used aggressive base running to win 2-to-1 over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (44-26, 0-1). They attempted a squeeze play in the eighth, but instead scored on a wild pitch to take a 2-to-1 lead late the first game of the second half.

The Bees couldn't have stolen a game in the late innings without a stellar performance from the pitching staff. Max Perlman (1-3) made his third start of the season and match his season-high of five innings pitched for the third consecutive outing. The tall right-hander tossed dealt with a tight, but consistent strike zone and battled through all five innings. He only allowed one run on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Macias that scored Yadiel Rivera in the top of the third.

Overall Perlman only allowed two hits, two walks, an earned run, and struck out two batters en route to a no-decision. The Harvard grad also lowered his team leading ERA to an impressive 2.73 mark in 18 appearances this season.

The Bees managed to score in bottom of the sixth after loading the bases with no outs. Unfortunately Rashun Dixon grounded into a double play, but Eliezer Mesa scored on the play to tie the game 1-to-1 after six innings. Despite Wisconsin's starter, Matt Miller (5-5) owning an 0-3 record with 7.20 ERA against the Bees this season, the Bees' offense struggled to connect against the tall righty and actually struck out eight times.

The Bees turned to Jose Macias who started the season in the rotation, but amassed a 2.05 ERA in seven starts before entering the bullpen. Macias pitched 2.2 innings and only allowed two hits while striking out four members of the Timber Rattlers' lineup.

Despite not acquiring one RBI in the game, the Bees still managed to take the lead in the bottom of the eighth. Mesa lined a one-out single into centerfield. Mesa immediately took off for second base and earned more than just his 11th stolen base of the season after the catcher's throw bounced into centerfield.

Bees manager Aaron Nieckula wasted no time in ordering a squeeze attempt. Sean Jamieson tried to bunt the ball, but didn't connect on the wild pitch from Tyler Cravy. Because Mesa was running on the pitch, the Bees were able to score despite the ball not travelling far from Wisconsin's catcher, Tyler Roberts.

Jeff Urlaub (5-4) retired a batter in the eighth and preserved the win in the top of the ninth by striking out the side. In fact, Urlaub struck out all four batters he faced and earned his fifth win.

The Bees play game two with the Timber Rattlers on Saturday night at 6:30 p.m. Those in attendance can enjoy Friends and Family Night at the park, as well Oakland A's night, which will feature the Bees wear A's uniforms.

Final: Oklahoma City 10, Nashville 7

Sounds Lose Slugfest To RedHawks, 10-7
Packed House Watches Schafer Belt Two Homers For Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Brett Wallace belted a pair of homers to lead the Oklahoma City RedHawks to a 10-7 victory over the Nashville Sounds in front of 9,047 fans on Friday evening at Greer Stadium.

With the slugfest victory, the RedHawks gained a split of the four-game set with Nashville (30-45) and won the season series by a 13-3 margin. The Sounds finished their homestand with a 4-4 record.

Center fielder Logan Schafer hit a pair of home runs as part of a 4-for-5 evening for the Sounds, missing the cycle by a double. It marked the first multiple-homer game of his six-year career as well as the first two-homer effort by a Sound this season.

Corey Patterson added a season-best 3-for-4 evening for the Sounds, who out-hit Oklahoma City, 13-10, in the losing effort.

Sounds starter Wily Peralta endured a rough first inning, giving up four runs and facing eight batters before departing with two outs in the frame after tossing 45 pitches.

With the bases full of RedHawks with two outs following a pair of walks sandwiched around a single, Peralta hit Fernando Martinez with a pitch to force home Brandon Barnes (3-for-6) with the game's first run. Catcher Landon Powell followed with a two-run single to center before Jordan Kreke chased the right-hander from the contest with a bloop RBI single to right that gave the visitors a 4-0 lead.

Johnnie Lowe followed Peralta with a solid relief effort, working 4 1/3 scoreless frames and allowing only one hit. He worked around five walks and fanned a season-high five batters in his longest outing of the season.

Nashville halved the deficit to 4-2 in the home half of the opening frame.

Schafer led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo homer to deep right-center off Oklahoma City left-hander Brett Oberholtzer, his sixth homer of the year and the Sounds' third game-opening longball of the season. Jeff Bianchi followed with a double down the left field line and later scored on Andy Gonzalez's two-out bloop single to shallow right.

AUDIO: Schafer's 1st HR

The Sounds pulled within a run at 4-3 in the third. Schafer led off with a fly ball to right that Brad Snyder lost in the lights. The ball dropped on the warning track, Schafer ended up on third with a triple, and then scored on Bianchi's ensuing groundout to short.

Nashville evened the contest with an unearned run off Oberholtzer in the fourth. With one out, Eric Farris hit a grounder to deep short and advanced all the way to second when Kreke fired wide of first. Patterson followed with a game-tying single to right but was thrown out as he attempted to advance to second on the play.

Schafer powered the Sounds to a 5-4 lead in the fifth when he led off with his second homer of the night, a line drive shot onto the Family Leisure beyond the wall in the right field corner.

AUDIO: Schafer's 2nd HR

Oklahoma City jumped right back in front in the top of the sixth with a three-run rally against Sounds reliever Victor Garate. Pinch-hitter Angel Sanchez drew a walk to open the frame and later scored the tying run on a Snyder sacrifice fly before Wallace (2-for-4) gave the RedHawks a 7-5 lead with a mammoth home run to right, a two-run shot that landed on Chestnut Street on the fly, at least 450 feet from home plate. The go-ahead dinger was the third baseman's 11th of the year.

The RedHawks extended the lead to 9-5 in the seventh against Garate on Barnes' one-out, two-run single to center.

Schafer continued his solid night in the seventh with an RBI single off Jonnathan Aristil to bring in Patterson, who singled to open the frame. After advancing to third on a Bianchi single, Schafer later scored to reduce the Sounds' deficit to 9-7 when Oklahoma City reliever Mickey Storey misfired to first base on a pickoff attempt.

Wallace slugged his second home run of the night to lead off the eighth, swatting an opposite-field shot to left-center off Garate to stretch the visitors' lead to 10-7.

After Storey worked 1 2/3 scoreless frames of relief for Oklahoma City, Hector Ambriz worked around a leadoff Patterson single to work a scoreless bottom of the ninth to preserve the win and notch his first save of the year.

Oberholtzer (1-1) backed into his first career Triple-A victory after departing the game on the short end of a 5-4 deficit before the RedHawks' sixth-inning rally. The southpaw allowed five runs on eight hits over his five frames of action.

Garate (2-5) absorbed the loss for the Sounds after suffering a blown save and surrendering six runs in his two innings.

First baseman Travis Ishikawa went 0-for-3 in his sixth rehab game for Nashville, during which he has batted .222 (4-for-18).

A pair of Sounds had season-best hitting streaks snapped in the contest: catcher Jason Jaramillo had a six-gamer end with an 0-for-4 evening and outfielder Jay Gibbons went 0-for-2 to snap his five-gamer.

The Sounds embark upon a seven-game road trip tomorrow that includes stops in Albuquerque (AAA-Dodgers) and Round Rock (AAA-Rangers). Right-hander Mark Rogers (2-4, 5.68) will take the hill for Nashville in Saturday's 8:05 p.m. CT opener of a four-game series at Isotopes Park. Albuquerque will counter with left-hander Michael Antonini (1-5, 5.14).

Nashville Box Score
I wonder what kind of athlete Wily Peralta is? How could he possibly screw up his mechanics so bad he's suddenly pitching the way he's pitching? This season has turned out to be way beyond what would have been my worse case for Wily. Hopefully Victor Garate never pitches to Brett Wallace again, 2 bombs in 2 innings, wonderful. At least Johnnie Lowe was clutch and Robert Wooten pitched 2 scoreless.

Inquiring minds want to know if Logan Schafer will get a shot to make the big club next year? Maybe they'll keep both Morgan and Schafer so we have 4 CFs on the MLB roster! Schafer's OPS will be more than .780 after today's power barrage, not too shabby for a CF, about all he needs now is a haircut. Jeff Bianchi chipped in a 2-4 effort including the double, as did Andy Gonzalez. Corey Patterson's night detailed above.

Nashville Play By Play
Wooten's performance, something positive on the pitching side.

Okla. City Top of the 8th
    Sean Halton remains in the game as the first baseman.
    Brett Wallace homers (12) on a fly ball to left field.

    Pitcher Change: Robert Wooten replaces Victor Garate, batting 4th.
    Defensive Substitution: Hainley Statia replaces pitcher Victor Garate, batting 9th, playing third base.
    J. B. Shuck grounds into a force out, fielded by shortstop Jeff Bianchi. Mike Hessman to 3rd. Jake Goebbert out at 2nd. Shuck to 1st.
    Landon Powell lines into double play, center fielder Logan Schafer to first baseman Sean Halton. J. B. Shuck doubled off 1st.

Brevard edges Dunedin, 6-5
06/22/2012 11:04 PM ET
By Frank Longobardo / Brevard County Manatees

VIERA, Fla. - The Brevard County Manatees scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth to erase a 3-0 deficit and held on to defeat the Dunedin Blue Jays, 6-5 on Friday night at Space Coast Stadium.

The Manatees' (2-0 second half, 31-39 overall) rally in the sixth started with a lead-off walk by T.J. Mittelstaedt. Jason Rogers and Mike Walker then had back-to-back singles, with Walker's driving in Mittelstaedt and chasing Dunedin (0-2, 42-27) starter Marcus Walden from the game.

The new reliever Boomer Potts faced just one batter as he walked Cody Hawn to load the bases. Dustin Antolin came in for the Blue Jays and was rudely greeted by Shea Vucinich who singled to plate Rogers and cut Dunedin's lead to 3-2.

Antolin retired the next two hitters but then allowed a bases-loaded, two-out walk to Nick Shaw that tied the game at 3-3. Reggie Keen then stepped in and hit a hot shot to second baseman Ryan Schimpf for an infield single. Schimpf tried throwing out Vucinich at third, but his throw was wild as the Manatees took a 5-3 lead.

As quickly as Brevard County took the lead, Dunedin tied the game back up in the seventh as Seth Harvey allowed a two-out, two-run homer to Jake Marisnick. The Blue Jays lead would be short lived though as the 'Tees took a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the seventh on a RBI double to left by Hawn.

Brevard was unable to plate any insurance runs in the eighth, despite two hits in the inning. The Manatees ran themselves out of the inning, as Shaw was thrown out stealing second and Keen was caught in a rundown for the final out of the inning.

Dunedin made the top of the ninth interesting against Brevard's All-Star closer Casey Medlen. After striking out Michael Crouse, Medlen walked Jonathan Jones and allowed a single to Kevin Nolan, which put the go-ahead run on base. Medlen then settled down and forced a fly out in foul territory and a strike out to seal the game and give the 'Tees their second straight win.

Manatees starting pitcher Brandon Williamson (1-4, 5.87) threw five innings and allowed two runs on five hits. He walked one and struck out three as he did not factor in the decision. Walker led the way at the plate for Brevard as he went 3-for-4 with a RBI and two runs scored. Both Hawn and Keen had two hits each as Hawn had two doubles and Keen drove in two runs.

Brevard County will be going for the three-game sweep of the first half champion Blue Jays on Saturday night at 6:35 p.m. Andy Moye (2-0, 5.06) will toe the rubber for the 'Tees. He struck out five in three innings of relief in his only other appearance against Dunedin back on May 25.

The Blue Jays will send Jesse Hernandez (0-1, 40.50) to the mound for his second start in the Florida State League. In his first start after being called up from Class A Lansing, Hernandez went just 1.1 innings and allowed six runs against the Clearwater Threshers this past Monday.

Box Score

Very nice game for Brevard County as they look for the sweep of 1st place Dunedin tomorrow. Reggie Keen, the leading base-stealer and the 24th leading hitter in the FSL, went 2-5 but had more trouble on the base paths. T.J. Mittelstaedt, 9th in OPS, 6th in homers, 5th in TB's and t-4th in RBI in the FSL, went 0-3 with a BB. Mike Walker had a huge game going 3-4. Cody Hawn (2-3 2 2B BB) added to his doubles pile with 2 more tonight. Newcomer Jason Rogers went 1-3 with a BB. Rogers played LF tonight.

Brandon Williamson (5 IP 5 H 2 R 2 ER 1 BB 3 K 2 HBP 4:6 GO:FO) and four relievers appeared for the Sea Cows tonight. New kid Seth Harvey fared the worst giving up 2 runs in his lone inning on a 2-out HR to top prospect Jake Marisnick. It was actually Jake's first homer since April when he it 3. Naturally, Seth ended up with the win due to the 5-run Sea Cow inning before he entered the game. Greg Holle and Casey Medlen finished in style with 4 K in 2 IP.

Check out the FSL hitting leader boards. Tough, tough league to hit. Also makes Mittelstaedt's performance more impressive, and his All-Star snub more egregious.

Billings (Reds) 9 Helena 4

Box Score

Another ugly game on the ledger for the Brewers farm teams. This game was lost during the 6-run 6th inning for Billings.

31st round 2012 Harvard draft pick Brent Suter got the start and was not the best. 3 IP 4 H 2 ER 2 R 0 BB 2 K 1 HR 6:0 GO:FO. He is the de facto #4 SP on this Helena team it appears. 2012 5th rounder Tyler Wagner made his pro debut. He was cruising until he got stuck in his 3rd inning. He was not helped by 2011 draft pick Mike Francisco. Mike recorded 0 outs before being removed for 2010 13th rounder Michael White. White recorded the final 10 outs giving up a single run and recorded 3 K's.

The hitters were worse than the pitchers on this night. Only 5 hits and 1 BB in the box. Raul Mondesi Jr. went 1-2 with BB. Chris McFarland went 1-3 with a SF. SS Alfredo Rodriguez went 1-3 with a 3B. C Michael Turay went 1-3. The 3-5 hitters (Reed, Garza, Giacalone) went 0-12.

Giacalone and McFarland committed their 1st errors. Garza his 3rd. Mondesi Jr. threw out anther runer. That's 3.

I feel like ranting, but I guess I just tell myself that it is a long season. I am going to be pretty ticked if this Maryvale club is complete garbage all season. It is embarrassing for the organization.

How many good AZ teams have we had? 2? I'm not surprised at all...
