Sunday's Daily Menu:

All times are Central

Nashville: RHP Brian Baker at Albuquerque (Dodgers), 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 Hiram Burgos at Jackson (Mariners), 5:50 PM pre-game, 6:05 gametime

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

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: RHP Taylor Jungmann at home vs. Charlotte (Rays), 4:05 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 David Goforth at Burlington (Athletics), 1:40 PM pre-game, 2:00 gametime; RHP Chad Pierce will pitch in a tandem effort

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).

**********

Helena: RHP Michael Schaub at home vs. Billings (Reds), 1:50 PM pre-game, 2:05 gametime

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

We're lucky to have Steve Wendt back on board for another H-Crew season.

**********

Arizona Rookie (Maryvale): at home vs. the Diamondbacks' youngsters; 9:00 PM gametime; never audio for games in this league

**********

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

DVR Alert!

When the Timber Rattlers return home on Monday, they will be on TV on Time Warner Cable Sports 32 (7:05).

They will be up against a big Brewers - Reds broadcast (Gallardo / Latos), so kind of an odd scheduling choice. But that's what DVR's are for, so we give you the heads up. RHP Mark Williams is scheduled to start.

Look for Nashville and Wisconsin media notes at the links just prior to their game times.

Huntsville's posting theirs more consistently. Rest your pointer under the "Roster" banner on the Stars' home page to see the link.

Location: Green Bay, WI
Final: Wisconsin 4, Burlington 5

Rattlers drop one in Burlington
By Chris Mehring / Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

BURLINGTON, IA - The Burlington Bees completed a three-game sweep of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to open the second half of the Midwest League season. Burlington edged the Rattlers 5-4 on Sunday afternoon at Community Field. The Bees rallied from a 4-2 deficit with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and held on for the win.

Max Muncy put the Bees (35-37 overall, 3-0 second half) in front with his first professional hit. Oakland's 2012 fifth round pick out of Baylor hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the second inning made t 2-0 in favor of Burlington.

The Rattlers (44-28, 0-3) rallied for a run in the top of the second inning. Chadwin Stang doubled with one out. Lance Roenicke followed with a single to shallow left. Stang rounded third, but held. However, Roenicke rounded first base too far and drew a throw. But, the Bees had no one covering first base and Roenicke outran Chih-Fang Pan back to the first base bag as Stang broke for the plate to score the first Rattlers run.

It was Stang and Roenicke who started a two-out rally in the top of the fifth to put Wisconsin in front for the first time of the afternoon. Stang drew a two-out walk against Bees starter Drew Granier on a 3-2 pitch. Roenicke followed with a base hit to left to put runners on the corners.

Then, Brandon Macias dropped a drag bunt up the third base line for a single. The throw to first was wild and both Stang and Roenicke scored as Macias motored around to third base. Mitch Haniger followed with a single to left to send Macias home for a 4-2 lead.

Goforth rebounded from his rough second inning and shut the Bees through the fifth inning. He allowed one hit - the homer by Muncy - walked four and struck out four. But, he was not involved in the decision.

Chad Pierce relieved Goforth to start the bottom of the sixth inning and gave up singles to the first two batters he faced. Rashun Dixon was next and he doubled high off the wall in left field to drive in both runners. Muncy singled on the next pitch to score Dixon and give the Bees a 5-4 lead.

Stang reached first on a bunt single with one out in the top of the seventh and stole second base, but he was left stranded when the inning ended.

Burlington's bullpen shutdown the Rattlers over the final four innings of the game. Bees relievers extended their current scoreless streak to 18-1/3 innings with their work on Sunday.

The Timber Rattlers begin a six-game homestand on Monday night when they return home to face the Quad Cities River Bandits. Mark Williams (4-5, 2.15) is the scheduled starting pitcher for Wisconsin. Dail Villanueva (3-4, 4.19) is scheduled to start for Quad Cities. Game time is 7:05pm.

Monday is Peanut Free Night at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium. No peanuts will be sold or be on the premises to allow fans with peanut allergies to attend the game.

Monday is also US Cellular You Run the Show Night. Fans have selected many of the promotions that will occur during the game by voting on the Timber Rattlers facebook page. Fans voted to have the US Cellulatr drawstring backpack as the item that will be given away to the first 1,000 fans to enter stadium before the game.

Additionally, the Timber Rattlers and Fox Cities Social have set up an interactive scavenger hunt during the game for a chance to win prizes. There will also be a designated meet-up area for fans to catch up with their social media friends. Follow the action for "You Run the Show Night" on Twitter through the hashtag #tratnation.

It's a B104.7 Qdoba Q*Monday, too. Fans may receive a free ticket to this game or any Monday home game on the 2012 schedule when they purchase a lunch entrée at the Qdoba by the Fox River Mall on Monday.

If you can't make it out to the ballpark on Monday, you may catch Timber Rattlers action on the radio, on the internet, or on TV. The radio broadcast is on AM1280, WNAM and timberrattlers.com starting with the Miller Lite Pregame Show at 6:45pm. If you subscribe to MiLB.TV, you can follow the video action. Sports32 will telecast the game to Time Warner Cable subscribers.

BUR: Max Muncy (1st, 1 on in 2nd off David Goforth, 0 out)

Wisconsin Box Score

Chadwin Stang led the Rattlers offense with a 2 for 3 day. He doubled, drew a walk, stole his 13th base of the season and scored two runs. Lance Roenicke got his first two hits as a Timber Rattler, batting out of the leadoff spot. He scored a run but also struck out twice and was caught stealing. Brandon Macias was 1 for 3 with a walk. Mitch Haniger had a single and stole his first base. Wisconsin had seven total hits, but Stang's double was the only one that went for extra bases. They were going up against Drew Granier who was the starting pitcher for the Western Division in the Midwest League All-Star Game.

David Goforth started and allowed two runs on just one hit over five innings. He struck out four, but also walked four. Chad Pierce came on in relief and gave up 3 runs in 2 2/3 innings. He also struggled with his control, walking four and giving up four hits. The damage could have been worse for Pierce as he loaded the bases in the eighth, but Mike Strong came in and struck out Bobby Crocker (Oakland's 10th best prospect according to Baseball America) to end the inning.

SAVE: Jeff Urlaub (1)
Pointless thought to think: Urlaub means Vacation in German

The Stars gave away unique Father's Day bobbleheads of Hunter Morris, holding his young son Tripp.

But teammate Mitch Stetter offered this up on Twitter: "Hunter Morris bobble head... Still trying to figure out why he's holding Scooter Gennett"

Maybe it's the fact that he's 24 yrs old, but I still feel like Burgos is flying under the radar a bit. He's put up some pretty good numbers since his promotion to Huntsville. 48.1 IP, 2.42 ERA, 49 SO, 19 walks.

Mitch Stetter is trying to nail down the save for Huntsville, after a two-RBI double from Lee Haydel in the top of the 9th broke a tie... the Stars went on to take a 5-2 lead.

Just going to include this as a for-what-it's-worth - no special tweet, just a Link Report bonus.

Actually, I'll copy this into a Transaction Rumor thread so if you want to discuss, do so there.

***

From a fan at the Nashville / Albuquerque game Sat. night -- said Mark Rogers was maxing out at 97.

Apparently there were an unusually high number of scouts on hand for this one (as many as 12-15 teams). The buzz around those scouts was that Rogers would be back in the big leagues soon.

My own thoughts because this could go in so many ways -- other than the fact that multiple scouts could have been there for any number of reasons, as after all, the Dodgers will likely move prospects as well.

Rogers, even with no minor league options left for 2013, would still be a prized power arm for another GM to acquire should the Brewers go into a buyer's mode.

The Brewers have never shown an inkling that Rogers would best be served in a relief role, and given the current big league's staff problem with relief bases on balls, it doesn't seem like it's a wise time to finally transition Mark now.

If the Brewers go into seller's mode, there are going to be big league rotation openings, certainly even one departure could conceivably free up a spot for Rogers. With no 2013 minor league options remaining, Doug and Ron would want to know what they have in terms of Rogers 2013 by seeing what he could do later this season on the big league level -- and in some ways, August innings mean much more than September innings.

I guess the best thing to take out of this is that Mark looks to be back on track (has been trending that way for a few weeks now), and that there's value there in terms of trade value and keeper performance.

FYI, there was no update re: his departure last night (possible hand issue?), so until we read otherwise, consider that a non-issue.

(Remember, please limit discussion posts on the topic to the Transaction Rumor Forum thread linked above, thanks.)

Audio from Albuquerque — “Roaming the Outfield with Schafer”

Jeff Hem's note -- Tonight’s pregame interview is with Sounds outfielder Logan Schafer, who discusses his two-homer game and near-cycle Friday in Nashville, his hot hitting in June, the improvement in the home run department (7 already this year, 5 last year) and roaming the expansive outfield at hitter-friendly Isotopes Park.

***

Honestly, at this point, wouldn't every knowledgeable Brewers fan be willing to say goodbye to Nyjer Morgan (especially after today's gaffe) and just hand the likely long-term answer in CF the job on Monday in Cincinnati?

Huntsville 5, @Jackson 2

Huntsville Box
A two-run 1st for the Stars gave them a 2-0 lead they held until the Generals answered with their own two-run frame in the 5th. Zeroes were again posted by both clubs until the top of the 9th, when the Stars were finally able to break the tie and secure the win with a three-run, two-out rally... everything after two!

Huntsville starter Hiram Burgos continued his success with another strong outing: 7 IP, 7 H, 2 R/ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 5:3 GO:AO. The only real blip on Burgos's radar tonight was a two-run homer surrendered in the 5th. For some reason, however, he was lifted from the game after seven strong while being credited (in the box score) with just 81 pitches. On top of that, Burgos's most recent start was last Sunday... so I'm a little confused as to why his leash was so short in tonight's game. However, the Stars relievers held up their end of the bargain -- Darren Byrd worked a scoreless 8th, and Mitch Stetter and Jesus Sanchez combined to slam the door on the Generals in the bottom of the 9th. Stetter retired the first two Jackson players -- one K & one pop-up -- but was pulled after allowing a two-out single. Sanchez came on and struck out his only batter for the final out of the game.

Leadoff man LF Lee Haydel went 2-3 with a walk, and his two-run double in the top of the 9th was easily the Stars' biggest hit in the game. 2-hole hitter CF Josh Prince also had a two-hit night, finishing 2-5 with an RBI; his RBI came right after Haydel's big double in the 9th, and pushed the Huntsville lead out to 5-2. 2B Scooter Gennett, DH Scott Krieger, RF Kentrail Davis, and replacement SS Juan Sanchez each singled once, and were the only other Stars with hits. Krieger and C Anderson De La Rosa walked once apiece.

SS Tommy Manzella was removed from the game after the 3rd inning, and if I had to guess I'd guess that he got dinged up on a double-play turn in the home half of the 2nd inning. Even though we probably already know the answer (given that Tommy Manzella was the starting SS over Prince anyway), it'll be interesting to see if Prince will be the one to take over at SS now. Hey, a guy can dream!


Huntsville PbP
The top of the 1st definitely had a 'thank you very much' error by the Generals, but three straight singles to lead off the game really got things going:

Huntsville Top of the 1st
-Lee Haydel singles on a line drive to center fielder Denny Almonte.
-Josh Prince singles on a line drive to center fielder Denny Almonte. Lee Haydel to 2nd.
-Scooter Gennett singles on a ground ball to center fielder Denny Almonte. Lee Haydel scores. Scooter Gennett to 2nd. Josh Prince advances to 3rd, on throwing error by center fielder Denny Almonte.
-Hunter Morris strikes out swinging.
-Hainley Statia strikes out swinging.
-Scott Krieger walks.
-Kentrail Davis reaches on missed catch error by first baseman Eric Campbell, assist to catcher Jesus Sucre. Josh Prince scores. Scooter Gennett to 3rd. Scott Krieger to 2nd.
-Anderson De La Rosa grounds out, second baseman Stefen Romero to first baseman Eric Campbell.

I wonder if Davis's ball in play was a swinging bunt, or if Squeeze Fever! has trickled all the way down the organizational ranks.

And here's the decisive visitors' half of the 9th:

Huntsville Top of the 9th
-Pitcher Change: Jonathan Arias replaces Andrew Kittredge.
-Scott Krieger grounds out, third baseman Nate Tenbrink to first baseman Eric Campbell.
-Kentrail Davis singles on a fly ball to left fielder Chris Pettit.
-With Anderson De La Rosa batting, Kentrail Davis steals (10) 2nd base.
-Anderson De La Rosa walks.
-Juan Sanchez flies out to left fielder Chris Pettit.
-Lee Haydel doubles (3) on a line drive to center fielder Denny Almonte. Kentrail Davis scores. Anderson De La Rosa scores.
-With Josh Prince batting, wild pitch by Jonathan Arias, Lee Haydel to 3rd.
-Josh Prince singles on a line drive to left fielder Chris Pettit. Lee Haydel scores.
-With Scooter Gennett batting, Jonathan Arias picks off Josh Prince at 1st on throw to Eric Campbell.

Costly time for Prince to get caught leaning at 1B, but at least it didn't come back to haunt Huntsville.

Maryvale trails 6-1 after two innings.

You want to be positive and also considerate to these young men, whether new to pro ball, new to the states, or just a year or two removed from high school.

Then you remember that all their opponent's are basically in the same boat, and you just have to say "yikes". You hate to see this get to laughable status.

I think people spent to much time talking prospects and forget about others that are actually doing better than Top prospect.

I gotta wonder if the the AZL Brewers pitchers are working on something really specific - like only throwing fastballs, or only throwing change-ups or something else wacky. That's the only explanation I can think of for this bizarrely terrible start to the season.

8-1 now after the top of the third.

Hearing that it may have been a minor blister concern. Not confirmed, but makes some sense.
