Timber Rattlers rally to split double header
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Timber Rattlers battled back to split Sunday’s twin bill with Peoria at Fox Cities Stadium.
A pitchers duel broke out in game one. Brandon Knarr allowed just two hits in 5.2 innings of work, and struck out five Chiefs in the process. Peoria did not have their first hit until the fifth inning, which came back to bite Knarr and the Timber Rattlers.
With runners on the first and second, Francisco Hernandez hit into a fielders choice with Zavier Warren electing to go home on a bouncer to third baseman. After a brief rundown,, and a throw over to second base by catcher Darrien Miller, Matt Chamberlain came around to score the lone run of the game.
Wisconsin jumped out to an early lead in game two, but found themselves down 2-1 heading to the bottom of the seventh.
A base knock by Tyler Black drove in Yeison Coca and Sal Frelick for the Timber Rattlers second walk-off winner of the weekend.
