Team Summaries Red Wings Notes:
Great opening game, much closer than the score would indicate. The Redwings played quite well, especially considering the lack of practice time so far. This first outing will help us plan practice time effectively and realize the abilities of the players. This is a talented group and we're going to be a good, competitive team.

Timber Rattlers Notes:
It was freezing cold, but the sky was cloud-free and baseball was in the air. Dedicated field crew from both teams relied on ingenuity, muscle and some heavy machinery that may have been borrowed from the tunnel boring around the corner to clear the infield of a fair amount of water and get the field in playing shape. Kudos to that group!

Q took the mound for the T-Rats and did his best Satchel Paige impersonation in the first - a strikeout, a pop up to the mound and a comebacker. He threw for 2 strong innings, giving up just 1 run on a lone hit and a couple free passes. Meanwhile, the T-Rats offense shined with singles by Red Bull and Bullwinkle bookending a series of walks to plate 5. In the middle of the rally, Fingers' HBP drove in the first run of the season.

Red Bull pitched the middle frames before pitch-counting out; he gave up no runs through 2 and was backstopped by a few nice plays at first base from Wiffle.

KitKat extended the T-Rat lead with a two run double to RF in the 4th, and Bullwinkle struck out the side in the 5th, closing the door on this one.

Called up: Q

Next weekend we play two, and we're looking forward to seeing a ton more pitchers make their season debuts!
