It’s a beautiful Sunday at Fox Cities Stadium in Wisconsin as the Cougars and Timber Rattlers play the middle contest of a three-game series. Wisconsin grabbed the opener last night with a 7-3 victory which included home runs by Jason Rogers and Yadiel Rivera.
The Cougars faced their first MLB rehab of the season as Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez went 1-for-3 in the contest. Gomez has left the Rattlers to return to Milwaukee. Rumor has it he purchased steak dinners for the entire Rattlers’ squad upon his exit.
Righty Brooks Pounders (2-1, 3.38) gets the nod for the Cougars on the hill today against right-hander David Goforth (3-3, 6.27). With a win, the Cougars can guarantee at least a .500 road trip. They are 2-2 so far after winning two of three in Cedar Rapids.
Here’s the lineup today from Brian Buchanan:
Justin Trapp 2B
Danny Mateo DH
Jorge Bonifacio RF
Lane Adams CF
Michael Antonio 3B
Orlando Calixte SS
Murray Watts 1B
Edul Escobar C
Runey Davis LF
RHP Brooks Pounders
