Sunday Game Notes

Here are game notes for today. April25GameNotes.pdf 
Chiefs will start Nick Struck in the 1:00 game and Lefty Jeff Antigua in the night cap. I’m still looking up some stats but yesterday was our 11th rainout at the Quad Cities since the 2003 season began (i.e. my first year). Pretty sure no other stadiums are close.

Also when Wisconsin comes to Peoria this week we get a chance to see a couple of the Brewers best pitching prospects. Jake Odorizzi is their 9th best prospect and a native of Highland, Illinois. The right was drafted in the 1st round supplemental in 2008 (32nd pick) and was given over a million dollars out of high school. He will be the 2nd pitcher of the piggyback on Wednesday. Then on Thursday we will face the Brewers 1st round selection (26nd pick) from last June’s draft, Eric Arnett. Arnett, who pitched at Indiana Univeristy, is Milwaukee’s 4th best prospect (behind two guys with MLB experience Alcides Escobar/Mat Gamel and last year’s Wisconsin 2nd baseman Brett Lawrie who is at AA now).

Wisconsin was already rained out today at home against Beloit so they will have two straight off days before Tuesday’s 6:30 game at O’Brien Field.
