Wisconsin defeats Beloit 5-1 for third straight win

September 8, 2022 – Midwest League (MWL) – Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Press Release

GRAND CHUTE, WI — The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are looking to finish the 2022 Midwest League strong. They broke a 1-1 tie with four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night to beat the Beloit Sky Carp 4-1 at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium. The victory was the third in a row for the Timber Rattlers, who have won eight of their last ten games.

Dalvy Rosario put the Sky Carp (62-66 overall, 31-32 in the second half) up 1-0 on the second pitch of the game with a solo home run.

Jose Acosta stopped a Beloit rally in the top of the fourth and was a one-man rally in the bottom of the fourth for Wisconsin (68-60, 32-31). The Sky Carp had a runner first after Osiris Johnson walked one out in the top of the fourth. Kyler Castillo hit a line drive to look like a base hit. However, Acosta jumped in for the second out and landed a strike at first just after landing to double Johnson first for the end-inning double play. Late inning, Acosta hit a solo home run with two outs to tie the game 1-1.

Neither of the two starting pitchers conceded another run. Beloit’s Evan Fitterer allowed four hits and walked one in five innings. Rattlers starter Alexander Cornielle also allowed just four hits while walking two and striking out seven of six innings.

The game remained tied until the final eighth inning, and it was Acosta who started the rally for Wisconsin.

Beloit reliever Patrick Murphy took too long to deliver a 3-2 pitch to Acosta and an autoball was called to send Acosta to first base with a walk. Zack Raabe followed with a right double and the Rattlers had runners at second and third with no outs.

Arbert Cipion, at bat with the Sky Carp infield playing on the grass, clipped a 1-2 pitch from Murphy in the middle to score the two runners and the Rattlers led 3-1.

Wisconsin added to their lead on a scoring error on a ground pitch from Jeferson Quero and an RBI single from Eduardo García for a 5-1 lead.

Joey Matulovich pitched scoreless seventh and eighth innings for his fifth win of the season. Brannon Jordan closed the game with a scoreless ninth.

Game 4 of the series is Friday night at Neuroscience Group Field. Carlos Rodríguez (3-1, 1.44) is the slated starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers. Jake Walters (1-2, 4.26) is set to start for Sky Carp. Game time is 6:40 p.m.
