Marzilli catches and Sunday’s Lineup
by Ben Catley
OK, two things to share with you. For one, we’re working on getting video posted of the Evan Marzilli catch in center field last night. There is some video linked here (in the game notes section) for you to view of Marzilli doing his thing.
By the way, South Carolina fans have it going on. There is a thread dedicated to a certain catch made by a certain center fielder. Which has a certain photo on it:
We’ll post the video (which we are editing to enhance the call of the catch … I have to figure out a way to get slow-mo done in Premier Elements …) as soon as we can.
Meanwhile, we’re on the air at 4:50, with the first pitch scheduled for around 5:05. Today, we’ll take a look around the Pioneer League. Tomorrow, we will have Chris Pack on the Pre-game show once again, talking a few things that did not come up the first time around. Which means we’ll hear from manager Andy Green on Tuesday.

Notes from the Nest:
On the Mound Tonight:
The Brewers will counter tonight with right-hander Tyler Wagner, who has experience an up-and-down season to date. Wagner (0-2, 9.17) is 0-2 with a 14.21 ERA in three starts against the Osprey this season – and that includes a scoreless inning pitched in a start at Kindrick Legion Field. The damage has come in two starts in Missoula, where both of his losses were registered, allowing 10 earned runs (12 total) in just 5 1/3 innings pitched.
