Sometimes, as the Timber Rattlers showed us tonight: late means tomorrow. Sometimes, as the Sounds dramatically showed us: late means absolutely nothing doing through seven innings and then a dreamy seven-spot, take the lead and shut the door end to the night. I miss my opportunity to see and report on yet another tantalizing Timber Rattlers pitching prospect in one 6'7" 255-pound Russell Smith. Still, I also check back in my most recent 'up and comer' down in Zebulon in Eduardo Garcia.
Enough of the introductions; let's get into the meat!
