MILWAUKEE - Mark Reynolds had a game-ending RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame Francisco Rodriguez's first blown save of the season for a 6-5 win Sunday over the New York Yankees.
Rickie Weeks doubled just inside the first base line with one out before going to third on a wild pitch by reliever Adam Warren (1-2).
Reynolds, who briefly played for New York last year, held his right index finger in the air after his hard chopper bounced past diving third baseman Yangervis Solarte at third to drive in Weeks two batters later. Reynolds then was mobbed by his teammates near first base.
The Yankees were one strike away from defeat when Mark Teixeira reached out for a low and away, full-count pitch from Rodriguez for a homer to right. It was the first run allowed all season by the veteran closer.
EAGLE RIVER - Some schools give out movie tickets, pizza parties, or ice cream coupons for students with good grades and good behavior. We do things a little differently here in the Northwoods.
Twenty-two students from Northland Pines Middle School will enjoy a half-day of fishing with a local guide as a reward for their success in school. The "Guides for Grades" program rewarded students on Monday for setting a good example in the classroom.
Supporters of a second softball field at Pioneer Park in Rhinelander will need to wait for any decision on if those plans can move forward.
The Parks, Buildings and Grounds Committee decided Monday night to hold a public hearing in front of the full city council before deciding on whether it wants to accept the park plans.
The Rhinelander softball program hopes to build a second softball field at Pioneer Park just south of its existing field. The program would use about $50,000 from donations and fundraisers to build the new field. Softball coach D.J. DeMeyer tells Newswatch 12 the second field would allow the city to host upwards of 70 games a year, including RHS softball games, tournaments, and city recreation leagues.
But the new field would require cutting down nearly 10 trees and take up space routinely used by the fair and farmers' market. City Administrator Kristina Aschenbrenner says she's heard from plenty of people worried about space issues.
