Not Half Bad: Cougars Win West Victory Clinches Home-Field Advantage for Kane County


Fitzpatrick, Jerry, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Jerry Fitzpatrick Daily Herald Sports Writer

The Kane County Cougars finished the first half of the Midwest League season in the position they had grown accustomed to this spring: in first place in the Western Division.

A 3-run, fifth-inning rally, keyed by Jason Basil's 2-run double to the right-field wall, snapped a 3-3 tie and propelled Kane County to a 7-3 win over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in front of 9,383 at Elfstrom Stadium in Geneva on Sunday.

Winning the first-half finale gave the Cougars (41-29) sole possession of first place in the Western Division over second-place Wisconsin (38-28) heading to the league's all-star break.

Both teams had already sewn up playoff berths, but the Cougars earned home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs by finishing on top.

"We were in the playoffs anyway, but everybody wants to finish first," Basil said. "Second place is just the first loser."

The Cougars took a 1-0 lead on a second-inning RBI single by Brant Colamarino, who went 3-for-4.

The Cougars made it 3-0 in the fourth when Nick Rogers doubled home Colamarino and John McCurdy, who had singled back-to-back to start the inning. Rogers' tailing flyball could have been caught, but the ball glanced off right-fielder T.J. Bohn's glove and dropped in fair territory for a hit.
