Christian Taugner struck out seven batters and allowed five hits to pick up his seventh win as the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers down the Clinton Lumber Kings 9-2 in Clinton, Iowa. The Rattlers took a seven-run lead in the third, fourth and fifth innings. That included a two-run homer by Eddie Silva in the fourth. The Kings managed to get only one run in the sixth inning and the other in the ninth inning. The Timber Rattlers and LumberKings will play a doubleheader on Sunday to make up a game that was rained out in Wisconsin on July 1.
