Vegas, Baby!

We’ve landed safely in Vegas and the city is hopping – the holiday weekend is here, and revellers are already streaming into town.

Sadly, we’re here for a work trip – but at least it will be a fun work trip, as both the Rainiers and Las Vegas are playing good baseball.

Tacoma has won 9 of the last 14 games, after splitting last night’s doubleheader with Nashville. The Rainiers had a season-best four-game winning streak end with the 3-2 loss in game two, but still Tacoma won the series with Nashville, three games to one.

It was Tacoma’s second series win of the year – the Rainiers took three of four from Tucson at home earlier. 

I talked a lot about this on the air last night, but Vegas is as hot as a baseball team can be right now. The 51s have won nine out of the last ten, and they have gone 19-4 over their last 23 games. Still, they trail Sacramento by two games in their division.

Tonight’s game is at 7:05. Tacoma starts LHP Chris Seddon (1-2, 5.70) against Las Vegas RHP Michael McDonald (2-1, 5.94). The game will be broadcast live on 850 AM and streaming online.

The annual Punk Rock Bowling festival starts tomorrow and it is just two or three blocks from our hotel. I hope this place is teeming with aggressively mohawked punkers all weekend – the juxtaposition between that, the baseball group, and the holiday weekend revellers should be truly entertaining.
