Tacoma picked up a 10-6 win over Las Vegas on an extremely windy Sunday afternoon.
Luis Jimenez hit the go-ahead grand slam, and Greg Halman had three hits – including a home run on his first swing coming off the disabled list.
It was just the second time Las Vegas has lost in their last 13 games.
On Monday the two teams finish off the four-game series with a 12:05 game. Tacoma starts LHP Fabio Castro (3-2, 4.14) against Las Vegas LHP Brad Mills (4-3, 2.70). The broadcast can be heard on 850 AM and streaming online.
As you certainly are aware the president recently declared that Memorial Day is a blog holiday, so we will not have a fresh entry on Monday morning. I’ll be back with something on Tuesday when the Rainiers return home.
