Rainiers Win Big

The Rainiers evened up the series in Fresno on Saturday night, blasting the Grizzlies 11-1.

Tacoma had 14 hits, with seven of them going for extra bases. Seven different players had two hits for the Rainiers, including the first six batters in the lineup.

Tacoma had one home run: a line drive two-run shot by Luis Jimenez in the third inning. Jimenez already has three homers and three doubles in ten games, exactly the kind of extra-base power the Rainiers need from him.

Mike Carp had the first two hits of his rehabilitation assignment, going 2-for-5 with a single and a double.

We have a hitting streak: Carlos Triunfel had two hits yesterday, and he has a five-game hitting streak during which he has gone 7-for-22.

Anthony Vasquez started and pitched six innings for the win, becoming the Rainiers first pitcher to earn two wins. Vasquez has nine straight “quality starts” in the PCL, dating back to last year.

Today’s game is at 2:05 PM with the pregame show starting at 1:50. The broadcast is on 850 AM and streaming online right here. Tacoma starts RHP Matt Fox (0-2, 2.25) against Fresno LHP Travis Blackley (0-0, 0.00).


Off to the ballpark for some daytime baseball!
