Both Series Tied

Both Pacific Coast League playoff series are going to a final Game Five today.

In the Pacific Conference, Daric Barton homered in the tenth inning and Sacramento won at Reno Saturday night, 4-3. The homer came off Aces closer Jonathan Albaladejo, one of the top relievers in the league.

Game Five is today at 1:05. Talk about an age gap: Sacramento is starting 22-year-old Sonny Gray against Reno’s 39-year-old Brett Tomko.

The American Conference series was tied in rather dramatic and classic PCL fashion. Trailing at home, 10-3, Albuquerque scored nine runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and beat Omaha, 12-10. Tony Gwynn Jr. hit the go-ahead three-run homer – his first of the year, anywhere. Former Rainiers catcher Adam Moore smacked two homers for Omaha in the losing cause.

Game Five starts at 12:35 today. Omaha is starting Justin Marks against Albuquerque’s Will Savage.

While reading about the playoff games, I stumbled into this story on former Tacoma Tigers manager Ed Nottle. It details the time he was ejected, and dressed as the Tiger mascot and went back on the field.
