More Morning Baseball

We’re at it again: morning baseball, PCL style!

The Rainiers wrap up the road trip with a 9:30 AM game today. The team is off on Wednesday, and then opens an eight-game homestand on Thursday against Memphis (and top pitching prospect Michael Wacha).

On Monday Tacoma had a late rally fizzle out, and the Rainiers lost 5-3. Down 5-2 going to the ninth, Tacoma scored a run and loaded the bases with nobody out. New Orleans closer Chris Hatcher struck out three straight batters to end the game in rather dramatic fashion.

For all of the details on the game, check the first link down below.

Today’s game is an important one, in my opinion. The Rainiers are 2-5 on this road trip. They were swept the first four games in Oklahoma City, but if they win today that would mean a 3-1 series win on the road, and a not-so-bad 3-5 record on the trip.

Tacoma starts RHP Blake Beavan (0-2, 5.91) against New Orleans LHP Duane Below (2-1, 2.76). Tune in for the pregame show at 9:15, former Mariners closer David Aardsma is my guest. The broadcast is on 850 AM and streams online right here. If you are an iPad or iPhone listener, use this link.


Wednesday is an off-day for the team, and I’m taking one, too. I’ll have a new post for you on Thursday to kick off the eight-game homestand.
