Taijuan Walker was terrific in his Triple-A debut on Tuesday night, earning the victory in the Rainiers 1-0 win over Fresno.
Walker went six innings, allowing three singles and two walks. Only one runner reached second base against him, no one made it to third. He recorded four strikeouts.
Josh Kinney and Bobby LaFromboise closed out the win. Tacoma’s only run came on Abraham Almonte’s solo homer in the fifth inning.
Wednesday is an off day for Tacoma and the blog. We’ll be back with a full post on Thursday, and all of the links to the stories on Walker’s debut.
