Bees, Rainiers Stare Into Mirror

The Tacoma Rainiers and Salt Lake Bees are not playing each other yet – but they played nearly identical games on Wednesday night.

Each team was on the road in the opening game of a five game series.

Each team went to the ninth inning trailing, 5-1.

Each team scored two runs in the top of the ninth.

Each team loaded the bases, putting the tying runs in scoring position and the go-ahead run at first base.

Each team then saw its rally fizzle out, and lost 5-3.

Tacoma lost at Tucson, and Salt Lake lost at Reno. The Bees still lead the division by four games, and now 12 games remain.

Tonight’s game is at 7:05 (Pacific), and you can hear it on South Sound Sports 850 AM, streaming right here, and available via the TuneIn app for iPads and smart phones. Tacoma starts LHP James Paxton (7-10, 4.26) against Tucson LHP Robbie Erlin (7-3, 4.87).


Good battle tonight between left-handed starting pitcher prospects. Let’s see if the Rainiers can even this series.
