Reno Salvages Split

The Reno Aces managed to avoid their first-ever home series loss to Tacoma by winning the final two games, including an 11-7 decision on Friday night.

Tacoma had some untimely errors which led to runs, and while the offense did produce it wasn’t enough to claim a victory.

So the Rainiers went 2-2 in Reno – certainly not a bad result, but a little disappointing after Tacoma won the first two games of the series.

Now we move on to Stage 2 of the Rainiers longest road trip of the season: yet another series with Las Vegas.

By the time this series in Vegas ends, Tacoma will have played Las Vegas 11 times in the last 19 games. It was supposed to be 12 out of 20, but one game in Tacoma was rained out and rescheduled for later in the season.

Las Vegas just swept a road series at Salt Lake, and their record of 25-10 is the best in all of Triple-A baseball. The Rainiers have played them tough, though: Tacoma is 3-4 against Las Vegas so far this season.

Saturday’s game starts at 7:05 – the Alaska Airlines Pregame Show begins at 6:50 on South Sound Sports 850 AM and streaming online right here. Tacoma starts RHP Andrew Carraway (2-1, 3.38) against Las Vegas RHP Noah Syndergaard (4-2, 3.58).

That’s it for today – it’s a travel day, gotta shut down the computer and keep moving.
