Chihuahuas Take Another

El Paso edged the Rainiers on Sunday evening, 5-4.

The game featured good starting pitching from Matt Wisler of El Paso and Jordan Pries for Tacoma.

Pries allowed three runs in the first inning, then settled down and looked real sharp for five scoreless innings. Wisler had his second straight strong start against Tacoma, allowing one run in six innings.

The Rainiers comeback bid was usurped by needless baserunning mistakes in the late innings – just another thing to worry about during this dreadful run of baseball. Tacoma has lost eight of its last nine games, and has gone 5-20 over the last 25.

El Paso has been particularly tough on Tacoma, winning eight of the first ten games between the two teams. The Rainiers will try to get back in the win column tonight.

Monday’s game starts at 5:35 (Pacific) – the Alaska Airlines Pregame Show begins at 5:20 on South Sound Sports 850 AM and streaming online right here. Tacoma starts LHP James Gillheeney (1-4, 7.24) against El Paso RHP Odrisamer Despaigne* (0-1, 9.00).


Daily reminder: the Rainiers return home Thursday night to play Albuquerque, and the game is on national TV. We’d love to have a big crowd for that…
