Aces Hold Off Rainiers

Tacoma is going for its first-ever series win in Reno, and we knew it wouldn’t be easy.

After taking the first two games of the series with a 28-hit attack, the Rainiers bats slowed down and Reno took game three on Saturday night, 7-1.

Jesus Montero doubled in a run in the first inning, continuing his hot hitting. But after the first, Tacoma had just five singles the remainder of the game.

Tacoma starter Jordan Pries – who has been excellent almost all season – had a rough start. He allowed seven runs in four innings, including a game-breaking three-run homer to Garrett Weber with two outs in the fourth inning.

The Rainiers can still win the series with a victory this evening.

Sunday’s game starts at 7:05 PM (Pacific) – the Alaska Airlines Pregame Show begins at 6:50 on South Sound Sports 850 AM and streaming online right here. Tacoma starts RHP Matt Palmer (1-7, 4.61) against Reno RHP Bo Schultz (7-6, 5.48).
