Aces Get Even

Reno took the second game of the series last night, and the Rainiers are back at .500 on the year. The Rainiers were short in the bullpen (due to call-ups and an injury to today’s scheduled starter) and it may have had an impact on the result last night.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Reno’s Jamie Romak and Todd Glaesmann each hit two-out, two-run homers in the bottom of the sixth inning, snapping a 5-5 tie and leading the Aces to a 9-5 win.

Roster Moves: Before yesterday’s game Seattle called up Jesus Montero, Danny Farquhar, and Vidal Nuno. Mayckol Guaipe was optioned to Tacoma.

Today: Tacoma (44-44) at Reno (41-47), 7:05.

Opponent Affiliation: Arizona Diamondbacks.

Season Series: Tied, 4-4.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Andrew Kittredge (0-0, 5.74) at RHP Allen Wesbter (2-2, 8.07)

It’s a ‘bullpen day’ for the Rainiers, because Sam Gaviglio is missing the start with a sore elbow. At this point we don’t know what Gaviglio’s status is moving forward.

Hot Rainiers: Steve Baron extended his hitting streak to seven games. He’s batting .358 in 19 games since being promoted from Double-A Jackson. Stefen Romero has 15 RBI in his last ten games.

Look Out For: Danny Dorn is 5-for-7 on the series – he’s hitting an amazing .434 in over 150 at-bats in the PCL, but has hit .172 in 29 at-bats in the big leagues (primarily as a pinch-hitter, which is a tough job).

  1. Mike, I think the races in all of the divisions are pretty much done. Rainiers have 3 big obstacles giving them a tough road. M’s, Tony D. and the Astro’s system. Eating crow about Listach glad to be wrong about him.
