Bees Fly In To Town

Tacoma pounded 16 hits but was unable to salvage a split of the Sacramento series, dropping the last game on Sunday 7-6.

Today the Rainiers welcome the Salt Lake Bees to town for the middle series of the 12-game homestand.

Salt Lake just finished a four-game home sweep over Reno, and they needed it: prior to the all-star break, Salt Lake lost 11 of 13 games. The Bees went into the break with the PCL’s worst record.

We have night games all week at 7:05, it’s not supposed to be 95 degrees anymore, so come on out to the park!

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma out-hit Sacramento 16-11 and the River Cats made four errors – yet somehow Sacramento beat Tacoma on Sunday afternoon, 7-6. The River Cats won the series, three games to one.

Roster Move: The Mariners optioned Jesus Montero to Tacoma. He went 3-for-10 with three walks in his brief stint with the Mariners. At post time I’m not sure if Montero is reporting today.

Opponent Affiliation: Los Angeles Angels.

Season Series: Salt Lake leads, 5-3.
