A Walk Through Salt Lake City

If you don’t mind some hills, Salt Lake City is a good walking city.

For a span of two-plus innings last night, Tacoma batters sure thought so.

After not taking a walk in the first five innings of Wednesday’s game, Tacoma drew nine walks during the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings of a 13-6 win over the Salt Lake Bees.

Bees pitchers recorded just six outs during the time they issued nine walks. It was not pretty baseball, but we’ll take it.

Due to all of the walks, Tacoma scored ten runs during the three innings while getting just five hits.

The Rainiers need a win tonight to get a series split, and then we move on to Vegas for the final four games of the season starting Friday night.
