Rainiers Hit By Mac Truck


Yesterday: Sacramento scored three runs in each of the first three innings, and beat Tacoma in a rain-shortened game, 10-5. Only five-and-a-half innings were completed, but that’s enough for an official game. Mac Williamson went 3-for-3 with seven RBI, making you wonder what he would’ve finished with if the game had gone nine innings. Tacoma has lost four straight games.

Roster Move: After an incredible 17 straight games with the opening day roster still intact, the Rainiers are going to have their first roster move today. Gotta wait for the Mariners to announce it.

Today: Sacramento (7-11) at Tacoma (10-7), 6:05.

Opponent Affiliation: San Francisco Giants.

Season Series: Sacramento leads, 2-0.

Starting Pitchers: LHP Matt Lujan (0-2, 4.85) at LHP James Paxton (1-2, 5.84).

Hot Rainiers: Chris Taylor has a career-best 14-game hitting streak, and he’s reached base in 16 straight games. He’s 23-for-57 during the hitting streak… Stefen Romero has a ten-game hitting streak… Tacoma’s dual closers Blake Parker and Mayckol Guaipe are a combined 7-for-7 in save opportunities.

Look Out For: Ryan Lollis never makes outs against Tacoma. He hit .409 against Tacoma last year, and he’s 4-for-6 with five runs scored in the first two games of this series… power prospect Mac Williamson has gone 11-for-20 with two homers over his last five games, and he’s 5-for-6 with eight RBI in this series.

Ex-Rainiers Alert: Sacramento has former Rainiers Miguel Olivo and Darren Ford on the team. Yes, that Miguel Olivo. He’s 37-years-old and has already hit two homers this year. Pitching coach Dwight Bernard had the same job for Tacoma for seven years.
