Win Streak Ends In Albuquerque

Tacoma’s six-game winning streak came to an end on Saturday night in Albuquerque, with a 6-3 loss to the Isotopes.

The winning streak was Tacoma’s longest since a seven-gamer from June 12-18, 2014.

A few notes:

  • The Rainiers outscored the opponents 35-7 during the streak.
  • Tacoma’s starting pitchers went 6-0 with a 1.19 ERA.
  • The bullpen allowed one (1) run in 16.1 innings of work.

That was a fun week.

Time for our annual Ralph Kiner quote:

“It’s Mother’s Day, so happy birthday to all of the moms out there!”


Yesterday: Shane Carle of Albuquerque got hit hard by the Rainiers twice in April, but on Saturday he was a new man. Carle limited Tacoma to four hits and one run over six innings to get the win. Down 6-1 going to the ninth, Tacoma scored twice and loaded the bases before making the final out. For the first time in his career, Mike Zunino played a game at Isotopes Park without hitting a home run.

Today: Tacoma (17-12) at Albuquerque (17-13), 12:35 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Colorado Rockies.

Season Series: Tacoma leads, 6-4.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Donn Roach (2-2, 8.22) at LHP Ryan Carpenter (2-2, 4.34).

Carpenter leads the PCL with 35 strikeouts.

Hot Rainiers: Shawn O’Malley is 11-for-23 during a seven-game hitting streak… Daniel Robertson has gone 9-for-23 over his last six games… if the Rainiers hit a bunch of homers today, credit the dessert at the hotel restaurant in Albuquerque. I’ll explain tomorrow if it happens.

Look Out For: Mike Tauchman carries a ten-game hitting streak into tonight, and he’s reached base in 25 straight games… Jordan Patterson has reached base in 25 of 27 games this season… Brandon Barnes has hit safely in all six games since being sent to Triple-A by the Rockies… Tom Murphy drove in four runs yesterday.
