Rainiers Bats Go Quiet

Tacoma has had some trouble on offense the last two days, managing a total of just nine hits and two runs in back-to-back losses.

The Rainiers have lost back-to-back games for the first time in nearly a month – it last happened April 29-30 at Las Vegas.

Still, the Rainiers have the best record in the PCL at 29-19. We’ll see if they get back on the winning track this evening in game two of the New Orleans series.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma had just four hits in a 3-1 loss at New Orleans in the series opener on Friday night. Efren Navarro homered for the second straight game, but that was the extent of the Rainiers offense.

Roster Move: The Mariners called up Stefen Romero prior to last night’s game, leaving the Rainiers a man down for now.

Today: Tacoma (29-19) at New Orleans (20-27), 4:00 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Miami Marlins.

Season Series: New Orleans leads, 1-0.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Adrian Sampson (4-3, 3.32) at LHP Chris Reed (0-1, 4.80).

Hot RainiersJonathan Aro has allowed just one earned run on one hit over his last 11 innings, spanning nine appearances. They’re batting .032 against him during that time… Efren Navarro has homered in back-to-back games.

Look Out For: Tomas Telis – the switch-hitting catcher – has 15 hits during a seven-game hitting streak… former Rainiers infielder Robert Andino has an eight-game hitting streak, going 16-for-35… Matt Juengel has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, going 13-for-33.
