Rainiers Having Trouble In Vegas

The Rainiers lost another one-run game in Las Vegas on Sunday, and so far this place has not been friendly to Tacoma.

Tacoma is 1-5 after six games at Cashman Field, with two games remaining. Tacoma’s record in all other games: 32-18.

When the Rainiers were here in April, they got wiped out. The scores in the losses were 8-1, 14-6, and 7-4.

This trip has been different. A pair of one-run losses, each of which manager Pat Listach described as a winnable game if the club hadn’t made a couple of mistakes.

There is still a chance to salvage this series, with two games left.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma had just one hit after the sixth inning and lost in Las Vegas, 6-5. It was the second straight one-run loss on this trip. Zach Shank hit two solo home runs – it was the first multiple-homer game of his career.

Roster Move: The Mariners have activated Ketel Marte from the disabled list, and they optioned Stefen Romero to Tacoma. I’m not sure when Romero is reporting.

Today: Tacoma (33-23-1) at Las Vegas (30-26), 7:05.

Opponent Affiliation: New York Mets.

Season Series: Las Vegas leads, 5-1.

The heat here has been incredible. It was 108 at the end of Sunday’s game, and it’s not supposed to cool down until after we leave town.
