RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Rainiers pitchers issued a season-high ten walks in a 4-3 loss to Fresno on Saturday evening. Tacoma had eight hits but managed just three runs, with Patrick Kivlehan pulling a homer to left field. Emilio Pagan made his Triple-A debut, pitching 2.1 scoreless innings from the bullpen.

Today: Fresno (31-36-1) at Tacoma (38-30-1), 1:35.

Opponent Affiliation: Houston Astros.

Season Series: Tied, 3-3.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Mike Hauschild (5-6, 3.50) at RHP Donn Roach (4-4, 4.72).

Hot Rainiers: Chris Taylor has reached base with a hit or a walk in 18 straight games, and in 57 of his 62 games this season… Mike Zunino is warming up again: he’s 6-for-12 during a three-game hitting streak.

Look Out For: Top prospect A.J. Reed was a factor yesterday, pulling a long home run to right field and then blooping a game-tying RBI double to left field in the seventh inning… catcher Tyler Heineman is 9-for-20 during a six-game hitting streak… the Astros optioned first baseman Tyler White to Fresno.
