10:05 AM Start Today

Early game today!

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Nashville scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning, and that was enough to earn a 2-1 win over Tacoma. The teams combined for just seven hits – four by Tacoma. After a rough first inning, Tacoma starter Forrest Snow retired 15 straight batters.

‘Magic Number’: 16. That’s the total number of Tacoma wins + Fresno losses needed for the Rainiers to clinch the Pacific-North division title (without resorting to tiebreakers). Should Reno pass Fresno and move into second place, we’ll have to recompute this.

Roster Moves: Tacoma added two catchers yesterday: Marcus Littlewood was promoted from Double-A Jackson, as was P.J. Jones. Jones, the Rainiers bullpen catcher who was activated and sent to AA a few days ago, remains active on Tacoma’s roster for now.

Today: Tacoma (71-52-1) at Nashville (71-53), 10:05 AM (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Oakland A’s.

Season Series: Nashville leads, 1-0.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Jarrett Grube (1-2, 3.97) at LHP Dillon Overton (10-5, 3.51)

Hot Rainiers: Stefen Romero is 6-for-12 with two doubles and a homer over his last three games, but has missed the last two games with a stiff back… Dan Vogelbach has drawn at least one walk in 11 of the last 12 games… Mike Freeman went 0-for-4 yesterday, ending his ten-game Tacoma hitting streak.

Look Out For: Renato Nunez saw his 13-game hitting streak end last night… Jaycob Brugman has a nine-game hitting streak, and he has reached base safely in 17 straight games… Arismendy Alcantara has reached base via hit or walk in 12 straight games.
