Let’s Play Two!

Wednesday’s game was rained out, and we’re making it up with a doubleheader tonight. It will be two seven-inning games, starting at 6:05.

It started pouring rain at 7:00 and it lasted well past 10:00 last night. Hopefully we’re in good shape to play tonight.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: … and sometimes, it rains.

Roster Moves: Tacoma has temporarily added 19-year-old Michael Rivera from extended spring training to provide additional pitching depth.

Today: El Paso (3-3) at Tacoma (2-3), doubleheader, 6:05.

Opponent Affiliation: San Diego Padres.

Season Series: Tacoma leads, 1-0.

Starting Pitchers:

  • G1: RHP Matt Magill (0-0, 1.50) at RHP Sam Gaviglio (–).
  • G2: RHP Tyrell Jenkins (1-0, 0.00) at RHP Chris Heston (0-0, 5.40).

Sam Gaviglio has been scheduled to pitch three times this season. All three times the game has been rained out. Hopefully that streak ends today.

Hot Rainiers: Tyler O’Neill has had a flair for making grand entrances. He hit a long three-run homer in his second at-bat at Sacramento on Saturday, and then homered in his first Cheney Stadium plate appearance Tuesday.

Look Out For: Triple-A veteran Jamie Romak has already hit three home runs… outfielder Jose Pirela is 3-for-3 stealing bases.

Ex-Rainiers and Locals: Former Rainiers reliever Logan Bawcom is now a Chihuahua. He signed with the Padres as a free agent during the offseason… El Paso pitching coach Bronswell Patrick pitched for the Tacoma Tigers for two years, 1993-1994.
