Rainiers Look To Split Reno Series Today

Tough loss for the Rainiers last night, when immediately following a game-tying homer the team allowed four runs on just one hit. Walks, a wild pitch, a hit batter, and a three-run homer by Oswaldo Arcia gave Reno the win.


Yesterday: Immediately after Dan Vogelbach hit a game-tying three-run homer in the top of the eighth inning, Tacoma surrendered four runs in the bottom of the frame and lost in Reno on Saturday night, 9-5. Tacoma needs a win today to split the series.
