Rainiers Look To Even Series With ‘Topes


Yesterday: Tacoma hit three solo homers but didn’t have much additional offense in a 7-3 series-opening loss to Albuquerque. Danny Muno and Tuffy Gosewisch hit back-to-back homers in the seventh inning.

Roster Move: Prior to last night’s game, the Rainiers activated reliever Ryan Kelly from the disabled list, and placed reliever Pat Light on the disabled list.

Today: Albuquerque (39-41) at Tacoma (41-38), 7:05.

Opponent Affiliation: Colorado Rockies.

Season Series: Tacoma leads, 4-3.

Starting Pitchers: LHP Ryan Carpenter (3-6, 5.13) at RHP Chase De Jong (3-3, 5.93).

Hot RainiersAndrew Aplin has an eight-game hitting streak, and he is 14-for-40 with 11 RBI over his last 15 games… Leonys Martin hit .327 with five homers in June, and he has been successful in his last 16 stolen base attempts… Tyler O’Neill has reached base in 11 straight games, with 13 hits and ten walks during that time. He’s homered in back-to-back games.

Look Out For: Infielder Ryan McMahon has been the big story for the Isotopes, batting .427 in 27 games since being promoted from Double-A Hartford. He’s had four games of four-or-more hits, and he had back-to-back two-homer games against Fresno, June 15-16.

Ex-Rainiers and Local Guys: Albuquerque doesn’t have any – unless you want to count Ryan Carpenter, who was born and raised in Arizona but played college baseball at Gonzaga.
