Rainiers Go For Series Win

Tacoma has won only one series in Reno, ever, but the team has a chance to take this series tonight.

The Rainiers won a three-game series at Reno in 2015, but are 20-50 all-time at Greater Nevada Field which opened in 2009.

With the series-opening win on Tuesday, and the fact that this is a three-game series, Tacoma has a chance to take the series tonight. Last night Reno evened it up with a 6-3 win.

Tacoma will try to win this series with third base coach Denny Hocking filling in as manager. Pat Listach is on his Mariners-required four-day vacation starting today.

Hocking has already filled in for three games this season when Listach was called up to help Seattle. He’s 2-1 as a fill-in skipper.

After tonight’s game the Rainiers hop on a bus and drive through the mountains to Sacramento for a four-game, three-day series which starts on Friday night.


Yesterday: Reno erased a 3-1 deficit by scoring four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, with PCL All-Star Oswaldo Arcia‘s three-run homer the go-ahead hit, and beat Tacoma 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Today: Tacoma (44-40) at Reno (51-35), 7:05.

Opponent Affiliation: Arizona Diamondbacks.

Season Series: Reno leads, 7-3.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Chase De Jong (3-4, 5.54) at RHP Jake Buchanan (2-2, 4.75).

Buchanan was just acquired by Reno – he made eight starts in the PCL for Iowa in April and May, and has also pitched in the majors for Cincinnati this year.
