Rainiers Bats Go Quiet

May 28, 2016

Tacoma has had some trouble on offense the last two days, managing a total of just nine hits and two runs in back-to-back losses.

The Rainiers have lost back-to-back games for the first time in nearly a month – it last happened April 29-30 at Las Vegas.

Still, the Rainiers have the best record in the PCL at 29-19. We’ll see if they get back on the winning track this evening in game two of the New Orleans series.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma had just four hits in a 3-1 loss at New Orleans in the series opener on Friday night. Efren Navarro homered for the second straight game, but that was the extent of the Rainiers offense.

Roster Move: The Mariners called up Stefen Romero prior to last night’s game, leaving the Rainiers a man down for now.

Today: Tacoma (29-19) at New Orleans (20-27), 4:00 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Miami Marlins.

Season Series: New Orleans leads, 1-0.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Adrian Sampson (4-3, 3.32) at LHP Chris Reed (0-1, 4.80).

Hot RainiersJonathan Aro has allowed just one earned run on one hit over his last 11 innings, spanning nine appearances. They’re batting .032 against him during that time… Efren Navarro has homered in back-to-back games.

Look Out For: Tomas Telis – the switch-hitting catcher – has 15 hits during a seven-game hitting streak… former Rainiers infielder Robert Andino has an eight-game hitting streak, going 16-for-35… Matt Juengel has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, going 13-for-33.

Rainiers Settle For Split In Texas

May 27, 2016

The Rainiers dropped the final game in Round Rock on Thursday night, 4-1, and settled for a split of the four game series.

Tacoma is 11-13 in road games this year – a dramatic difference from the team’s amazing 18-5 home record.

The team has played six four-game series, and lost one: they dropped three of four at Vegas. The other five series have all been 2-2 splits.

Here’s the kicker, though: in all five of the splits, Tacoma held a 2-1 advantage going into the final game of the series… and lost the last game, for the split.

I don’t know what to make of that. Randomness? Bad luck? Something else?

We’ll see if it continues as the road trip moves on to New Orleans today.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma’s streak of consecutive scoreless innings pitched reached 27 before Round Rock scored two unearned runs with two outs in the sixth inning, leading to a 4-1 Express victory. Tacoma’s only run scored on an Efren Navarro homer in the second inning – other than that, there wasn’t much in the way of offense.

Today: Tacoma (29-18) at New Orleans (19-27), 5:00 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Miami Marlins.

Season Series: 0-0.

Starting Pitchers: LHP Brad Mills (0-0, 3.68) at LHP Clint Narveson (0-1, 5.63).

Narveson made the Marlins opening day roster as a relief pitcher, and now he’s starting in Triple-A.

Hot Rainiers: The offense got shut down yesterday by Nick Tepesch, effectively ending all of the streaks… Daniel Robertson has reached base in nine straight games; that’s about all we’ve got right now… How about a hot reliever? Jonathan Aro has allowed just one earned run on one hit over his last 11 innings, spanning nine appearances. They’re batting .032 against him during that time.

Look Out For: Tomas Telis – the switch-hitting catcher – has 14 hits during a six-game hitting streak… former Rainiers infielder Robert Andino has an eight-game hitting streak, going 16-for-35… Zephyr Field heavily favors pitchers so don’t be surprised if we see low-scoring games here.

Stan Naccarato, 1928-2016

May 26, 2016

We lost a local legend yesterday, when Stan Naccarato passed away at age 88.

Tacoma might not have Triple-A baseball today if it weren’t for the 25th hour efforts of Stan in 1971, when he hurriedly put together a local ownership group to purchase the team from the Chicago Cubs, who intended to move it to Wichita.

Naccarato then became the team’s General Manager and promotions guru, winning national acclaim for his work on the business side of the game.

Stan was a civic leader in many ways, but he was a baseball man first and foremost.

One of my favorite Naccarto notes is that he somehow became friends with Billy Martin, which lead to Tacoma being affiliated with the New York Yankees in 1978 in what I think we can all agree was a geographically ridiculous union. The Tacoma Yankees won the PCL championship.

Stan was a fixture at Cheney Stadium since 1960, and we are sad to see him go. Stan will be honored at Cheney next week when the Rainiers return from the current road trip.

Here’s the official statement from the team:

Stan Naccarato, the former President and General Manager of the Tacoma Twins, Yankees, Tugs, and Tigers, passed away at Tacoma General Hospital this morning. He was 88 years old.

“Stan was a wonderful friend and mentor, a leader of not only this organization for decades, but for the entire city,” Tacoma Rainiers team president Aaron Artman said. “He loved Tacoma maybe even more than he loved the Rainiers. We will honor him for the remainder of the 2016 season and remember the impact that he had on this city and this franchise forever.”

Naccarato was honored with the 1975 Minor League Baseball General Manager of the Year Award, the Larry McPhail Promotional Award, and the Sporting News General Manager of the Year Award.

The Rainiers will wear a commemorative patch on their jerseys and place a sign on the outfield wall in remembrance of Naccarato’s impact on the club and the community.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma pitched its second consecutive shutout in a 4-0 win at Round Rock. Joe Wieland worked the first 5.1 innings before leaving with tricep tightness – it’s a minor injury, but he’s questionable for his next start. Paul Fry, Jonathan Aro, David Rollins, and Mayckol Guaipe finished a five-pitcher, six-hit shutout. Rob Brantly‘s three-run homer was the big hit in the game.

Roster Move: Prior to last night’s game, the Mariners recalled infielder Luis Sardinas and optioned Chris Taylor back to Tacoma.

Today: Tacoma (29-17) at Round Rock (24-21), 5:05 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Texas Rangers.

Season Series: Tacoma leads, 2-1.

Starting Pitchers: LHP James Paxton (4-2, 4.54) at RHP Nick Tepesch (3-2, 3.72).

Hot Rainiers: Mike Baxter has reached base via hit or walk in 18 straight games, and Stefen Romero has reached in 16 straight games…Boog Powell has hit safely in six straight games, going 10-for-26.

Look Out For: Jurickson Profar has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games, but he’s just 2-for-11 in the series. He seems to be the likely candidate to replace Rangers second baseman Roughned Odor during his upcoming suspension.

Ex-Rainiers: Round Rock is loaded with ’em. James Jones and Tom Wilhelmsen are on the active roster while Justin Ruggiano is on the disabled list. Patrick Kivlehan is currently on waivers, but if he clears he’ll rejoin Round Rock.

PCL Game Reports:

  • Fresno smacked Oklahoma City last night, 8-1, but the big news is that Julio Urias was scratched from his start today… because the 19-year-old is going to the big leagues. He’ll start for the Dodgers tomorrow, becoming the first 19-year-old to start a major league game since Felix Hernandez in 2005. Before getting the news, Urias met with the Fresno (and L.A.) media yesterday.
  • Reno remains 6.5 games behind Tacoma, as the Aces used a six-run inning to win in New Orleans, 7-5. Ed Lucas hit his first homer as a member of the Aces.
  • Clayton Blackburn and Sacramento shut out the Sky Sox, 6-0.
  • Salt Lake’s nine-game home winning streak ended with a 9-7 loss to Memphis. The Bees trailed 9-3 going to the bottom of the ninth and nearly came back.
  • Albuquerque’s Tim Smalling had a big game in a 12-4 romp at Omaha.
  • Carlos Pimentel – the 2015 PCL Pitcher of the Year – had his best outing of a rough 2016 campaign in El Paso’s 9-1 win at Iowa.
  • Nashville scored twice in the 12th inning to beat Las Vegas, 5-3, for the Sounds 10th win in the last 11 games. The game had a strange ending.

Tacoma has a chance to win a road series tonight, and the pitching staff has delivered 22 straight scoreless innings. Let’s see if they can finish the job.


Rainiers Pitch First Shutout

May 25, 2016

Tacoma tossed its first shutout of the season last night in Round Rock, as Donn Roach, Mayckol Guaipe, and Blake Parker combined on a five-hitter. Tacoma won, 3-0.

Roach went the first seven innings, needing only 87 pitches to do so. He allowed just four hits – and half of them came to the first two batters in the first inning.

In Roach’s last three starts, he has given up three runs in 19.2 innings. He’s been on a nice roll lately.

Parker ended up getting his ninth save of the season, which was his 100th career minor league save.

The shutout lowered Tacoma’s team ERA to 4.01, which is tied with Omaha for second-best in the PCL. Nashville is way out in front of the pack with a 3.07 mark (note: Nashville’s new ballpark which opened last year is supposed to be a graveyard for hitters. We’ll find out in August).

Tacoma evened-up the series in Round Rock, and the team has won seven of its last eight games overall.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma pitched its first shutout of the season in a 3-0 win at Round Rock. Most of the offense came from the bottom three hitters in the lineup: Tyler Smith, Dario Pizzano, and Zach Shank combined to go 8-for-11 while generating two of Tacoma’s three runs.

Today: Tacoma (28-17) at Round Rock (24-20), 5:05 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Texas Rangers.

Season Series: Tied, 1-1.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Joe Wieland (3-3, 8.83) at RHP Nick Martinez (4-2, 5.26).

Hot Rainiers: Stefen Romero has reached base via hit or walk in 15 straight games…Luis Sardinas has a five-game hitting streak, going 10-for-19, but he may be on his way to Seattle (see below)… Boog Powell has hit safely in five straight games, going 9-for-22.

Look Out For: The shutout pretty much ended all Round Rock hitting streaks. The Express had tallied 70 hits in their previous four games… Patrick Cantwell has hit safely in eight straight – he did not play last night.

Ex-Rainiers: Round Rock is loaded with ’em. James Jones and Tom Wilhelmsen are on the active roster while Justin Ruggiano is on the disabled list. Patrick Kivlehan is currently on waivers, but if he clears he’ll rejoin Round Rock.

Win Streak Ends In Round Rock

May 24, 2016

Ike Davis spiked an early three-run homer, a Rainiers rally fell short, and Tacoma’s six-game win streak ended on Monday night in Round Rock, Texas.

Davis’s three-run shot to center in the second inning gave the Express a 3-0 lead, and they added another run on an RBI single in the fourth to make it 4-0.

Per usual, the Rainiers fought until the end and nearly completed a comeback.

Down 4-2 with one out in the ninth, runners were at first and second. Dario Pizzano sliced a single down the left field line, scoring one run while advancing the tying runner to third. However, Pizzano tried to stretch the hit into a double – which would have put the go-ahead run in scoring position – but the former Rainiers outfielder James Jones gunned him down at second base.

That brought Zach Shank to the plate with two outs and the tying runner at third, and he lined out to the right fielder to end the game.

It was a good first game to the series, which should continue to be entertaining: Round Rock is also hot right now, having won six of their last seven games.

However, the Express lost three key players prior to last night’s game: middle of the order sluggers Joey Gallo and Jared Hoying were called up by Texas, and Patrick Kivlehan was placed on waivers to open up a 40-man roster spot – so he’s unavailable for now.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Ike Davis hit a three-run homer, Tacoma couldn’t get anything going against major league veteran Kyle Lohse until the sixth inning, and Round Rock ended the Rainiers six-game win streak with a 4-3 decision on Monday night.

Today: Tacoma (27-17) at Round Rock (24-19), 5:05 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Texas Rangers.

Season Series: Round Rock leads, 1-0.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Donn Roach (3-2, 6.43) at RHP Chi-Chi Gonzalez (1-4, 6.12).

Hot Rainiers: Mike Baxter has a seven-game hitting streak, during which he has gone 8-for-27 with four home runs, and he has scored at least one run in each game… Mike Zunino has nine RBI over his last four games… Stefen Romero has reached base via hit or walk in 14 straight games… Luis Sardinas has a five-game hitting streak, going 10-for-19.

Look Out For: Jurickson Profar has an 11-game hitting streak, and both Patrick Cantwell and  Ryan Strausborger have hit safely in eight straight.

Ex-Rainiers: Round Rock is loaded with ’em. James Jones and Tom Wilhelmsen are on the active roster while Justin Ruggiano is on the disabled list. Patrick Kivlehan is currently on waivers, but if he clears he’ll rejoin Round Rock.

Rainiers Finish Sweep & Hit The Road

May 23, 2016

Tacoma completed the four-game sweep of Iowa with an 8-1 victory on a damp Sunday afternoon, wrapping up another terrific homestand.

The Rainiers went 7-1 on the homestand, improving their record at Cheney Stadium to 18-5.

But now it’s time for a road trip, and the Rainiers are just 9-11 on the road.

Now, that’s not a bad road record. You’d like to get it up to or over the .500 mark, and as long as the team keeps cleaning up at home all will be fine.

The big issue in road games has been the starting pitching: Rainiers starters have a 7.55 ERA in road games, allowing 80 earned runs in 95.1 innings pitched.

Sixteen of the first 20 road games have been played in high-scoring ballparks: Albuquerque (8), El Paso (4) and Las Vegas (4).

The staff should get a break on this road trip. Round Rock’s Dell Diamond plays pretty fair unless the wind is howling, and New Orleans plays in an honest-to-goodness pitcher’s park. Maybe that will help Tacoma’s starting pitchers get rolling on the road.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: Tacoma’s bullpen pitched 6.2 shutout innings after a rain delay caused starter Brad Mills to have a short outing, and the Rainiers finished a sweep of Iowa with an 8-1 win on Sunday. Boog Powell, Mike Zunino, and Stefen Romero homered for the Rainiers.

Today: Tacoma (27-16) at Round Rock (23-19), 5:05 (Pacific).

Opponent Affiliation: Texas Rangers.

Season Series: 0-0.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Adrian Sampson (4-2, 3.00) at RHP Kyle Lohse (1-0, 5.06).

Hot Rainiers: Mike Baxter has a six-game hitting streak, during which he has gone 7-for-23 with four home runs, and he has scored at least one run in each game… Mike Zunino has eight RBI over his last three games, and he has a five-game hitting streak… Stefen Romero has reached base via hit or walk in 13 straight games.

Look Out For: Everybody. Round Rock just won three straight games in El Paso, scoring double-digits in each game. All told, the team scored 43 runs on 60 hits the last three days, with a team batting average of .451 (60-for-133)… Jurickson Profar has a ten-game hitting streak, and Ryan Strausborger has hit safely in seven straight.

Ex-Rainiers: Round Rock is loaded with ’em. James Jones, Patrick Kivlehan, and Tom Wilhelmsen are on the active roster while Justin Ruggiano is on the disabled list.

Rainiers Go For Sweep

May 22, 2016

Tacoma wraps up the eight-game homestand today with a day game against the Iowa Cubs.

The Rainiers won three-of-four against Omaha, and have now won the first three against Iowa. That makes for a 6-1 record on this homestand, raising the Rainiers season-long record at Cheney Stadium to 17-5.

Tacoma has won 11 of its last 12 home games.

Overall, Tacoma is 26-16. Last night’s win put Tacoma ten games over the .500 mark for the first time since July 29, 2013 when the club was 60-50.

The Rainiers have already had one four-game sweep this year, against Salt Lake, May 2-5. Let’s see if they can get another.

RAINIERS ROUND-UP

Yesterday: The Rainiers won their fifth in a row on Saturday night, walking off Iowa 7-6. Luis Sardinas went 4-for-5, including the game-winning RBI single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. The Tacoma bullpen was stellar once again, working 3.1 scoreless innings.

Roster Move: Mariners shortstop Ketel Marte was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained thumb, so they called up Chris Taylor to replace him. The Rainiers are adding infielder Zach Shank from Double-A Jackson, and he will hopefully be here in time for today’s game.

Today: Iowa (18-22) at Tacoma (26-16), 1:35.

Opponent Affiliation: Chicago Cubs.

Season Series: Tacoma leads, 3-0.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Drew Rucinski (2-3, 6.18) at LHP Brad Mills (0-0, 3.60).

Hot Rainiers: Mike Baxter has a six-game hitting streak, during which he has gone 7-for-23 with four home runs, and he has scored at least one run in each game… Dario Pizzano had his ten-game hitting streak end last night; he went 13-for-33 during the run… Stefen Romero has reached base via hit or walk in 12 straight games.

Look Out ForTaylor Davis is 4-for-8 in this series, which is just more of the same: last year in a four-game series against Tacoma, Davis went 8-for-17 with five doubles… John Andreoli is having an interesting series: he’s 4-for-13 with two homers, and he has struck out eight times.

From the story: “Saturday, a fan got hit with a flying bat in the ninth inning and an Isotopes employee dressed as a jar of salsa during an in-game chile race promotion went down with an injured left leg and had to be helped off the field in the fifth inning.”
  • El Paso pulled off a difficult trick: they scored eight runs in one inning and lost the game. Round Rock got ’em, 13-11, as Jurickson Profar went 4-for-5 with five RBI.
  • T.J. Rivera keeps hitting, and Las Vegas edged Colorado Springs, 4-3. Apparently the Mets considered sending Matt Harvey to Las Vegas.
  • Oklahoma City’s Zach Lee became the PCL’s first six-game winner in a 5-4 victory over Salt Lake. Julio Urias has not been called up yet.

The homestand ends today. We have a rare postgame flight (yay!) to Austin and will bus from there up to Round Rock for the series which starts Monday evening.
