Sorry for now minor league report yesterday, but I was indisposed. Here's yesterday's report
But we have one today.
Lots of runs and hits last night for Mariners minor league teams, unfortunately their respective pitching also gave up lots of runs and hits.
The Tacoma Rainiers were in Las Vegas and lost 11-4 to the 51s. Starter Chris Seddon gave up five runs on nine hits six innings pitched and reliever Dan Cortes also had a rough outing giving up four runs on five hits, including two home runs.
