The Rainiers benefited from a pair of dropped fly ball by Sacramento in a 6-4 win. Brandon Maurer got his first Triple A win, but only made it four innings. Dustin Ackley also made a nice lunging catch in the outfield.
Taijuan Walker had another good outing, going six innings and giving up two runs on three hits with seven strikeouts and one walk, but Double A Jackson still lost 4-1 to Birmingham.
Jabari Blash hit his 14th homer of the season, but High Desert still lost 4-3.
Class A Everett opened the season with a 6-4 win. Top pick DJ Peterson isn't with the team. He will join the Aqua Sox in a few days.
Never miss a local story.
David Krueger has this good story on the Seager brothers. Justin Seager will be playing for Everett this season.
