Tacoma Rainiers / PCL HEADLINES
FRESNO, Calif.—The Tacoma Rainiers’ string of 47 consecutive games in sole possession of first place came to an end Sunday evening in Fresno.
FRESNO, Calif. — With three big swings by Tacoma designated hitter Rich Poythress, the Rainiers’ six-game losing streak became a thing of the past.
Even another solid outing from Taijuan Walker couldn't stop the first-place Rainiers losing streak, as Tacoma quietly lost to Fresno on Friday night, 3-2.
FRESNO, Calif. — The most recent game of the Tacoma Rainiers’ season-long, five-game losing streak was not like the first four.
Blake Beavan’s struggles continued against the Reno Aces.
The Tacoma Rainiers bullpen bounced back in a big way, shutting down the Salt Lake Bees in the final three innings of a 7-5 win Friday night.
In the ninth, Salt Lake scored four runs on one swing: a walk-off grand slam by Kole Calhoun, and the Bees claimed a 7-3 victory over the Tacoma Rainiers in the opening game of a four-game series.
A day after registering his team-high fourth four-hit game this season, Nate Tenbrink smacked a trio of singles, leading Tacoma to its third consecutive victory with a 5-2 win over visiting Colorado Springs.
One is the teams top power hitter. The other strikes out more than a batter per inning. And that is why the Pacific Coast League-leading Tacoma Rainiers are sending slugger Carlos Peguero and reliever Brian Moran to the Triple-A All-Star Game.
On Thursday, Tacoma Rainiers manager John Stearns reveled in the news that shortstop Brad Miller was headed to the big leagues. But on Friday, Stearns faced the implications of filling out a lineup without Miller. Or Nick Franklin. Or Dustin Ackley. Or Mike Zunino.
After two months away, Danny Hultzens return to the mound for the Tacoma Rainiers could hardly have gone better. The top-tier Seattle Mariners prospect threw six shutout innings in leading the Rainiers to a 2-0 win over the Las Vegas 51s on Thursday at Cheney Stadium.
The Colorado Springs Sky Sox lead all of professional baseball in hitting triples, as the Rainiers were reminded in an 8-3 loss Friday night.
The Colorado Springs Sky Sox starting lineup is heavily left-handed. They started six left-handed hitters and had another one on the bench Thursday night.
The Tacoma Rainiers batted Dustin Ackley, Alex Liddi, and Carlos Peguero in the 3-4-5 spots in the lineup Wednesday afternoon. The trio combined for eight hits, nine runs, and nine RBI as the Rainiers blew out the Sky Sox, 16-4.
Two different Sacramento outfielders lost track of two consecutive fly balls in the twilight sky, letting routine outs fall in for doubles. The plays resulted in two crucial runs as the Rainiers claimed a 6-4 victory at Raley Field in the opener of a four-game series Friday night.
