Tacoma Rainiers / PCL HEADLINES
Taijuan Walker brought his A game to the Dell Diamond in Round Rock on Thursday night at least until the field turned into a mud bowl.
The Rainiers "grand slam guy" was scratched from the lineup right before first pitch, and it ended up potentially making a big difference in Tacomas 6-1 loss at Albuquerque on Friday night.
Tom Wilhelmsen’s first start of the season didn’t go as planned for the Tacoma Rainiers.
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.
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.
