The Rainiers had their game against Albuquerque rained out. It wasn’t a tarp issue since their grounds crew is top notch and would never make such a mistake. It’s just what happens in the Puget Sound in April. Tacoma will make up the game as part of doubleheader on June 6 at Cheney Stadium.
Class AA Jackson rolled to a 6-1 win. The Generals scored three runs in the sixth inning and tacked on three more in the later innings. Jamal Austin had two hits and two RBI. He has hit safely in Jackson’s first three games, including two multi-hit games. Prospect Victor Sanchez makes his Class AA debut today.
