Quick note: DJ Peterson, the Mariners’ top pick from last year’s draft, was lifted in the third inning of last night’s game for Class A High Desert. According to Chris Gwynn, the Mariners’ director of minor league operations, Peterson had a tight glute muscle and was pulled for precautionary reasons.

Class AAA Tacoma got a pair of home runs from Chris Taylor and a home run from James Jones, who just returned from the big leagues, in a rain shortened 8-5 win.  Here’s the highlight of Taylor’s second homer. Taylor has hit safely in his last 10 of his last 11 games with 7 multi-hit contests, batting .477 (21×44) with 11 runs scored, 6 doubles, 2 triples, 2 home runs, 9 RBI, 3 walks and 4 stolen  bases. Overall he is hitting .364 (24×66) with 13 runs scored, 8 doubles, 2 triples, 2 home runs, 12 RBI, 5 walks and 4 stolen bases.

Tonight’s Rainiers game has been postponed because of weather.

Class AA Jackson had the extra innings special last night, going 18 innings and losing 7-4. Here’s Josh Lemon’s game story from the Jackson Sun.

Even with Peterson leaving early, Class A High Desert scored a season-high in runs in a 14-9 win.

Joe DeCarlo had a big eighth-inning RBI triple to help Clinton to an 8-7 win over Quad Cities.
