Here’s today’s look around the Mariners’ minor league system.
Class AAA Tacoma was rained out yesterday. And the forecast isn’t looking too great for today. As the report points out: The Rainiers have now endured 8 rain-altered games at home so far this season. Since April 3, Tacoma has now hosted 7 rain-outs, and 1 rain-shortened 7.0-inning game. The Rainiers have had a total of 3 doubleheaders, six 9.0-inning games, six 7.0-inning games and one 7.0-inning game that went 9.0 innings. Prior to 2014, Tacoma had sustained just 1 rained out game since Cheney Stadium underwent renovations prior to the start of the 2011 season.
Class AA Jackson blew a 1-0 lead in top of the ninth, losing 3-1. The Generals got another solid start from Cam Hobson, who pitched seven shutout innings, giving up four hits while walking two and striking out two. Hobson has now tossed 13 straight scoreless over his last two starts and allowed just one run in his last 19 innings pitched. Here’s the weekly column from Chris Harris on the Generals.
Class A High Desert picked up a 5-4 win with Steve Baron (remember him?) delivering a big RBI double in the eighth inning for the game winning hit. Gabriel Guerrero had his 12 game hitting streak snapped last night. DJ Peterson had two hits.
Class A Clinton had an offensive explosion, banging out 21 hits in a 16-13 win over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. The LumberKings scored five runs in the ninth to rally for the win. Second baseman Zach Shank went 4-for-5 with two RBI. Austin Wilson went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer and career-high six RBI.
