Tacoma, WA (5/14/22) – The Tacoma Rainiers (11-24) had their modest two-game win streak snapped early on Saturday evening, losing 9-3 to the Reno Aces (17-18). Tacoma will attempt to split the week-long series in a Sunday matinee.

A Buddy Kennedy RBI single in the first inning (Jake McCarthy single) staked Reno to an early 1-0 advantage. The Rainiers tied the game with a Forrest Wall RBI single in the third, scoring Cesar Izturis, Jr. who led off with a walk and stole second base. Reno quickly re-took the lead in the fourth, on a Dominic Miroglio solo shot to left field, his third homer.

Trailing 2-1 in the fourth, Tacoma took their first lead of the game, as Marcus Wilson led off with a walk and scored all the way from first when Joe Odom gapped a double to left. Odom moved over on an Izturis ground out, and scored on a Miguel Perez RBI single up the middle as the Rainiers went on top 3-2.

A half-inning later, the Aces executed the fourth lead change of the day, with an eight-batter, four-run inning. Former Rainier Braden Bishop hit a three-run homer to the opposite field in right, his first of the season. Miroglio doubled and scored on a Camden Duzenack RBI single. It was 8-3 after a Stone Garrett two-run homer in the sixth (McCarthy triple).

Reno starter Dan Straily worked five innings for the win: 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K.

7,208 fans took in the game, Tacoma’s second season-high crowd in as many nights, and 171 more patrons than the 7,037 that witnessed an 8-6 Rainiers win on Friday.

The series finale is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Cheney Stadium, a 1:35 p.m. first pitch. LHP Nick Margevicius will start for Tacoma, opposite RHP Corbin Martin for Reno.
