Here is a recap of the day’s events.

Tim Lopes: (1-for-5), HR, RBI

Pedro Severino: (2-for-4), 2B

Matthew Batten: (2-for-4), R, BB, 2 SB

On a chilly night in Tacoma, the Rainiers got off to a three-run lead due to a rocky start from Jay Groome. Tim Lopes got a rally started in the top of the fourth with a solo homer, sparking a three-run rally to tie the game.

The Rainiers eventually re-took the lead for good. Drew Carlton allowed the seventh run for Tacoma. Michel Baez and Domingo Tapia each turned in scoreless innings to finish the game for El Paso.


San Antonio Missions (4-7), Lost to Corpus Christi Hooks 7-2

Jackson Wolf: 4 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 8 K

Pedro Castellanos: (2-for-3), 2 HR, 2 RBI, BB

The Hooks jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the third due to a Kenedy Corona three-run homer, and they never looked back. The Missions’ only offense came from the bat of Pedro Castellanos, who homered twice.

The Hooks put the game away in the eighth with four more runs against reliever CD Pelham.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (3-8), Lost to Peoria Chiefs 6-3

Garrett Hawkins: 4 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Jakob Marsee: (3-for-5)

Kervin Pichardo: (2-for-3), R

Nathan Martorella: (1-for-5), HR, 3 RBI

Both starting pitchers started out strongly, with only one total run being scored in the game until the bottom of fifth. Three runs came home to score for Peoria due to two singles and a balk by reliever Ethan Routzahn. He was eventually charged with four earned runs.

Fort Wayne attempted a comeback in the top of the sixth with a three-run homer by Nathan Martorella, cutting the deficit to one. Peoria added on with a run in the sixth and seventh to put the game away late.

It’s worth noting that top prospect Jackson Merrill was lifted midgame. No reason was given.
