Rainiers Game Thread
Since it’s an off day for the Mariners, let me encourage you to tune into the dulcet tones of Mike Curto as the Rainiers take on the Albuquerque Isotopes in what is very likely to turn into another football game. The Rainiers won 19-9 yesterday, as Adam Jones doubled his season HR total with two bombs and Wladimir Balentien also took advantage of the launching pad in New Mexico.
Justin Lehr goes for the Rainiers, while the Isotopes hand the ball to former 1st round pick Kenny Baugh. He was the 11th pick in the 2001 draft, had shoulder surgery a few months later, and has spent the last five years trying to get his arm strength back.
During the rain delay, Rainiers announcer Mike Curto was kind enough to answer some questions in the thread below. Check it out if you missed it.
