Rainiers at Safeco
Playoff baseball returns to Safeco Field tonight, as the Tacoma Rainiers host the Sacramento Rivercats in game three of their PCL playoff series. The Rainiers lead 2-0 and can win the series with a victory tonight, or tomorrow, or even Sunday. They’re in a pretty good position, obviously.
Tonight’s game is at 7:00, and you can buy your $20 ticket here. You’ll get a great seat in the lower bowl, and get a first hand look at the guys who will probably make up the next good Mariners team. Dustin Ackley launched a grand slam last night, and Justin Smoak has made just one out in 11 plate appearances so far in the series. Toss in some hilarious Greg Halman at-bats (he might hit one out of Safeco, or he might not hit a ball all night) and a chance to see a celebration if the Rainiers win, and it should make for a fun evening.
Go to Safeco. Cheer like crazy.
