Tacoma Rainiers Doubleheader Game Thread
With the M’s on a travel day, check out the Rainiers double header tonight against the Nashville Sounds. Blake Beavan starts game 1 for Tacoma against Brewers fringe prospect Amaury Rivas. As usual, you can catch Mike Curto’s call on AM 850 in the south sound or streaming on-line here. Nashville’s mired in last place in their division, and so their manager decided to send in for some reinforcements. Here’s the line-up card he submitted to Tacoma for Game 1 (hat tip Mike Curto).
Game 2 features the M’s system debut of knuckle-baller Charlie Haeger. Haeger was signed as a minor league free agent late last year, but a back injury limited him to a single spring training inning. You may remember Haeger from his Dodger debut last year, when he struck out 12 Florida Marlins in 6 innings. Just 6 appearances later, he was DFA’d.
