Tacoma Rainiers Gamethread
With the M’s off tonight, why not check in on the Tacoma Rainiers and rehabbing CF Franklin Gutierrez? Brian Sweeney gets the start for Tacoma vs. Salt Lake, who are starting ex-Mariner David Pauley. If that’s not your idea of an awesome match-up, let me sweeten the pot a bit: injured Angels reliever LaTroy Hawkins is set to make a rehab appearance of his own. How about THAT? Gametime’s 7:00pm.
Gutierrez leads off tonight, and the line-up also includes Carlos Peguero, Carlos Triunfel, Luis Jimenez and Mike Wilson. If you’re in the South Sound, tune in to AM 850 to hear the peerless Mike Curto’s call. You can listen through the magic of computers via MiLB gameday audio (which is free) here. You’re probably going to want to do so given this exchange with Jeff Sullivan. If you’d like to follow along via GameDay, that link’s here.
