Rainiers Held to One Run in Big Loss to San Antonio
San Antonio, TX - Chris Mariscal slugged his second home run, accounting for Tacoma's only run, as the Rainiers suffered a 15-1 defeat against the San Antonio Missions on Thursday night at Nelson W. Wolff Stadium.
Mariscal led off the top of the third inning with a solo blast, cutting the deficit at the time, 8-1. The third baseman had one of Tacoma's (32-35) five hits and drew one of its three walks against the Missions (41-26).
Justus Sheffield (2-6) was chased in the second inning after surrendering the first eight San Antonio runs. Reggie McClain allowed the next four over 3 1/3 innings and Darin Gillies was tagged for three runs in 1 1/3 frames.
