step- The El Paso Chihuahua lost money for the second time in a row at the beginning of the 2021 3A Western Conference League, and fell to Tacoma Rainiers 9-4 this Saturday night.
Encouraged by fans at Cheney Stadium, the Rainiers took the lead with a three-game winning streak at the bottom of the second game.
Jack Reinheimer put the short grid on the ground, and Jantzen Witte on the busy ball added the first row. It was Jarred Kelenic’s turn, he stopped for a second and Luis Liberato was able to make it onto the roster. Braden Bishop also put down the shortstop, and Dillon Thomas slipped from third to home plate, leading 3-0.
In the third game, Rainier was injured again, this time with a two-base home run by Thomas, defeating José Godoy. Then in the fourth game, Bishop won the sixth round for Tacoma on Eric Filia’s sacrifice flight.
Chihuahua’s reaction came from Brian O’Grady’s sixth inning from the right, bringing Luis Campusano to home base. The house was full and after one person was out, Iván Castillo was on the right, Patrick Kivlehan and O’Grady scored, but Pedro Florimon (Pedro Florimón) and Ben Ruta (Ben Ruta) were hit immediately, and the danger passed.
Campusano was even more excited in the game. He placed Dona Blanca on the other side of the fence. There were two outs on the board, so the pass was a tie and it was 6-4.
However, it was the Rainiers who made a three-pointer 9-4 higher in the eighth inning. At the top of the ninth inning, Brady Ryle fell consecutively to Florimon, Ruta and Tukupita Macano.
Jaime Schultz won, Lail was rescued, and Brett Kennedy lost.
This Sunday, the fourth game of the series will start at 2:35 pm.
