Rainiers 7, Sky Sox 6

What a wild, weird ballgame this was. The Rainiers get a quick run in the first on Wladimir Balentien's sixth homer, then give up five in the second after starter Jim Parque had a nightmarish inning that saw the Sox bat around. Give Parque credit though, he held on and went four more scoreless innings. The Rainiers scratched out runs in the fifth and and seventh before taking the lead with a three-spot in the eighth. The Rainiers scored without the benefit of a hit, combining back to back walks by LaHair and Morse with Jeff Clement being hit by a pitch. Rob Johnson was safe on a botched force attempt at first, thanks to a throwing error by Colorado Springs' third baseman Ian Stewart. Gookie Dawkins hit into a run-scoring double play, and Oswaldo Navarro hit into another run-scoring error. A sloppy end to a sloppy, rainy game

But the Rainiers will certainly take it. This is a nice comeback win for Tacoma, as they push their win streak to four. Hope for slightly better weather tomorrow, as Jake Woods (0-1, 12.00) takes on Ubaldo Jimenez (1-2, 10.90). Two guys with double-digit ERAs and the possibility of rain. Could be a long night
