Express 7, Rainiers 4

Three out of four, seven out of eight. Those would be losses, and this is not a team going in the right direction. The Rainiers lost tonight in Round Rock, dropping a series to a team that hadn’t had a winning series since the first week of April. Tacoma took the lead in first and in the fourth, but neither time could starter Jake Woods keep the lead. Mike Morse was the offensive star tonight, going 2-4 with a homer. It just wasn’t enough as Woods was touched up for 5 runs over six innings.

The Rainiers now head to Albuquerque for a four-game series against the Isotopes. A combination of bandbox ballpark and hot, dry high-altitude air make for the possibility of extra offense. Ryan Feierabend (1-2, 3.38) starts for the Rainiers against Isotope Jeff Fulchino (2-0, 5.02)

Also, reliever Ryan Rowland-Smith was called up to Seattle to replace Jeff Weaver, who was put in the disabled list.
