Rainiers Ride Grand Slam to Victory over Chihuahuas 11-8

Zach Shank hit Tacoma’s second grand slam in as many nights Friday, as the Rainiers beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 11-8. Shank’s grand slam put Tacoma ahead 7-4 in the fourth inning and the Rainiers never relinquished the lead, despite late runs by El Paso.

The two teams split the four-game series.

Jamie Romak went 4-for-5 with two home runs and four RBIs in the loss. Romak has eight home runs this season to lead the Pacific Coast League and has five longballs in his last five games. Cory Spangenberg went 3-for-5 with an RBI, his third consecutive multi-hit game. Collin Cowgill, Rafael Ortega and Dusty Coleman had two hits apiece for El Paso.

Seattle Mariners reliever Steve Cishek went two thirds of an inning in an injury rehab start, throwing 20 pitches in the no-decision. Jake Smith, Carter Capps and Michael Dimock all had relief appearances without surrendering any earned runs for El Paso.

It was the Chihuahuas first series split this season.

Box Score | Team Records: Tacoma (9-6), El Paso (7-9)

Chihuahuas Blank Tacoma 5-0

The El Paso Chihuahuas shut out the Tacoma Rainiers 5-0 Thursday, posting their first nine-inning shutout since May 11, 2014. The Rainiers entered the day with a league-leading .314 team batting average.

Aaron Northcraft tossed four shutout innings in his first start of the season. Northcraft joined the rotation when Justin Hancock was placed on the disabled list. He was succeeded by relievers Daniel Moskos, Eric Yardley and Frank Garces, who all had scoreless outings also.

El Paso scored its first two runs during a five-hit, two-run third inning, with runs coming on RBI singles by Ryan Schimpf and Carlos Asuaje. Asuaje’s RBI double and Hunter Renfroe’s two-run home run in the fifth led to three more Chihuahuas’ runs.

Asuaje went 3-for-4 and was the second Chihuahuas’ infielder this homestand to fall a home run shy of a cycle. (Jemile Weeks was the other).
