Tacoma beat the Las Vegas Aviator Wednesday night, 8-7, and broke the home franchise record while they were at it.
The Rainiers achieved three home runs, bringing the season’s total to 191. This is now the highest single-season total in the history of the Tacoma franchise, which dates back to 1960.
The previous record was set last year. On-court running totals across the sport have increased over the past decade, as a result of a combination of bunny baseballs and changes to the mechanics of swinging and hitting targets.
Homer Derek Hill at the top of the fourth inning tied the record. After five rounds, Kyle Lewis broke the record with a green light move at the top of the ninth round.
If we had chosen to save a baseball game for a nonexistent collection of Rainier’s artifacts, it would have been…soggy. Lewis’ record-breaking explosion fell into the pool at the Las Vegas Ballpark, and was retrieved by a snorkeling aviator fan.
Tacoma suffered its 191st home race after that with a pair of hits later, when Louis Torrens pulled a blast to the left on a lockout run that turned out to be necessary.
The win lifted Rainier’s record to 66-71 – the closest the team has been to the 0.500 mark since the team was 5-10 on April 21. The .500 mark can still be achieved – just have to go 9-4 from here out there!
