Greg Halman

Greg Halman is back with the Tacoma Rainiers and he announced his presence in a big way. After 48 days on the disabled list with a broken hand, Halman was activated before yesterday’s game and homered in his first at-bat to lead the Rainiers to a 10-6 win over Las Vegas.

You can listen to the venerable Mike Curto make Halman’s homer call right HERE.

Halman finished the game 3-for-5. Mike Carp extended his hitting streak to 14 games, going 2-for-6. Dustin Ackley had one hit, but did strike out four times. The first time in  his career he’s ever taken the golden sombrero.


Double A Jackson picked up 3-2 win in the 10th inning. Jake Shaffer led off the top of the 10th inning with a double and later scored on pinch-hitter James McOwen’s sacrifice fly.  Shaffer was 3-for-4 and Kyle Seager added three hits.

Class A High Desert got home runs from Vinnie Catricala and Mario Martinez to pick up a 7-4 win.

Class A Clinton was rained out.
