Sunday was a featured day for pitching in the Mariners organization as three of their better pitching prospects took the mound in starts – James Paxton (Tacoma), Taijuan Walker (Jackson) and Tyler Pike (Clinton).

Of the three, Pike had the best day, throwing six scoreless innings, allowing one hit, but walking five and striking out two in Clinton’s 5-2 win. 

In Tacoma, Paxton made it just 4 2/3 innings and needed 98 pitches to make that far. He gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits, with three strikeouts and no walks. But the Rainiers prevailed 6-5 thanks to Carlos Triunfel’s walk-off homer. 

Down in Jackson, Taijuan Walker had his shortest outing of the season, going 4 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs (five earned) on eight hits with two walks and five strikeouts in a 10-4 loss to Birmingham.

Class A High Desert got roughed up by Bakersfield in a 10-1 loss
