Rainiers lose must-win in 13 against Salt Lake

The Tacoma Rainiers still have a chance of making the playoffs.

It’s just an exceptionally improbable one.

That’s because the Rainiers 8-6 loss in a 13-inning bout against Pacific Coast League northern division-leader Salt Lake on Wednesday puts Tacoma four games back of the Bees with five games left.

But this might as well have been the Rainiers season-finale, considering how inconceivable their postseason probability became.

Mariners minor league report, August 24, 2013: Mike Wilson comes back to beat the Rainiers

An old friend beat up on the Tacoma Rainiers on Friday night. Former outfielder Mike Wilson went 4-for-5 with five RBI in a 13-6 win. The Rainers are four games back of Salt Lake City in the Pacific Coast League Northern Division with 10 games to play. A playoff berth is a long shot. Tacoma starter Andrew Carraway struggled again, giving up 11 runs (nine earned) on 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings pitched.

Double A Jackson dropped it’s sixth straight game with a 3-2 loss to Chattanooga. Ramon Morla had three hits and Jabari Blash homered.

Abraham Almonte an electric option for Rainiers

­

The Tacoma Rainiers start Hector Noesi (3-2, 6-75 ERA) in the fourth of five games in this home series against the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.

With both Scott Savastano (torso strain) and Rich Poythress (left knee) going to the disabled list, the Rainiers post an even further depleted lineup. The most recognizable names in for tonight’s game are Carlos Peguero in right and Carlos Triunfel at shortstop.

But there is another you should get to know – Abraham Almonte.

Almonte started the season in Double-A Jackson, but since then has been one of the most stable players on the
