Tacoma Rainiers beat Las Vegas 51s 3-2 on May 5, Play-by-Play note

May 5, 2014


Las Vegas

The Highlights:

Noah Syndergaard – 5.2 IP, 7 H, ER, 3 BB, 8 SO, 95 pitches, 61 strikes (64%), 26 batters faced, 4 groundouts, 3 fly outs

Andrew Brown – 2-4, outfield assist which saved a run in the 8th
Taylor Teagarden – 1-4, R, RBI, HR, 3 SO – solo HR to give 51’s the lead top 8

What to Know

Syndergaard was pretty good, suffering from occasional bouts of wildness, but not giving up a lot of hard contact. Carraway looked very good for Tacoma. Teagarden gave the 51s a lead with a solo HR in the top of the 9th but Walters gave up 3 singles to load the bases leading off the bottom half and then walked in the tying and go-ahead runs on back-to-back batters - he never recorded an out.

Recap to come later or in the morning.
