Chihuahuas fall to Rainiers Thursday despite new team record

Chihuahuas fall 6-5 to Tacoma

The Chihuahuas jumped out to a 5-0 lead Thursday night at home against the Tacoma Rainiers but allowed six unanswered runs to fall 6-5 in 10 innings. 

Chihuahuas pitcher Dinelson Lamet struck out a team-record 13 batters in just 5 1/3 innings.  That total is also a new career high for Lamet. 

Lamet struck out every position player for the Rainiers at least once. 

The Dogs managed to take a 5-1 lead into the 7th when Tacoma's Daniel Vogelbach hit a game-tying grand slam.  It was Vogelbach's second straight game with a homer. 

The two teams could not break the deadlock over the course of the next two innings. 

But in the 10th inning, Tacoma broke through thanks to back-to-back doubles by Boog Powell and Tuffy Gosewisch. 

The Chihuahuas fell to 7-8 on the season with the loss, while the Rainiers improved to 8-6. 

The two squads meet for the fourth and final game of their current series Friday at 7:05 p.m. at Southwest University Park.
