TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Rob Johnson hit a two-run homer and Jon
Nelson doubled in two runs as the red-hot Tacoma Rainiers stretched
their season-high winning streak to eight games with a 5-3 victory
over the Albuquerque Isotopes last night at Cheney Stadium.
The Rainiers won for the 11th time in 13 games.
Six-foot-five right-hander Andy Baldwin started and earned the
win to improve his record to 8-5. Baldwin pitched seven innings,
giving up two runs on nine hits.
The teams wind up a four-game series in a game that starts at
11:30 a.m. today before the Rainiers open a four-game series at Las
Vegas, Nevada, beginning Friday night.
