The Rainiers opened the refurbished Cheney Stadium tonight with an easy 6-2 win over the Sacramento Rivercats.
There's been a lot of talk about the new scoreboard...here it is:
There's been even more talk about Jeff Clement's slow start. The Sexwagon was apparently annoyed at that, as he went 3-4 with a HR and a 2B. Here, mere moments before the HR....Mr. Jeff Clement:

Rainiers won behind Chris Seddon and Denny Stark. Seddon pitched 5 1/3 of 4 hit 2R ball. He K'd 5 and walked 2, overcoming a shaky first inning. The lefty threw a FB between 86-89 (mostly right at 87), and a 79mph change. Denny Stark went 3 2/3 IP of 1 hit, 3k 1BB ball. He's doing his best to separate himself from the rest of the Rainiers reclamation projects (Jim Parque, Kevin Appier, etc.).
