Blake Beavan and the Rainiers face Evan MacLane and the Redbirds tonight, beginning at 5:05pm. This series is for all the marbles. There are so many marbles at stake that when Jack Wilson walked over to wish Tacoma good luck, he slipped and broke his leg.
The Rainiers, remember, will be the 'home team' for Game 1 and Game 2, even though they'll be playing in front of a Memphis crowd. The Rainiers will be the home team tonight in the same way that the Mariners will be the home team tonight.
