Rainiers Savastano Walk-Off Makes Himself Winner
As you may have noticed in the Mariners Minor League Report, Tacoma’s Scott Savastano made himself a winner last night by hitting a walk-off solo home run in the 18th inning after pitching a scoreless 18th inning.
Savastano began the game on the bench but ended up logging time at first base in the 13th and then moved to the mound in the 18th.
Mike Curto, the Rainiers play-by-play man, has a detailed blog post about last night’s game with a few tidbits. Curto’s “Booth, Justice and the American Pastime” is a must-read if you want to follow the Tacoma Rainiers and the future Mariners.
