O’Neill’s triple leads Tacoma to 6-4 win over Round Rock


Tyler O’Neill hit a run-scoring triple in the eighth inning, leading the Tacoma Rainiers to a 6-4 win over the Round Rock Express on Sunday in Tacoma, Wash.

The triple by O’Neill, part of a two-run inning, gave the Rainiers a 5-4 lead before D.J. Peterson hit a sacrifice fly later in the inning.

The Express tied the game 4-4 when Ronald Guzman hit a two-run home run in the eighth.

Ryne Harper (2-0) got the win with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief while Jimmy Reyes (0-1) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game.

Guzman homered twice, driving home three runs and scoring a couple for the Express.

The Express will begin a four-game road series with the Reno Aces Monday. Round Rock will return home Friday to start an eight-game homestand, beginning with a four-game series with the Salt Lake Bees.
