The Sounds and Tacoma Rainiers continue their four-game series tonight with the Game 3, and the series is even at one win apiece. Each game has gone extra innings so far, with the Sounds losing in 12 on Monday before claiming a victory in 10 innings yesterday. Tonight Frankie Montas (0-1, 4.62) opposes Sam Gaviglio (3-5, 3.79).

Tonight’s interview is with outfielder Boog Powell, who was re-acquired by the A’s last Sunday from Seattle for Yonder Alonso. Powell, who was originally drafted by the A’s in ’12 before being traded to Tampa Bay and then later traded to Seattle, was with Tacoma at the time of Sunday’s trade, so he’s quickly facing his old club as he’s joined the Sounds and re-united with some old teammates. He discusses these last several days as well as the origin of both his given name and his nickname.

The Sounds continue their eight-game road trip tonight as they take on the Reno Aces (D-backs) in Game 2 of a four-game series. The Sounds had an early lead last night but ultimately fell, 4-3, in low-scoring game that is very atypical for Reno. The Sounds have dropped four straight games as they take the field tonight in Northern Nevada. They’ll send Corey Walter (2-5, 5.82), up against Arizona prospect Taylor Clarke, who makes his Triple-A debut and went 9-7 with a 2.91 ERA in 21 starts at Double-A.

Tonight’s interview is with Oakland A’s player development director Keith Lieppman, who’s in Reno to watch the Sounds in person for a few days. He discusses Frankie Montas’ outing last night, Matt Olson and Franklin Barreto remaining with the Sounds and not being in Oakland right after the trade deadline, and the importance of playing multiple positions for guys like Yairo Munoz and Joey Wendle.
