Here is the full text of the Seattle Times’ coverage of the Seattle Rainiers’ final game at Sicks’, on Wednesday, September 1, 1976. Rather than use one of its reporters, the Times thought the United Press International wire story was sufficient:
George Meyring pitched a one-hitter as the Seattle Rainiers wound up their Northwest League baseball season with a 2-0 victory over Portland’s Mavericks last night at Sicks’ Stadium.
In other games, Walla Walla downed Eugene, 2-0, and Grays Harbor drubbed Boise, 12-4.
The Rainiers still have a slim mathematical chance to tie for the league’s North Division title. Seattle is 1 1/2 games behind leading Portland, which moves to Bellingham for its final three games.
The Rainiers scored one run in the fourth inning on a squeeze bunt by Ken Peters. They scored their final run in the seventh when Doug Peterson singled home Rob Craft.
