TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tacoma Rainiers avoided a four-game sweep Sunday night with a 6-4 win over the Tucson Padres.

It was a big night for Tucson native and Sunnyside High School grad Stefen Romero. The Rainiers outfielder finished the game with three hits and three runs batted in, two of which came on a two-run home run his 8th of the season.

Two of Romero's eight home runs have come in games at Kino Stadium.

The 2010 12th round pick missed the first three games of the series with an injured leg. Injuries this season have limited Romero to just 87 games. He's batting .285 with eight home runs and 65 RBI to go along with 23 doubles.

Romero is one of two Tucson products who spent the weekend at home with the Rainiers.

Tom Wilhelmsen has made five appearance for Tacoma since being sent down from the Seattle Mariners.

Wilhelmsen has been the Mariners closer the last two seasons but struggled through his last 25 appearances in the big leagues in 2013 (8.10 ERA).

The 2002 Tucson Magnet High School product has had a meteoric rise to the big leagues after returning to the game in 2009.

Since winning the closer spot during Spring Training in 2012, the 6'6 righthander has saved 53 games for Seattle.
