The Grizzlies doubled up the RiverCats, now the AAA affiliate of their former bosses, the Giants, by knocking around a rehabbing Matt Cain.

The Hooks swept the twinbill by bludgeoning the Missions in game 2, scoring in all but 1 inning.

Mark Appel had a nice outing; the only two snags he encountered were solo homers. He allowed 4 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 6 in 6.1 innings. Juan Minaya ran into some difficulty closing it out, but he had a 13-run cushion to work with. He allowed a run on 3 hits.

Like he did in game 1, Chan-Jong Moon scored the first Hooks run by coming home on a fielder's choice in the 1st. Later in the inning, Conrad Gregor added a 2-run single, and that's when the floodgates opened. Teoscar Hernandez hit an RBI single and Tyler White smacked a 2-run double in the 2nd. Jon Kemmer struck in the 3rd as he whacked his 7th homer of the year. Teoscar scored on a double play in the 4th.

White struck again with a 2-run single in the 7th, and Gregor capped it off with a 2-run homer, his 3rd of the year. Heras (2 2B, 3 RBI, 4 R) and Gregor (HR, 4 RBI, R) both went 4-5.

Yes, really.

This game made it past the 5th and was eventually called in the 6th. Because this was the final regular-season meeting between the River Bandits and Loons, this game is official.

Jake Nottingham whacked his 9th homer of the year, a 2-run shot that put the Banditos up 2-1 in the 1st. Ramon Laureano added a sac fly in the 4th. Sean McMullen finished 2-3 with a double and a run scored.
