Another Quad Cities sweep!


Sacramento 6, Fresno 5

W- Matt Gage (2-0)
L- Trent Thornton (2-2)
S- Manny Parra (2)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies mounted a 9th-inning rally that fell one run short.

Trent Thornton had a bare minimum quality start, allowing seven hits, walking one, and striking out eight. Buddy Boshers went two innings and all three runs he allowed came off a two-run and a solo homer. He allowed one other hit and struck out three. Chris Nunn issued a walk and struck out the side in the 9th.

J.D. Davis ripped a ground-rule double with two outs in the 6th and scored Fresno's first run of the day on an A.J. Reed single. The Grizzlies hit five consecutive singles to start the 9th; the last two from Tony Nuñez and Drew Ferguson resulted in runs. Davis hit a two-run single to cut the deficit to one run, but he and Ferguson were left on base to end the game. Davis finished 3-5 on the afternoon, while Reed, Mayfield, and Alejandro Garcia all finished with two hits.

Cy Sneed will start the series finale. He'll go up against Dereck Rodriguez at 6:35 Pacific.

Both Quad Cities runs came in the 5th inning. Jake Meyers led off the inning with a double and scored the first run of the day on a Corey Julks pop-fly single. Julks then proceeded to steal second and scored the other run on a J.J. Matijevic double. Meyers and Matijevic both finished 2-4 and both of their hits were doubles. Matijevic also has four consecutive multi-hit games.
