The Grizzlies, for the most part, dominated the Chihuahuas, and only a 3-spot in the eighth made the game seem closer than it actually was. Brett Oberholtzer scattered five hits over 6.2 innings, gave up a solo shot, walked none, and struck out four. Nolan Fontana continued his playoff hot streak and reached base three times, Tyler White hit yet another home run, and Tony Kemp drove in two runs. Next up are the Round Rock Express in the PCL Finals.

26-year-old Jake Sanchez dominated, 19-year-old Francis Martes gave up homers to two 23-year-olds (and one 21-year-old), and the Hooks were eliminated after finishing up the regular season with a .636 winning percentage. Alfredo Gonzalez, of all people, collected three hit and scored on a Jio Mier double, but the Hooks couldn't manage anything else and were the latest Astros farm team to be eliminated from the playoffs after a strong season.
