Triple-A: Grizzlies rally falls short, 4-3

Brady Rodgers picked up his first loss since May 15 on Wednesday as he allowed two earned runs over four innings on 65 pitches against the Omaha Storm. He exited the game after being hit by a line drive in the leg.

Fresno scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth but an insurance run in the top of the frame proved to be the difference-maker. Jon Singleton and Tyler Heineman hit a double to pull within two runs in the inning and Alejandro Garcia forced home the second run with a groundout.
