Another day of baseball in the books. See how the teams and prospects performed in their games last night.


AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (9-9) won 5-2 (BOX SCORE)

Martinez was on the bump for the Grizzlies yesterday. He hasn't been very good this season owning a 6.89 ERA. While he allowed 10 hits in 5.1 innings, he limited the damage to just 2 runs. Fresno got on the board in the first inning on an RBI single from Moran and an RBI groundout from Fisher. The game would stay tied at 2 until Moran unloaded a 3 run HR in the bottom of the 6th, his 2nd HR of the season. The bullpen was very good with Tolliver, Guduan, and Jankoswki all having scoreless outings.

Note: Moran has 2 HR, 12 RBI in 17 games this year.
