AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (33-35) won 15-14 (BOX SCORE)

Big game for the Fresno offense. Kemmer led off the game with a HR but that was the only run they would score until the 6th. In the 6th inning, they got 6 runs on a Reed sac fly, Kemmer RBI single, White 2 run double, and Tucker 2 run HR (12). They would better that in the 7th getting 7 runs on a 2 run HR from Brignac (7), 3 run HR from White (9), and 2 run HR from Moran (14). White added another run in the 8th on an RBI double, his 6th RBI of the night. Thornton got the start and went 6 innings but allowed 7 runs. The bullpen of Guduan and Holmes got roughed up but the offense scored just enough to win it.
