AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (4-3) won 13-9 (BOX SCORE)

Big time comeback for Fresno last night. Tacoma jumped out to a 1-0 lead but Fresno tied it in the first when Kemp scored on a wild pitch. Tacoma put up 3 runs in the 2nd but Fresno bounced back with 2 runs on a Nunez RBI double and Kemp RBi single. Tacoma would then run off five more runs in the 5th and 6th inning to take a 9-3 lead. Thornton got roughed up a bit allowed 5 runs in 4.1 innings.

The Fresno offense would pick him up though scoring 5 runs in the 6th inning thanks to a Mayfield RBI single, Garcia 2 run single, and Ferguson 2 run double. This made it 9-8 heading into the 7th. In the bottom of the 7th the offense put up another crooked number dropping 5 more runs on a Nunez 2 run double, Kemp RBI double, bases loaded walk to Tucker and another scoring on an error. McCurry closed the door with two scoreless innings to seal it.
