AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (41-27) won 6-1 (BOX SCORE)

Thornton started for Fresno last night and was very good. He had a no-hit bid for 7.2 innings before allowing a single. He ended up going 8 shutout innings. A Tucker sac fly got the Grizzlies on the board in the 3rd inning. The Grizzlies picked up 2 more runs in the 5th on a Davis bases loaded walk and a Reed sac fly. Fresno put the game out of reach in the 6th scoring 3 runs on a solo HR from Mayfield, Straw RBI triple and an RBI double from Tucker. Boshers allowed a run in the 9th but close it out for the 6-1 win.

Note: Tucker is hitting .400 with 8 RBI, 4 SB over his last 10 games.

This game was one out away from being official before the rain came down. Rojas was 3-for-3 with a homer, Alvarez had 2 HR and 4 RBI in his return from the DL. Unfortunately, the game won’t be continued so all the stats from it are gone.
