Fresno offense had a good showing last night. Mayfield got the scoring started with a solo HR in the first, his 15th of the season. In the 2nd inning, Fresno put up 3 more runs on a Stubbs sac fly, De Goti sac fly, and Straw RBI single. They would add 3 more runs in the 3rd on a Davis 3 run HR, his 16th of the season. Armenteros got the start and while he allowed just 2 runs in 5.2 innings, he also walked 5. Fresno would add 2 more in the 6th on a Reed sac fly and another run scoring on an error. Ferrell relieved Armenteros and was great striking out 4 over 2.1 scoreless innings. Ramsey closed it out with a scoreless 9th.
