Minor League Notebook: June 13th

The Fresno Grizzlies have been plundered by the major league parent club this weekend, losing 4 top performers in a span of 4 days, including the league's co-leader in home runs and one of the top relievers in the PCL. How would they fair? Plus, a couple more stolen bases in Augusta for some kid who already has 30+ of them.

WP: B. Hennessey (3-2, 4.34)

No Todd Linden? No Adam Shabala? No Jesse Foppert or Jack Taschner? No problem. The Grizzlies, who have found their roster plundered by the big league Giants in the last few days, scored 9 runs in the first inning to put away Colorado Springs easy. Mickey Lopez went 4 for 6 with a home runs on the day, and Tony Torcato was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles.
