Fresno Grizzlies (AAA): Salt Lake 21, Fresno 5 (10 innings)
WP: D. Bergman (6-3, 2.44)
LP: M. Wylie (0-2, 9.49)
Its bad enough to lose in extra innings, but its worse to get blown out in them. Mitch Wylie had just one out left in the 9th to get with a 5-4 lead to end the game for Fresno, but two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Nick Gorneaults single to tie the game. In the 10th, a 1 out error started the bad news for the Grizzlies. That was followed by a walk and a single to load the bases again against Wylie, at which point Brandon Puffer came in. Puffer proceeded to give up a single that allowed what would be the winning run to come in. But that wouldnt be it. Puffer gave up a double, a single, a walk, a hit by pitch and a wild pitch and Salt Lake scored 7 in the extra frame to put the game farther out of reach than it shouldve been. That erased one of Matt Cains better starts in some time, and Todd Lindens 24th home run of the season.
