LP: J. Fikac (4-10, 4.61)

So much for the hot streak by former major leaguer Matt Kinney. Kinney gave up 6 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks in 5.1 innings. However, Fresno was able to keep it close, on the backs of 2 runs homers by Mike Cervenak and Julio Ramirez. But two unearned runs after back to back errors by pitcher Jeremy Fikac and 2nd baseman Kevin Frandsen spelled doom for the Grizzlies.
Mike Cervenak: 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 SO, .312
Julio Ramirez: 2-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, .245
Matt Kinney: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO, 1 HR, 4.88 ERA
