Minor League Notebook: August 29th

So...Norwich? They had the day off. San Jose? They had an off day as well. Augusta? Well, they had a game...that was rained out. But hey, the Grizzlies and Volcanoes got to play! That's how it goes sometimes. Just another (slow news) day in the minors!

Frenso Grizzlies (AAA): Sacramento 8, Fresno 6
WP: B. Reames (6-6, 3.29)
LP: J. Fikac (4-10, 4.61)
SV: J. Garcia (19)
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.

Notable Performances:
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
