The Fresno Grizzlies offense was silenced for the most of the game for the second straight night, as they dropped their second straight to Oklahoma City on Wednesday evening. Trailing by four in the bottom of the ninth, the Grizzlies rallied for three straight run scoring hits to pull them within a single tally. The late inning surge was not enough though, as Fresno ultimately fell 4-3 to the visiting RedHawks. The loss in the final game of the series marks the first series loss for the Grizzlies since returning from the All-Star Break July 16th.
Left handed starter Steve Hammond allowed four runs over 5.1 innings of work, including a two run home run in the opening frame to Oklahoma City designated hitter Chris Davis. The first inning round tripper was Davis’ second of the series, and the third time the RedHawks hit a ball out of the park in their first three outs during the series.
