Fresno (7-2)

These games are crazy. Fresno had an 8-2 lead after three, and then Las Vegas scored the next seven runs (with a 6-run 6th inning) to take a 9-8 lead over Fresno. Then three more runs in the 7th for Fresno gave the Grizzlies an 11-9 lead, then Las Vegas brought it to 11-10 and James Hoyt threw a perfect 9th to preserve the 11-10 win. Alex White threw 5IP, 9H/6R (5ER), 3K:2BB; Gonzalo Sanudo made his Triple-A debut and allowed 5H/3ER (2HR) in 0.2IP; Jordan Jankowski held Las Vegas to 1H/0ER in 1.1IP; Josh Fields allowed the run to bring it to 11-10 with 3H/1ER in the 8th, and James Hoyt did his thing.

Nolan Fontana (2B, BB), L.J. Hoes (2B, BB), Andrew Aplin (HR, 2RBI) had two hits each. Jon Singleton (3-run homer) and Max Stassi (2RBI) added home runs. Domingo Santana was 1x4 with a triple, walk, and three runs scored.
