Dominating win for Fresno last night. Hauschild got the start for the Grizzlies and was flat out dominant. He tossed 8 scoreless innings allowing just 2 hits, 1 walk, while striking out 9.

In the 7th inning they opened up the lead with 4 more runs thanks to an RBI single from Moran, 2 run double from Teoscar, and a Singleton RBI single. Fresno would finish off their night with 6 runs in the 8th. In that inning Tucker hit a solo HR, Fontana had an RBI double, Kemp added a 2 run double and Bregman capped it off with a 2 run single. Every Fresno player in the lineup had a hit and scored a run.
