Grizzlies Report for 6/7: Fresno 7, Las Vegas 2

The Fresno BeeJune 7, 2014 

Grizzlies cruise: Four runs in the first inning was all Grizzlies pitcher Mitch Lively needed as Fresno coasted to a 7-2 victory over host Las Vegas in a Pacific Coast League game Saturday night. Lively (3-3) picked up the win after pitching six innings, scattering six hits and giving up two runs (both earned) and matching a season high with eight strikeouts.

Duvall power: Adam Duvall extended his team-high hitting streak to 16 games with a two-run home run in the first inning. His 19th homer leads the PCL, ahead of Round Rock's Brad Snyder, who has 18. Duvall's homer was his sixth against Las Vegas, the most against any PCL club, and he finished the game with four RBIs.

Notable: In Friday's 10-1 Grizzlies' victory, Brett Krill became the first Fresno player to make his Triple-A debut as a defensive replacement (non-pitcher) without having a plate appearance since Ydwin Villegas in 2011 against Oklahoma.

Friday's rewind: Juan Ciriaco's five-hit game was the first since 2012 when Nick Noonan did it against Sacramento. The four doubles were the most by a Grizzly in a single game since Roger Kieschnick had three last season.

Ownage: Entering Saturday, Kirk Nieuwenhuis of the 51s had hit five of his eight home runs against the Grizzlies. He was batting .341 (15 for 44) with two doubles, five homers and 12 RBIs over 13 games against Fresno.

Up next: The Grizzlies and Aces wrap up their four-game series at 12:05 p.m. today. Grizzlies LHP Edwin Escobar (3-5, 4.82 ERA) goes against Aces RHP Logan Verrett (4-2, 4.97). Escobar, the Giants' No. 2 prospect according to Baseball America, is 2-2 with a 6.08 mark in seven road starts. He earned a no-decision in his season debut in April at Las Vegas, where he allowed five runs (four earned) on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings (the Grizzlies won that game 8-6).
