Grizzlies Report for Aug. 29: Omaha 9, Fresno 5

Grizzlies on Saturday: The Omaha Storm Chasers got right after Fresno starter Dan Straily, who faced six batters before recording an out during the Grizzlies’ 9-5 loss in Omaha. Alex Gordon drew a lead-off walk that sparked a rally of five straight singles for an early five-run advantage. Straily eventually got out of the inning, retiring the final three batters of the order. The second inning was more of the same for the Grizzlies, as Gordon walked again, only to score on Cheslor Cuthbert’s two-run double. Fresno received solo homers from four players – Matt Duffy, Tyler Heineman, Jonathan Villar and Jon Singleton – but it wasn’t enough to catch up with the Storm Chasers. Straily was tagged for 11 hits and nine runs (all earned) in 3 1/3 innings as the Grizzlies dropped their fourth game in a row. Trent Woodward, who joined Triple-A Fresno from Class-A Quad Cities on Saturday, was 1 for 2 with a single and a ground out in his Grizzlies debut.
