A grand ending – Danny Worth, who entered as a late-game replacement, launched a walk-off grand slam in the ninth as Fresno defeated Colorado Springs 8-4 on Saturday before an announced crowd of 5,296 at Chukchansi Park. It was Worth’s second grand slam and his seventh homer this season, surpassing the six he had in 106 games with Reno last year. In addition, Grizzlies third baseman Matt Duffy hit his third home run in his past five games. Duffy, who started his Triple-A season in a massive slump, is hitting 13 of 39 with four homers, 10 runs and 15 RBIs in his past 10 games.
Up next – Fresno RH Brad Peacock (0-1, 5.67 ERA) will face Colorado Springs RH Taylor Jungmann (1-2, 12.76) on Sunday with first pitch at 1:05 p.m. Peacock, who has been on the seven-day disabled list, was pummeled in his most recent start May 20 when he allowed six runs on three hits and six walks in 2.2 innings. Jungmann, a 2011 first-round pick, began this season in the Milwaukee Brewers’ rotation but went 0-4 with a 9.15 ERA in five starts. Jungmann has struggled in Triple-A, too. In his past two starts combined, the 6-foot-6 Jungmann has allowed 10 runs in 5.1 innings.
Reed update – Grizzlies first baseman A.J. Reed was back in the starting lineup after he was pulled in the middle of Friday’s game. Reed said acting manager Josh Bonifay made the move because he felt Reed did not hustle sufficiently on the shot to the right field corner that resulted in a double, but arguably could have been stretched to a triple. Reed was on the disabled list with a pulled hamstring earlier this month that sidelined him for 11 days.
Prospect watch – Colorado Springs shortstop Orlando Arcia was 1 for 6 with two runs Friday in his first game against the Grizzlies. Arcia, considered the top prospect in the Brewers organization, was hitting .295 with four homers, 23 RBIs and seven steals in 41 Triple-A games this season.
