▪ Grizzlies today: The four-game set wraps up with Fresno RH Brady Rodgers (1-2, 6.58 ERA) looking to help hand his team a series win against Rockies’ top-prospect Jonathan Gray (1-3, 8.16). First pitch is 6:05 p.m. Rodgers pitched into the fifth while allowing three hits and no runs in his previous start vs. Tacoma, but walked four and exited after throwing 105 pitches.
▪ Thursday rewind: A grand slam by Matt Duffy wasn’t enough for the Grizzlies, who after winning the first two games fell to the Isotopes 9-8. Fresno’s Jon Singleton, a night after driving in a franchise record 10 runs in a 17-6 victory, went 0 for 4 with a pair of strikeouts. He had homered in his previous three games, including two Wednesday.
▪ Stat of the day: The Grizzlies fell to 15-19 on the road.
