Friday recap: Tyler White hit a two-run homer in the sixth to break up a scoreless game and Brett Oberholtzer didn't allow a run in 6.1 innings as Fresno defeated Sacramento 2-0 before an announced crowd of 9,449 at Chukchansi Park. The Grizzlies (66-47) extended their season-high win streak to seven and remain undefeated during the nine-game homestand that runs through the weekend. Grizzlies reliever Tyson Perez helped Oberholtzer out of a two-on jam in the seventh, inducing an inning-ending double play. Perez got another double-play grounder after allowing a leadoff single in the eighth. Jason Stoffel pitched a perfect ninth for his third save.
Grizzlies on Saturday: Fresno RH Mike Hauschild (5-3, 3.54 ERA) is coming off one of the better starts of his career, scattering five hits through eight shutout innings against Albuquerque on Monday. At 7:05 p.m., he faces Sacramento RH Tommy Hanson (0-4, 7.33), the former Atlanta Braves ace and five-year major leaguer who last pitched in the bigs in 2013. The Grizzlies, at 10-4 after Friday, are ensured a winning record in the season series. That’s happened two other times — 10-6 in 2011 and 9-7 in 2001.
Stat of the day: 15 — consecutive game hitting streak for Grizzlies 2B Joe Sclafani, even with inconsistent playing time this season. He has hit .375 (21 for 56) during that stretch. Sclafani, on the bench Friday, has the longest active streak in the Pacific Coast League and is tied with two others (Matt Duffy, Domingo Santana) for the team season high. Santana is no longer with Fresno after he was part of a trade that sent him to the Milwaukee organization.
