Fresno – OFF DAY
After a 3-6 homestand that dropped them under .500, Grizzlies make the first of two road trips to the Central Time Zone with three against the New Orleans Baby Cakes and four against the Oklahoma Dodgers. Fresno, which has been hot and cold with streaks of three or more wins or losses eight times already, is just a ½ off the pace in the PCL Pacific Northern division
Harrisburg – OFF DAY
Harrisburg returns to the City Isle for a three-game series against Binghamton before heading back out on road for six against Reading and Richmond. The Sens have been killer at home (21-9) but ordinary on the road (14-12) but have reduced their magic number to nine vs. the second-place RubberDucks, ten vs. the third-place Seawolves, and seven vs. the fourth-place Curve.
