The Grizzlies picked up where they left off on offense, but couldn’t overcome the dead arms as they lost 14-9 to the Bees. George Kontos was the opener and he was in the showers by the middle of the second as Salt Lake strafed him for six runs and seven hits in the space of 10 batters. The loss went to Henderson Alvarez3, who gave up two in three innings on four hits, including a homer. The reigning PCL Player of the Week Andrew Stevenson, who hit .621 with 3HR and 15RBI last week, singled twice and doubled once while Carter Kieboom reached base five times with a single, three walks, and his 13th HR.

Taylor Guilbeau lost the 2-1 lead he was handed but got the Sens to the 9th without further damage. Ronald Peña was perfect for two innings to pick up the win, his first.

Garcia, Sanchez, and Ryan Zimmerman each had two hits to lead the Harrisburg offense.
