Hoover reverted to the mean as he gave up eight runs on eight hits and two walks in four innings thrown for (somehow only) his fourth loss. Derek Self followed with three runs over two innings before Justin Miller and Taylor Guilbeau starting dealing some zeroes. Down ten (11-1), The Grizzlies got two back in the 6th with Collin Cowgill’s 10th HR and three in the 8th, which featured Yadiel Hernandez’s 20th HR(link to .mp4 file, courtesy of Fresno PR) while Raudy Read closed out the scoring with his 14th HR(same).
