After Josh Lucas let in the free runner in the top of the 10th, the Grizzlies got a single from Chuck Taylor and a two-run double from Wilmer Difo in the bottom half to secure their fifth straight win, 7-6. Blazek’s torch job spoiled Wil Crowe’s stellar start of six innings of one-run ball on five hits and three walks.
