Logan Allen had one of his best starts of the early season, allowing one earned run in six innings, while striking out seven without walking a batter.
Outfielder Boog Powell went 2-for-4 in his first start of the season after beginning the year on El Paso’s injured list. Reliever Robert Stock struck out three Grizzlies in a row after Fresno loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the eighth inning.
