Fresno Grizzlies season winds down

By Melissa Felkins

The Fresno Grizzlies, Triple-A affiliate for the San Francisco Giants, are set to end their season on September 1st and unfortunately, it will end once again on a disappointing note.

With just one game left, the Grizzlies are currently  67-76 and will finish well below .500 and are currently 12 games back out of the Pacific Coast League Pacific Northern Division. The team has also went 3-7 in the last 10 games.

Of course, they have seen the notable promotions of Joe Panik and Andrew Susac, as well as Adam Duvall, George Kontos, Juan Perez, Travis Ishikawa, all who have had opportunities to shine on this injury ridden San Francisco Giants team.

The Grizzlies will finish out the season against the Tacoma Rainiers, the Triple-A affiliate for the Seattle Mariners, a team they’re currently split with 2-2 in the series.

It’s not all bad though. Adam Duvall was named to the All-PCL First Team, mostly due to this action with the bat hitting .296 and 26 home runs.

Chris Dominguez also became the first player in the organization to have 20 doubles, 20 home runs, 20 stolen bases, and 80 RBIs. He received his first big league call up today with the expanded rosters.
