Jurica and Williams, while playing the two most difficult defensive positions, reached base three times each for the Grizzlies. They also had their first XBHs this year.
Petit allowed eight hits, but the only run came on a solo HR as he stranded all other runners. Efficient with his pitch count, he threw just 83 pitches (58 strikes) in 6.0 IP. Hembree pitched a scoreless 9th inning for his 2nd save. Wheeler, the former Giants' top prospect now with the Mets, allowed just one earned run but took the loss with three unearned runs.
