While every hitter in the Grizzlies' lineup had at least one hit, Arias and Williams were two of the three Grizzlies with two hits each. For the young season, they have pretty different AVGs, with Arias at .373 and Williams at .186. Kieschnick connected in the 1st inning for his 5th HR. Reaching base four times, the Mariners' Triunfel had another good game against the Grizzlies.
Kown allowed two baserunners per inning but kept the overall damage to just three runs. The 3 ER and 8 H were both new season highs through four starts. His ERA remains below 3.00.
