Gillaspie had his 6th HR while reaching base three times. He has hit .335/.385/.476 through 40 PCL games. Peguero had the Grizzlies' lone multi-hit line. After hitting below .240 in both April and May, he is hitting better than .275 through the the first ten games in June.
After allowing just 2 ER over his previous five starts, Petit allowed 2 ER in a start for the first time in nearly a month. Hembree issued a couple walks but got his 10th save. He threw just 6 of 15 pitches for strikes. He now has 8 BB and 7 K in 9.1 IP over his last ten appearances.
