FRESNO, Calif. Four Fresno pitchers combined to throw a two-hit shutout, as the Grizzlies blanked the Bees 1-0 on Sunday night.
Brandon Wood had a one-out double in the second inning and Chris Walker added a one-out infield single in the third, as Nick Pereira, Ryan Sadowski (4-2), Billy Sadler and Kevin Gryboski had retired 20 consecutive batters at one point in the game. Gryboski worked a scoreless ninth for his fourth save.
The only run of the game came when Scott McClain led off the fifth with a home run.
Shane Loux (10-6) was the tough luck losing pitcher for the Bees, as he tossed the first complete game of the season by a Salt Lake starter. Loux allowed just one run on six hits, two strikeouts and one walk.
NOTE: The Los Angeles Angels have placed catcher Tim Duff on the inactive list after his wife gave birth last week. He is expected to rejoin the Bees soon. Meanwhile, catcher Alberto Rosario has joined the Bees from Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. Rosario, 21, has yet to play in a game for Salt Lake.
