Video+Story: Fresno Strikes First, Grizzlies Roll to 11-5 Victory over Chihuahuas

The opening seven Fresno batters reached base Sunday and the Grizzlies carried that first-inning rally to an 11-5 win at Southwest University Park.

The Grizzlies won two of the three games in the rare three-game Pacific Coast League series.

Ryan Schimpf went 1-for-4 with a long solo home run to right field in his first game since being optioned by San Diego. Jabari Blash went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, his third consecutive game with a homer.

Dating back to the Albuquerque road trip, Blash has five home runs in his last six games. Carlos Asuaje, Nick Buss and Christian Villanueva collected two hits each for El Paso.

The two teams combined for 56 runs in the high-offense three-game series. The Chihuahuas do not play on Monday.

Next Game: Tuesday, 7:05 pm at Southwest University Park. Tacoma RHP Rob Whalen (0-3, 5.18) vs. El Paso RHP Andre Rienzo (2-0, 2.60). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
